  1. This is definitely a great way to get started when looking up an ancestor or relative’s military service. Military research in general is an exciting tool for understanding one’s family history and uncovering the mysteries surrounding a veteran’s military service. In addition to using online records I recommend actually tracing the footsteps of individual veterans during their military service which is an option that few folks are aware of. This process can help to uncover one’s military heritage and preserve the memory of our heroic soldiers during wartime by showing where they were and what they did during their military service. The best way to accomplish this is by accessing personnel records like unit rosters, morning reports, and medical records which are not available online but rather at the National Archives.
