Honor Roll: 68 Military Casualties
~ So We Will Never Forget ~


In the course of carrying out their mission to serve and protect our nation, far too many of our cousins in the military -- comprised of Minerd-Minard-Miner-Minor cousins and their spouses -- have made the ultimate sacrifice of giving their lives during wartime and peacetime. We seek on this page to highlight their names and honor their memory so they will never be forgotten.
