We are working as quickly as possible to get all of the information in for each individual. Due to the website being hacked several times, we are uploading information from our 2001 database backup which is creating a very slow process. Currently information is in through the last names A-SAVINSKI and U-Z. We expect to have everyone's full information in by mid-August, sorry for the delay. Check here for progress updates. Thank you for your patience. For those of you interested in family history, we will be loading family data sheets and additional resources once the basic information is completed for each sailor.

Note: I have been asked many times why these two brothers are listed with different home states. To date, I have no firm answer. Some have told me the state is determined by place of enlistment, others have told me the state is their home state as of December 1941. Still others have said it's the next of kin state. ~N. Nease
