World War II Records...

Ancestry.com has allowed temporary (May 20-30) free access to the World War II military records on their site: http://landing.ancestry.com/military/collections.aspx?html=main You will have to register to view any of the records.

Coverage is not 100% complete, I could find my father-in-law and his uncle, but could not find my own father or my great-uncle. But remember, many of the U.S. military service records from this time period were destroyed in a fire in the 1970s.

Enjoy them while you can!
