Honoring Those Who Served

August Henry Genetti (1892-1976)

Served 1917-1919

To celebrate Memorial Day this year I have compiled a list of Genetti descendants who served the United States in World War I, World War II and the Korean War. My goal is to create a special page on our website dedicated to our military family. Unfortunately, I am not able to access records for military personnel serving after the Korean War. So those serving later than the mid-1950’s are not on this list.

Also, the following compilation only includes descendants with the surname of Genetti. I would like to include all of our military descendants who have served our country from 1880 to present and can trace their roots directly to a Genetti ancestor.

If you or a loved one is a Genetti descendant, served in any branch of the military and would like to be listed on our permanent page, please write me through our Contact Page.

In researching this post, I also located a moving tribute to Frank George Genetti (1913-2010) who served in the Navy from 1942 to 1945. Descendant from the Illinois branch of the Genetti family, Frank and his three brothers all served our country during World War II. Frank’s youngest brother, Bernard, is alive and well – thank you so much for your honorable service! We salute you Bernard Genetti on this day of remembrance.
