Over 16.5 million men and women served in the armed forces during World War II, of whom 291,557 died in battle, 113,842 died from other causes, and 670,846 were wounded.

National WWII Memorial

The introduction to the memorial on the web site says, "The memory of America's World War II generation is preserved within the physical memorial and through the World War II Registry of Remembrances, an individual listing of Americans who contributed to the war effort. Any U.S. citizen who helped win the war, whether a veteran or someone on the home front, is eligible for the Registry." The memorial was dedicated 29 May 2004. Visit their website for more information at http://www.wwiimemorial.com

The WWII Registry combines four databases of the names of Americans who are:

  • Buried in American Battle Monuments Commission (ABMC) overseas military cemeteries.
  • Memorialized on ABMC Tablets of the Missing.
  • Listed on official War and Navy Department Killed in Service rosters now held by the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA).
  • Honored by public enrollment in the Registry of Remembrances.
