Welcome to the WWII Registry!
The memory of America’s World War II generation is preserved within the physical memorial and through the World War II Registry, a listing of Americans who contributed to the war effort in uniform and on the home front. Names in the Registry are forever linked to the memorial’s bronze and granite representations of their sacrifice and achievement.
The WWII Registry combines two distinct databases.
One is official U.S. Government database maintained by the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA). This official database includes names of Americans who are listed on War and Navy Department Killed in Service rosters held by NARA.
The second database—the Registry of Remembrances—is an unofficial compilation of public acknowledgements honoring U.S. citizens who helped to win the Second World War.
