Military Service Records

  • WWI
    Alaska’s Legislature passed a 1923 act* to compile a list of all Alaskans who served in the army, navy and marine corps during the Great War. The record included name, age, residence, place and date of entry, branch of service, service record, and date, place and type of discharge.
    The Secretary of Alaska (Secretary of State) printed a list of all bona fide Territory residents who served April 6 1917–November 11 1918, and filed it for public inspection in the Territorial Auditor’s Office. In addition to information listed above, the Secretary’s register lists Alaskans who died while in the service of their country. An Alaska State Archives Employee transcribed the list to a spreadsheet, which is presented here in pd format.

    * May 2, 1923; Laws of Alaska 1933 Chapter 54, Section 3207, page 112; Title 1, Chapter 72: Session of Laws of Alaska 1923.
