There may be errors in the above as stated in the source due to later findings.  The county data was extracted by the government according to where the next of kin contact was located.  

Next the "Summary of War Casualties from World War II for Navy, Marine Corps, and Coast Guard Personnel from Michigan" is being extracted from that source which has a different layout in data and will take longer to do. 

Another List that Includes Navy, Marine, and Coast Guard

If you have any more veteran's who do not show up in this list and have information you would like to contribute so we can add them to the list, please e-mail me. .  We will be adding other branches of the service, also.  If you have an obituary or article that can be added it would be appreciated.
