Stamford's World War II Service Roll: "A Reconstructed List of Names"



I was delighted to read an article in the Stamford Advocate about efforts of Ron Marcus and Dan Burke who spent four years collecting over 10,000 names of Stamford residents who served in WWII.

The Service Roll was demolished and the individual markers were bulldozed into oblivion. I was aware of the Service and proud to see my dad and relatives on the markers. However they missed my Aunt Adeline who served in the Waves.

Dan Burke is known to our family and he runs the very popular Facebook group If you're really from Stamford (CT) you'd know ....

The UPDATED list is available on Stamford Historical Society Website
And it finally includes my Aunt Adeline
