Excellent resource, Eddie. Thanks for the link.
Those records are NOT just for military service! The information to be found in U S Military records, in particular, pension applications from early wars (Rev War, 1812) shouldn't be underestimated. I've found a couple Rev War pension applications for ancestors which included affidavits deposed by the applicant wherein he stated his birth date, birth place, military service, and places of residence. I found no other records with that valuable info. REALLY good stuff.
