Tuesday's Tip - Time for Military Research

Editor's note: Today's post was written by Sandra Gardner-Benward

With V-E Day, Armed Forces Day and Memorial Day in May, Flag Day, D-Day, Battle of the Midway begins and Start of Korean War begins in June, I thought this is a great time to do your military research. It is all about Military right now. Jump in and find your Veterans from whatever war and time frame and learn about their experiences, learn about the war they fought in..............
