My great-uncle, Nicolas Alshuk, served in WWII and died at sea. Some very helpful folks pointed me to ABMC and I have followed thru with them and received a copy of the memorial in the Philipines where his name is listed. It is pretty interesting. Thank you!
I have 2 living great-uncles, Thomas Alshuk and Wasil Alshuk that also served in WWII. How do I go about finding out about their service? I am in the process of contacting them but was hoping there might be some things I could do on-line.
Lastly, my great-aunt (an Alshuk) married Bernard McGoldrick May 1941 (he was 24 yrs old). He served in WWII also. She had a baby on March 19, 1945 (it died after 4 days) and Bernard is listed as "killed in action in Belgium". He was 28 and it has a note "T.4." which I believe is his rank? He is not listed in ABMC. Where might I look to find more information about him? The interesting part of the story is that William Avison Thornton stopped by to see my great-aunt when he returned from the war to talk to her about Bernard. They were married September 1946!
So if anyone has any suggestions on how the best way to research these situations, that would be great!
