Biographies of our Fallen To date 146 soldiers and airmen have been preliminarily confirmed for inclusion on the memorial. Some 307 suggested and or discovered names still require significant research that may be eventually included on the KYNG Memorial. Sixteen names have been excluded because they did not meet the criteria.

These numbers reflect only Kentucky National Guard members who died while in the line of duty from March 19, 1912 to present.

March 19, 1912 is the date that Kentucky adopted the federal legislation known as the Dick Act. One of the changes it mandated was a name change from Kentucky State Guard to the Kentucky National Guard.
