U.S. Military Online Genealogy Records
This is collection of links to United States nationwide military databases and collections. Collections include indexes and digital images to service, pension, draft registration, roster lists, and other military records. 

Also search each state for statewide military databases and collections.

The indexing of records is often an on-going project. Some collection indexes give no indication if they are a partial index or complete. If the name you are researching does not appear in an index, re-check the index at a later time or search for the record in the available original images. Some indexes are handwritten and a part of the image collection.
