Electronic file for UDC Cross of Military Service


Recommended Posts

And here it is boys and girls...an electronic, searchable, in numerical order, pdf file that lists the recipients of the United Daughters of the Confederacy Cross of Military Service.

 

Many thanks to all who assisted in this effort...

Also a special thanks to our awesome forum administrators that loaded the pdf file and put the link to it in this thread.

 

This is a work in progress, so if anyone has additional information on recipients of the United Daughters of the Confederacy Cross of Military Service for ANY conflicts, please let me know. I will be collecting this information and making updates as the amount of new data dictates.

 

Enjoy my friends, enjoy...and let me know if you find new info, or any errors.

An update on the process for maintain this info:

 

I keep a master list of all of these entries. When a new entry is submitted, I add it to the master list. When I get 25 new entries, I will republish the list as a pdf and post it on this site. Since the original list was published, I have 17 updates as of 1-14-15.

 

Thanks to everyone for your assistance in this effort.
