Veterans of the “Cold War” — 1945-1995
This is an attempt to identify all of the Olmste(a)ds, direct descendants of Olmste(a)ds, or their spouses that served in the military during the period known as the “Cold War” (1945-1995). This will include all men and women who served in the military post World War II. As this overlaps the Vietnam War era, those that served at that time will be included on the Vietnam page but not on this one. As a tribute to others who have served since 1995, we will list them on another page on this website. If you know of a family member that should be listed here or on other pages, please email us the relevant information.
To access their genealogical record on WikiTree, add the ID to URL, i.e., www.wikitree.com/wiki/(add wikitree ID here). The WikiTree ID is the persons last name at birth followed by a hyphen and a number. If a Wiki profile has not yet been created, just WT will appear in the field in the chart below. You are welcome to edit existing Wiki profiles or add new ones. Wiki profiles often contain photos and biographical information.
Find-a-Grave Memorials often include photos of cemetery monuments, personal photos, obituaries, and other information about an individual (including links to family members also on FAG) in addition to the cemetery name and location. To access a memorial on, write down the number and then on the right side of the Find-a-Grave home page click on “Search 162 Million Graves” and then insert the number in the field marked “Memorial #” leaving the other fields blank, and hit “search.” Start by clicking this link to Find-a-Grave. If we have not yet found a FAG for an individual, just the # will appear in the chart below.
