|Bio and Links|
I am Bob, living at the Armed Forces Retirement Home, Gulfport, Mississippi. I only use my electric bicycle and public transportation. I retired from the United States Navy on Friday May 13, 1977. I have always thought of Friday the 13th as my lucky day, and it still is. I am 75 years old. |
I grant permission to use my photographs in all respectful means.
I add interments when I find them, if they are from your family, I want to transfer them to you because you have more information than I do.
If you are maintaining a section of military information elsewhere, I want you to maintain the memorial sites that I posted too. Again you have more info than I do.
I am also happy to say that I have photographed every grave site at the US Soldiers' and Airmen's Home National Cemetery (up through October 2010) and the Battleground National Cemetery both in Washington, D.C.I have also Posted every grave site at St. Elizabeth's Hospital (West Campus).
I have also photographed the headstones at the Kanchanaburi War Memorial Cemetery Thailand (the POW Cemetery from the Thai Burma Railroad, Bridge on the River Kwai fame).
I have photographed all of the headstones at Chungkai War Cemetery, another POW cemetery from the Thai Burma Railroad, Bridge on the River Kwai fame, also.
In December 2012, I just completed photographing all of the headstones at Labuan War Cemetery, Malaysia; except for Section R where I missed some.
In January 2013, I just completed photographing all of the headstones at Clark Cemetery, Philippines and have posted them.
One day I will be honored by my name being included on the Fallen Find-A-Grave Contributiors Memorial.
I am also a War Graves contributor.

Certainly. That would be great. I will be down there again in November and will try to keep adding material with future trips. Thanks for doing this.

I have been a family historian for 30+ years and only in recent years realised my maternal Nan's cousin lost his life in Palestine during WWII. I doubt I shall have the opportunity to visit the grave, so I am thankful to you for photographing and posting on this website. I shall make a contact with a direct descendant to make him aware of this site, in case he hasn't found you already. In the meantime, many thanks for honouring Frank Berry 6020003 5th Battalion Suffolk Regiment who lost his life on 26th December 1944.

Not sure what correction I sent or when I sent it! My aunt Odie Strangi Swetman is buried in Southern Memorial Cemetery in Biloxi.
