Military Service Cards, ca. 1878-1975

In 1957, the scope was broadened to encompass all Utah veterans, and this collection includes sets of index cards extracting records from the Spanish-American War through Vietnam, though cards for Korean and Vietnam are not comprehensive. Veterans may be found in more than one card set.
