Free War Records on Ancestry.com

Good news from the Associated Press this morning: "Ancestry.com unveils more than 90 million U.S. war records from the first English settlement at Jamestown in 1607 through the Vietnam War's end in 1975. The site also has the names of 3.5 million U.S. soldiers killed in action, including 2,000 who died in Iraq."

You can access these records for free, including military yearbooks and prisoner-of-war records, until D-Day (June 6). After that you can access them by subscribing to the site.
