Milford Twp Military Honor Roll

Those Who Served In The Armed Forces

The following information, hopefully with few errors, has been gathered.

In the June 7,1917, Roland Record it stated "the Registration Board in Milford Twp announced the registration of eighty-one men and on April 11, 1918, it reported 1,528,924 men in the Army. We suspect that the following list is very much lacking in information of the service of men who might have served in the era before the Second World War. For example, we know that in Sept. of 1918 that Milford Township had 83 lads signed up for the draft. How many of these were called to active duty is unknown.
