10th Mountain Division World War II Database.

In 1998, several 10th Mountain veterans agreed to work on a Database that would provide information on every man who served with the WWII 10th Mountain Division. Accomplishing this herculean task took five years and donations of over $40,000.   The team spent countless hours in the National Archives in St. Louis and the 10th Mountain Division Resource Center in Denver and even more hours reading Morning Reports completed during WWII by every company in the 10th Mountain Division and entering the names and information in database.

The  committee of ten worked under the chairmanship of John Imbrie (85-C) with  Ben Bush (85-K), John Duffy (86-HQ-2), Philip A. Lunday (126-D), Maurice Murphy (85-G), Richard Westin (85-A), Bill Gall (616-HQ), Marty Daneman (85-HQ-2), Art Marton (605-HQ), and Barbara Imbrie. 

The result is a Database of 32,213 records of men who served with the “Mountain Troops” from 1941-1945. While the entire Database is not available online, you can go to the link to discover a soldier’s Regiment or Battalion with which he served.The most important achievement of the Association’s Database project has been to obtain precise information on each of 999 men now listed in our Roll of Honor, including the date and place of each trooper’s death and the unit in which he was serving when killed.
