Find Ancestors Through War Records

I saw this headline on Yahoo today and was immediately fascinated. "U.S. War Records Go Online"

"On Thursday, Ancestry.com unveils more than 90 million U.S. war records from the first English settlement at Jamestown in 1607 through the Vietnam War's end in 1975. The site also has the names of 3.5 million U.S. soldiers killed in action, including 2,000 who died in Iraq."

And it's free public access until the D-day anniversary on June 6th. Just click here you might have to give your name and email address but that is all. Then you can type in family names and they will find out info about them and I even saw a photo of my great grand father's draft card.
It's fascinating. Check it out!!
