The National Archives and Records Administration has announced the digitization of World War II casualty lists for the U.S. Army and Army Air Force, Navy, Marine Corps, and Coast Guard, produced in 1946 by the Department of War and the Department of the Navy. The volumes are arranged by state and then broken down by county. This will be a valuable resource for World War II researchers. To access these lists, go to the Archival Research Catalog at http://www.archives.gov/research/arc/. In the search box, type in the keywords: world war II honor list dead. This will bring up entries for each state. If you want to limit by a state, add the state name to your keyword search. Click on the title you are interested in and then choose the tab that says “Digital Copies.” This will bring up the digital images.
