Military Service – No Specific Wartime Period

6,439 military records exist for Goldens that served on U.S. military duty from 1806-1916 per National Archive records that are available via Ancestry.com.

I started outlining some of them below but halted after finding so many. Will try to refocus on Goldens that are interest to me — but am always willing to do a search for your Goldens.
