The Dearborn Memorial Project began in 2010, when Lisa Lark  began researching the Vietnam fallen from her hometown of Dearborn, MI. Since then, we have focused on researching and remembering the men and women who  have sacrificed their lives for their country.


Our goal is to use public and historical resources, first-person recollections, and contemporary media sources to tell the stories of the men and women lost in America's wars.


Since 2010, we have performed historical research on more than 500 service members and created more than 200 biographies.​
