RE: Sgt Johnny James Rose Jr
Hello Kathleen,

I am truly sorry to hear about your husband. I know it was and still is hard on you. I know several people who keep the cremains of their spouses. However, I also understand the concerns of your children to have him placed where they can visit. The decision to place him at a National Cemetery would serve a couple of purposes. For future generations that may have an interest in their genealogy, they would have a place to visit.

The bigger concern however is more immediate. As a veteran you can have his remains placed at a national cemetery where the location would be maintained in perpetual care. As the spouse of a veteran, upon your passing you can also have your cremains placed next to him to rest forever. I am not telling you what to do, that is a decision only you can make.

If you should decide to place his remains at a national cemetery, they can help in selecting the location and obtain the name plaque. You would need a copy of his DD 214 (which can be obtained from the VA if you don't already have his copy). You can order it online by going to the following site:

To order a name plaque you can go to the following site:

As for Johnny Rose, his son can order it and have it sent to Greenwood for placing on his grave. That is assuming he can be found and wishes to do so. As I mentioned in my previous text, I believe all veterans should have at least a name plaque.

I hope this answered your questions. If not, let me know.

Joe

Johnny Rose
Kathleen,

I took a photo of the grave site for Johnny Rose. I read your comments. Apparently he was killed in Vietnam, yet there is no memorial stone for him. He is the only person buried in that tomb (according to cemetery records).

Your cousin Verna can still request a marker from the VA to be placed on the grave. Personally I believe any veteran, particularly one who was KIA, should be remembered.

Kathleen,

You're very welcome. I am glad I could help with you obtaining photos of your aunts.

I included photos for all the memorials of the people interred at that site.
