Re: Have veteran's name only
I accessed the website:www.wwiimemorial.com
and can't find a George Cocke.But if you put in just the last name, several Cocke names will come up.
I know in my own case, that I could not find my relative by putting in the first name, but when I entered just the last, I could easily find him.
I'd check that out first to see if he comes up. If you're lucky, then it could at least give you some direction.
Also, you could try contacting the VA office.If he died during combat, and the family collected a life insurance policy, they should have a file on him.But you may need to know his service number, I'm not sure.
