According to what I read, the area around this church was a Yankee encampment near Fredericksburg for seven months starting in November 1862. I was wondering if this… (Show more)

The list of my Service connected Disabilities shows that one item is COPD (Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease).  However it wasn't always COPD.  Upon my retirement physical from the Air Force, it was listed as something else.

Hi, I've been researching my dad's WWII military service for some time, and recently came across an acknowledgment card for a "special dividend application" from the Veterans Administration in Washington, DC (no other address information); the card was to be kept until a dividend check was received. The card does have a dividend application number… (Show more)

I am trying to order a cemetery plaque for my deceased husband.  I have all the information needed except for enlistment date, which would be on DD-214, which I cannot find.  I am ordering his DD-214, but it will probably take weeks to get here.  Is there any other way I can find out what his enlistment date was?
