WWII Veterans Database

When Japan bombed Pearl Harbor on December 7th 1941, the United States was drawn into the second World War. Over the next four years this event touched nearly every family in the country. Patriotism ran high, and men and women joined or were drafted into military service in great numbers.

This resource is a listing of nearly 5,300 individuals from Iowa's Story County who stepped forward to fight for freedom. Thanks to local volunteers and a State of Iowa grant from the Historical Resource Development Program (HRDP), four different sources were combined to provide this information. It is hoped that sharing this material will allow the sacrifices of these brave men, women and their families to be remembered.
