SARATOGA SPRINGS  When 28,969 New York National Guard soldiers
mobilized in the fall of 1940 as the United States prepared for war,
clerks filled out six-by-four inch cards on each individual.

Now, thanks to a team of 15 volunteers, those records  listing names,
serial number, home and unit, and later annotated with hand-written
notes on whether or not the soldier was killed or wounded  are
available online from the New York State Military Museum.
