Melanie Bell:  I have a book called "Men and Women from Garvin County in the Armed Forces During World War II". I am willing to lookup information for queries about people in the book. It has each person listed with a photograph and a short paragraph telling about the person.
(Below link not working- can anyone please help correct?)
Lisa Duncan:.  I would like to be a volunteer for look-ups in Garvin County.  I work during the week, but get off at 3:00 in the afternoon, so I can do some things at the courthouse before it closes.  I also am willing to go to the cemeteries or the library when needed.  Also have a digital camera, in case it is needed to take pictures of tombstones, old schools, or whatever is needed.
