The Roll of Honor Foundation is a nonprofit charity with the mission of honoring the military service of the men and women of America’s Armed Forces, educating the public about their legacy and encouraging public service among the next generation.

The Foundation provides the Roll of Honor -- an online registry of U.S. servicepersons -- which allows former military members and their families to display their military experience, records of achievement and photos in a digital visual biography.

Find Your World War Ancestor

In partnership with the United States World War One Centennial Commission, the World War I Roll of Honor features profiles of many of the more than 4 million American servicepersons who responded to the call of “Over There” in support of the war-weary Allies and helped achieve victory in "The War That Changed the World."

We invite you to search for and add your ancestors, let us know of any updates or corrections, and help us make the Roll of Honor the most complete collection of the profiles, photos and other information in tribute to World War I U.S. servicepersons.
