American War Memorials Overseas uses Regional Volunteers and Independent Researchers to help achieve our objectives.  If you are interested in military history or if you live or travel extensively overseas, please consider a volunteer position with us.  

Regional Volunteers
American War Memorials Overseas uses Regional Volunteers to help carry out several important functions:

  • Monitoring and reporting on the condition of war memorials
  • Researching and surveying war memorials
  • Working with others in their area to preserve war memorial sites

Regional Volunteers generally live or travel extensively in an area overseas where American forces fought.

Independent Researchers
American War Memorials Overseas uses Independent Researchers to research War Memorial history:

  • Search local records to determine why a memorial was erected, who owns it, when it was dedicated, who cares for it
  • Research the service records of Americans honored on overseas memorials or buried in isolated gravesites
  • Research the unit records of American units honored on overseas memorials

Independent Researchers have a passion for military history, and experience researching various government and private archives.
