These lists of the Bowdoinham members of the Armed Forces came from the Bicentennial Booklet:
Members Of The Armed Forces From Bowdoinham, Maine
And Their Rank At The Close Of World War I- 1919
Due to the fact there was not a list of the men who served with the Armed Forces in W.W. I, this list was taken from the Roster of Maine in the Military Service of the United States and Allies, World War 1917-1919. Also, with the help of my father, William Maloon, to my knowledge this list is complete.
