MyHeritage is offering free access to its military records- 69.6 million from around the world including draft, enlistment, and service records, pension records, and other military documents. These collections contain valuable information about men and women who served and their families. Military records can contain birth and death dates, names and addresses of family members, and details about the soldier’s service. In some cases, they can provide details not found in other types of records, such as notes on physical characteristics like height, weight, and eye color.

 

The free access begins on May 26 and ends on June 1. They did not list a time zone so presume central daylight time.
