They Give Gallant & Meritorious Service.

There is little to say about this page as it will speak for it self. About all I can add is there will be some added information on some of this men. There were hundreds of thousands of men who give ( Gallant and Meritorious ) service in the history of the many wars we have been through. That being so it would be imposable to put all their names on this one page let along ten pages. This being the case, I will list some where around 500, names. I will try to list these names by year and war if I can. As there will be so many names and more then likely no order to them I would do a ( Name Search.) it will make it easier to find your ancestor.

Note. Those of you who find a ancestor on this list, and would like to know if there is more information on him can find my address in my profile, be glad to hear from you, please note all information will be military info, unless I become real lucky.
