Moro, Oregon –The Sherman County Historical Museum offers a collaborative project for volunteers interested in Sherman County’s World War II veterans.
Volunteers – including students seeking community service hours – are invited to study the records and stories of WWII veterans in the Museum collections and exhibits, and interview veterans with a goal to enroll them in the WWII Registry of Remembrances. The Registry is managed by the National WWII Memorial in Washington, D.C. www.wwiimemorial.com/default.asp?page=registry.asp.
Resources at the Museum include rosters, newspaper articles, published and unpublished veterans’ stories, and photographs.
On-line resources include Oregon WWII Casualties: Navy, Marine and Coast Guard by veteran’s name and city at http://www.archives.gov/research/arc/ww2/navy-casualties/oregon.html and Army and Army Air Force by county (13 from Sherman County) at http://www.archives.gov/research/arc/ww2/army-casualties/oregon.html with an explanation of abbreviations in Foreword.
