Catherine Beckman
Monument for Jan 1945 Belgium
Dear Vrinparadise,

My name is Catherine Beckman, I am the niece of pvt Robert George Beckman of the 505 airborne who is buried at Henri-Chapelle in Belgium.

Last June 2014 you posted two photos, a tall monument at the edge of a forest with a stone at its base. On the stone (your second photo) the names of soldiers who died alongside my uncle are listed. I found it when I revisited my uncles Find-a-grave monument.

Where is the exact location of this monument with the stone at its base? And could you tell me its history and the history of the virtual cemetery you created for this small group of soldiers who appeared to have died together though some were returned to the states.)

Pvt Robert G Beckman's two surviving brothers and one sister are very senior in their years but would love any information you could share with me. Please contact me via email

Catherine Beckman

Ps I recognize the names because they are referenced in col Spencer F Wurst's book, "Descending from the Clouds."

Just discovered the Find A Grave website and was surprised to see a photo of my relative, can you tell me where you got this picture? do you have any other pictures of him or any information about him?

RE: Thank you.
You are very welcome for the message. If you haven't already found family here in the States of your two soldiers, I'd be more than willing to help do so although I may not be successful. If you want me to try, send me an email with their names in the subject line and as much information as you may their Army Serial Number and full name at the least. Take care.

RE: Thank you.
Hi, Yes, Frits did a lot of photographing various markers at many cemeteries around where he lived and where he travelled. I first "met" him when he was looking for family of one of his adopted soldiers. He was a great "friend" even though we had never met in person as we live thousands of miles apart. Such a shock to wake up one morning and read that he had passed. Best regards to you from Washington State, USA

Thank you.
Thank you very much for leaving such a beautiful photo on Frits' memorial page. He was a wonderful person and lost to soon.
