Blogging the Blog – 8

I have added a new category, Searings in the Military.  The purpose is to identify and honor those Searings who have served in the military services of the United States or other countries as appropriate.  There is a lot of information available on the internet, but I welcome submissions, comments, or other information that we can use in this topic.  I decided to lead off with Jack Edward Searing, the only Searing to appear on the wall of the Vietnam Memorial in Washington, DC., and thus, the only Searing killed in that conflict.  Maybe this carries special meaning for me because I served during these years, although not in a combat role. I would like to add as many Searings as possible to this category.  Obviously there may be some overlap, as one entry in Notable Searings also qualifies in the military category, although in a much older conflict!

Again I put out a call for Searings interested in doing and sharing information on genealogy and the categories listed……Dan
