Tulsa County's fighting men numbered in the thousands.  Even more men and women took up posts at home in their communities as the home front guards and support operations.  The excellent book Tulsa County in the World War by the Tulsa Historical Society in 1919 has a good description of the war and the roles played by Tulsa County citizens and soldiers.  By clicking on the cover page above you can read the book.  Be sure to check out the index in the back for thousands of soldiers and home guard names.  We have extracted as many names as we could identify for those who answered the call to military service from the Southwest Tulsa area.

 In the list below you will find names from West Tulsa, Garden City and Red Fork.   There will be many others from the westside of Tulsa who served but did not indicate their addresses on the military cards sent home.  At the time of World War I many of the people picked up their mail at companies or post office boxes.  Some picked it up at neighbors and a few picked their mail up at the Tulsa Police Department or Tulsa Fire Department.  Others used the YMCA address for their mail.  If you take time to read the book and find information that ties to a person from Southwest Tulsa please contact us and we will make the changes.
