New Military Record for David W. O'Donnell





I had a surprise today when I was looking at my grandfather's page on my tree in Ancestry. A hint popped up. It was from a recent added collection, US Headstone Applications for Military Veterans- 1925-1963.

This has so much information. A lot more than the record I received from the VA way back. I love all the check marks and notes in red. This was a real working document. I love that it says (in red) that he also served as a cook, did not know that. And that is my Aunt Betty's husband that did the application for my grandmother. With more information, gives me an address for them in June of 1952.
