WorldVitalRecords.com add another large Wonderbase to its site
More than 9 million World War II army enlistment records are now searchable online at WorldVitalRecords.com through a shipment provided by National Archives and Records Administration (NARA), one of the largest archives in the United States.
NARA created the database in 2002 in conjunction with the Bureau of the Census. The World War II Army Enlistment database contains the majority of the Army enlistments during World War II from 1938-1946 and will be searchable for FREE until April 5, 2007.
This rich database contains the serial number, name, state and county of residence, place of enlistment, date of enlistment, race, grade, Army branch, term of enlistment, longevity, nativity (place of birth), year of birth, civilian occupation, marital status, education, military occupational specialty (1945 and later), height and weight (before 1943), component, and box and reel number of the microfilmed punch cards.
At WorldVitalRecords.com, these NARA databases are part of a global search, allowing users to search all of the databases at one time. These records have also been enhanced with geomapping and the Google Book search features.
We, at WorldVitalRecords.com, feel that the World War II generation brought us out of the Great Depression and established much of the American modern infrastructure we enjoy today. We celebrate their lives with the inclusion of these records.
