    Good afternoon.
    I am trying to locate a searchable database that includes all DFC awardees from World War II.
    Does one exist?
    Any help or guidance is appreciated.
    All the best,
    Robert Richardson

    Supposedly this site http://valor.militarytimes.com/home.php
    has over 21,000 DFC citations. Click on Awards on the left side the scroll to DFC on the right side and click it to get the full list.

    There is a search field on the left side of the page which can search by Name, Award and Conflict. I have not played with it to see exactly how you would use it. You probably need to work with it a little.

    It does appear you need to spell out "Distinguished Flying Cross" in the search field and "World War II" for the conflict. You can just enter a last name in the name field. Order is Name, Award, Conflict. There is an "About" section which has some info.
