Military Service Notes Column Index - Search

During World War II the South Bend Tribune began a short column entitled "Service Notes." The column gave information about St. Joseph County citizens who were being drafted, entering the service, being promoted or sent to different locations. The Service Notes database covers the period from 1941 through 1979, including World War II, the Korean War and the Vietnam War. Citations in the Tribune Notes field refer to items that can be retrieved from microfilm while the Notes File field refers to clippings on cards in Local & Family History.
