This is an index to newspaper articles from the Duluth News Tribune (DNT) and the Duluth Herald (DH) on some of the military personnel from the Duluth area who were killed or captured during World war I, World War II, the Korean War, and the Vietnam War.
Each entry may include name, address, rank, service branch, date of incident (killed, captured, etc.), and a brief description of the incident. Articles may be about a soldier killed, captured, awarded a medal, being released from prison camp, or the body being returned for burial.
If you're not sure of the spelling of a name, try typing the first few letters of the name.
For example, if you type "carl" in the last name box you'll get both "Carlson" and "Carlsen." To get a list of all records, leave all fields blank and click on "Search."
