Staff members from the Alabama Department of Archives and History (ADAH) created these index cards to documenting the military service of Alabamians during the Korean War. According to the ADAH, staffers extracted details from “clippings, brochures, reference correspondence, photocopies and typescripts of original documents, and various printed materials in the ADAH collections.”
Cards can include details such as name, branch of the military served in, rank, residence/address, event dates (wounded, missing in action, rotation returnee, etc.), sources, source dates, and names of family members/next of kin. Cards may also include some military personnel from the time period who were not necessarily deployed to Korea.
