Abstract:

The Virginia World War II Separation Notices collection contains approximately 250,000 notices for soldiers and sailors (Army, Navy, Marine and Coast Guard) who served during World War II, were discharged between 1942 and 1950 (bulk 1944-1946), and indicated on their separation notice that they intended to seek employment in Virginia after their discharge. Military personnel who indicated on their separation notice that they would seek employment in a state other than Virginia after discharge are not included in this collection. The majority of the separation notices are for military personnel who were born and/or raised in Virginia prior to the war and returned to Virginia after discharge. However, this collection does include records for a small number of soldiers and sailors who do not appear to have any direct connection to Virginia other than they indicated that they would seek employment in Virginia after discharge. Many of these records are for officers who appear to have been stationed at the Pentagon and remained in Northern Virginia after discharge. Dean Rusk, United States Secretary of State from 1961 to 1969, is a good example. Rusk was a native of Georgia, was separated from the army at the Pentagon and remained in Virginia after the war. Rusk and others like him are the exception - the bulk of the collection consists of persons born and/or raised in Virginia.

The separation notices include information on the date and place of birth, physical description, race, martial status and civilian occupation of the soldier. Also included is rank, military organization, date of induction or enlistment, place of entry into service, military occupation, battles and campaigns, decorations and citations, wounds received in action, service outside continental United States, prior service, total length of service, and reason for separation. Naval records also list training schools attended and places of service (ships and naval stations). In addition to the separation notices, many army records also contain a separation qualification record documenting the soldier's military and civilian education and occupations. This document may also include the soldier's social security number. A small number of records contain letters from the veteran in reply to a USES form letter offering employment assistance.

The collection includes separation notices for both men and women and all races. Included are records for a number of prominent individuals: United States Senator Harry F Byrd, Jr., journalist Guy R. Friddell, Jr., Virginia Governor Albertis S. Harrison (1962-1966), Virginia Governor Abner Linwood Holton, Jr. (1970-1974), United State Army General and Secretary of State (1947-1949) George Marshall, United States Secretary of State (1961-1969) Dean Rusk, and author William Styron.

The Virginia World War II Separation Notices records are not a complete collection of every Virginian who served in the United State military during World War II and does not include records for soldiers and sailors killed during the war. For information concerning Virginia's World War II dead see: Virginia World War II History Commission, Personal War Service Records of Virginia's War Dead, 1941-1946, accession 24805, state government records collection, LVA and the Virginia Military Dead Database on the LVA web page.
