NEAGS is currently working on a WWII Veteran Book for Etowah County. If you have someone that served in WWII and lived or registered in Etowah County, we would love to include them in this book.
Please complete the form (button below) and send a copy of the veteran’s discharge to be eligible. If killed or missing in action, please supply any information you have.
If the veteran served in the veteran served in the Navy, please include ships served on, theater, battles and serial number as these are not always on discharge papers.
The above information plus more is available on the form.
Be sure to come see us at our table on Saturday, April 18th, at the Swap Meet.
