This website was launched befittingly on the 71st Anniv. of the United States involvement in WWII, 12/7/2012.

Seventy-one years ago, the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor, Hawaii, brought the U.S. into World War II. In his address asking Congress for a declaration of war, President Franklin D. Roosevelt called Dec. 7, 1941, a date that "will live in infamy."


The Service Men and Women **pages are updated with additional information often, as more old news items, photos and/or bios and obituaries are found. These history items are essential in completing the stories of these individuals who served during WWII from Iowa.
THANKS again to Researchers, Pat Holt Juon and Terry Hirsch! And Huge Thanks to Connie Swearingen for her Woodbury & NWIowa submissions.
