The Fold3 Honor Wall

Posted by Ancestry.com on November 7, 2013 in Military Records

 

Just in time for Veterans Day, our Fold3 team has launched The Honor Wall, an online memorial for the many millions of men and women who have served in the U.S. armed forces over the past 200+ years.

Family, friends and loved ones will be able to pay homage to their heroes by developing a special page with historical military records, letters, stories, photographs, or any other memorabilia to share more about their veterans life, and their service.

 

If you are a veteran, please add your story directly so we may honor you!

 

As of launch, The Honor Wall has over 20 million personalized online pages already created. The unique virtual memorial will continue to grow and evolve as new pages are contributed by visitors to The Honor Wall, and those already existing are supplemented by additional user content.

The Honor Wall will also serve as a source of education on the lives of U.S. men and women in conflicts and in times of peace, whether serving at home or abroad. This is done via historical records already populated on many of The Honor Wall pages from the National Archives and Record Administration, Fold3, Ancestry.com and TogetherWeServed.com.

Read more about The Honor Wall on the Fold3 Blog, and add a memorial for your veteran at www.fold3.com/wall.

I have already created several military pages for relatives on my Ancestry.com tree. It would be great if:

1) I could easily access those pages (maybe via a link from my family tree home page to a list of Military pages I’ve created?)
2) I could easily share those pages I’ve already created with Fold3 by clicking a share button. I see there is a button to share from Fold3 to Ancestry.com but not the other way around. Otherwise, I’ll have to go hunting through the family pages I already have in order to locate the military family members, the duplicate the work I have already done in creating their pages and linking their records.

Thanks!

I do have info on my father, his brothers from WW2. A cousin who served during Vietnam, but was stationed in Iceland. All have the last name Morris.
Q: is it true that the mormons convert people to theirway, and take away what religion people actually where?

A question, should not offend, that’s how we find answers, in search of truth.

I wonder how well this all works when ones grandparents are from Greece, because country was NOT listed.
