Incorrect Photo
Hello, I have been on several websites honoring veterans (together we serve, find a grave etc) and have found this incorrect photo listed under my father's name. How did this happen and how do I correct it? Thank you, Shellie

RE: Cpt Bill Pete Pfeifer
There is a lot of information to read through and you have a long list - don't worry about it.

Two items:
First - your edit:
Prefix:
1LT

will be declined as his stone has Captain as his rank.

Second - your flower/note is incorrect as to the cause of death:

Died in a training accident while parachuting. His main did not open and his reserve became entangled.
- Billy M. Brown

He died from a rare cancer at Walter Reed Hospital.

RE: O'Connor, Mortimer Lenane
Thanks for the additional information - unfortunately, this family tree has major errors. The dates of death for Richard and Theresa are incorrect. Richard never served in the military although four of his sons did. I found Richard's obituary in the New York Times which listed the correct date and place of death as well as the cemetery in which he is interred.

Therefore, as the tree has major errors I will need to verify any information from it before I add it to memorials for the O'Connor family.

Thank you for your help.

Thanks for your note. I have linked him to his parents. His grandfather, Richard, was from Ireland and became a New York City Police Inspector. Four of Richard's sons were USMA graduates and his daughter married a USMA graduate. I have requested links for all. Two of Mort's uncles are interred in the USMA Post Cemetery.

Vietnam research
Another good source would be databases at the public library. If you have a city AND county library - check both. Sometimes they split subscriptions. For instance my county library has Newspaperarchive while my city library has GenealogyBank.

You can usually log on with your library card number and pin. Go to Databases.

Look for GenealogyBank; Newspapers.com and Newspaperarchive.com; New York Times (historical); Newsbank.

You can use these databases to look up articles regarding Vietnam casualties. Sometimes there are more current news articles regarding the remains of MIA or KIA personnel in the 1980s and after.

Some of these articles do have photographs. You might be able to contact the newspaper to see if the original photograph is still in their archives to obtain a copy.

Google has also scanned many newspapers and you can search them here:

https://news.google.com/newspapers

Search engines are also helpful as sometimes family members post information on line or obituaries of parents mention service members who died in Vietnam.

Vietnam and USMA Post Cemetery
If you have photo requests available could you request photos for the individuals for which you are submitting edits? There are several volunteers who photograph requests at the post cemetery.

I have submitted photo requests for several of the memorial pages you have sent edits for, but I am now out of photo requests.

Thanks for your help.

I meant no harm in posting his accomplishments. I was excited to see this for him. I just wanted to honor my cousin. I deleted what you requested.

RE: Leslie Allan Davis
Nice to hear from you, Billy. I am very surprised he did not receive a purple heart for his injuries during the Vietnam War. He stayed with us before deploying to Vietnam with his friend named Wayne. Leslie's maternal grandmother and my maternal grandmother were sisters. My mom and his mom-1st cousins. I visited Morea and Gene (and kids) in Odessa a few times with my parents, also they would come and visit my grandmother and the rest of the family a few times here in California. Gene was a hoot! He would tell stories about him "throwing his voice" and causing laughable situations. Morea was a dear and very close to my late older aunt, Frances. I was so sorry to find out Leslie had passed away. Thank you for updated his memorial.
