Lost Trails

As we move through our careers, we serve with hundreds of fellow engineers, make friends and lose touch. If you want to find someone you served with at some point, or you need information on certain people, we may be able to put you in touch. We have an informal network of people and associations that may be able to help you. We can also point you towards several official archives and databank. We can provide instructions as to how to attain service records from government and other sources.

Other places to look are listed on our organizations listed on our Associated Organizations page.  If you cannot make contact there, our Lost Trails feature might help.
