Maine Gave Many is a site dedicated to the memory of the
men of Maine who gave their lives in World War II.
Maine Gave Many is not only a site of remembrance but also
a site of  reference and resource for those researching
information concerning these men of Maine.
The list of names on this site  are acquired from two official
U.S. Government publications, located at the
National
Archives and Records Administration (NARA). The
publications are:
" World War II Honor List of Dead and
Missing Army and Army Air Forces Personnel from:Maine"
,published by the War Department, 1946, and the
"State
Summary of War Casualties from World War II for Navy,
Marine Corps, and Coast Guard Personnel from:Maine "
U.S. Navy , 1946.
Maine Gave Many will be adding the names of these men as
we acquire information about them. In time, we hope to have
information on all, but obviously this is a long term project.
To view both list of names in their entirety now, however,
please click on either of the two above publication titles.
This will bring you directly to the sites.       
Maine Gave Many will be updated at least a few times a
week, with added names and information. Information will be
obtained from many sources, but primarily  consist of facts
obtain in the War Dept. and U.S. Navy Casualties list, as well
as newspaper articles and material from the
