This database is an index to newspaper articles from the Duluth News Tribune (DNT) or the Duluth Herald (DH) on some of the military personnel from the Duluth area who were killed or captured during World War II and the Korean War. During the war years it was maintained as a card file by Reference staff at the library.
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.
