Duluth War Casualties: WWI, WWII, Korean War, and Vietnam War
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.
