Dodges Who Fought For Their Country
World War II

Many Dodges have served their country in times of crisis and many have died in that service. We have started two separate sections on our web site. One is for those who have given the Ultimate Sacrifice. The other is for those who served and lived to come home again.

If you have a Dodge in your family who belongs in either of these areas, and would like to send us the information, including a photo if you have one, we would be happy to add them to these pages of honor.

On the land, sea, in the air, and on the homefront, they harkened to their countries call.
