Collecting Unit Rosters

Many veterans who served in prior wars deeply regret that they failed to collect the names and hometowns of the men and women they served with. These contacts are invaluable in later years to substantiate injuries, medal eligibility, historical information or form unit associations for reunions.

Military personnel on active duty today should begin immediately to collect the names, addresses or hometowns of the men and women in their unit. Unit rosters can be collected simply by asking unit members to complete Form AMW-212. Completed forms can be mailed home for safekeeping or mailed to The American War Library for permanent preservation.
