Fold3® provides convenient access to military records, including the stories, photos, and personal documents of the men and women who served.

The records at Fold3 help you discover and share stories about these everyday heroes, forgotten soldiers, and the families that supported them. On Fold3, you can combine records found on the site with what you have in your own albums and shoeboxes to create an online memorial for someone who served.

Fold3 is perfect for:

  • Historians
  • Genealogists
  • Researchers
  • Enthusiasts
  • Family Historians
  • Teachers
  • Veterans & their families

Why the name Fold3®?
Traditionally, the third fold in some flag-folding ceremonies honors and remembers veterans for their sacrifice in defending their country and promoting peace in the world.
