Searching obd-memorial

With OBD-MEMORIAL website getting continuous updates for several years already, I was wondering what records members have found there, how they used the site, what items from their collection were they able to research, etc..

I am looking for inspiration/creativity in my research to potentially get new hits and uncover new stories. I hope members will share here some tricks, special hits and help me (and other) to increase the benefits we get from that archive website.

Personally, I have found the following types of records:
- MIA record
- GPW city memorial book listing KIA
- KIA record
- POW record card from German captivity
- Court-martial conviction record
- Exact burial location, photo of gravestone, photo of bust/memorial erected in hometown

And here are the types of items from my collection that were successfully researched on the site:
- MIA and KIA notice sent to relatives
- POW ID card from German camp
- Temporary Passport of "just released" Gulag convict
- KPSS Member ID of an ex-military man

What else have you found there?
