How Do I Participate?
family members wishing to participate should complete
a Service Data Form
and bring one 8 x 10 or smaller photograph of the veteran
(preferably in uniform) to one of the data collection
locations. The photo will then be digitally scanned by
a volunteer and returned while you wait. The database
of service information will be created from the facts
collected on the Service Data Forms. The entire process
should only take a few minutes.
War time veterans, living or deceased, who served in World
War I, World War II, Vietnam, The Persian Gulf War, Iraq
or at any other time. The project is open to veterans
presently residing in the Town of Colonie or who resided
in the Town at the time of the conflict. Men and women
from all military branches of service - Army, Army Air
Corp / Air Force. Navy, Marine Corps, Coast Guard and
Merchant Marine will be documented.
Can I Find A Service Data Form?
Service Data Forms are available here.
If I Do Not Have A Picture?
While we prefer a picture in uniform, any picture of the
veteran can be used in this project. If you do not have
any picture available of the veteran, we can still collect
the information and include the veteran in the project.

Information may be brought to one of two locations:
The Town Clerk's Office in Memorial Town Hall

Appointment is needed. Please call Melissa Shaw at 782-2662.
