Introduction
To date 146 soldiers and airmen have been preliminarily confirmed for inclusion on the memorial. Some 307 suggested and or discovered names still require significant research that may be eventually included on the KYNG Memorial. Sixteen names have been excluded because they did not meet the criteria. These numbers reflect only Kentucky National Guard members who died while in the line of duty from March 19, 1912 to present. March 19, 1912 is the date that Kentucky adopted the federal legislation known as the Dick Act. One of the changes it mandated was a name change from Kentucky State Guard to the Kentucky  National Guard. The Dick Act mandated that each state’s guard organization organize, equip and train to U.S. Army standards. It also made the Guard available to the President of the United States in times of war or national emergency in addition to its traditional role in support of the governor as Commander-in-Chief. The Kentucky Guard has been officially recognized since statehood and Isaac Shelby’s signature of the militia act on June 24
th
 1792. No matter the name, its mission to protect the lives and  property of the citizens of Kentucky has not changed since Daniel Boone came through the Cumberland Gap. Over the years it has also has been known as the Kentucky National Legion and the Kentucky State Guard. Unfortunately, military service in support of the Commonwealth or the nation, across Kentucky or around the world is often dangerous and difficult and requires sacrifices by those in uniform and the families they leave behind to serve. What follows are photos and biographies based on the information gathered so far for those who have been preliminarily confirmed for inclusion on the Kentucky National Guard Memorial. ii
