Please check out my WWII virtual cemeteries! |
If you have any photo requests available, please make a few, as at the 20 per week rate, it will take me 10 years to get my 51,000 WWII KIA entries completed.
If you see incorrect entries or duplicates (dups usually from the Findgrave crashmaster)...let me know asap!!! If you would like me to transfer a memorial, I will transfer them.
MY GOAL IS HONOR AS MANY AMERICAN VETS THAT GAVE THEIR LIVES, AS I POSSIBLY CAN, ESPECIALLY WWII, AS IT WAS THE WAR THE CHANGED THE WORLD!!!
ANY WWII KIA'S, YOU MAY COME ACROSS, PLEASE CONTACT ME SO I CAN ADD THEM TO MY VIRTUAL CEMS.

As of today I've completed the listing of all the soldier's and sailor's records I could find for the State of Maryland. Now to move on to another state.... :-)
Just wanted to let you know and also let you know how much I've appreciated all that you've helped me with. :-)
|Wendy Park||Earl O. Hall|
Earl Orine Hall (Memorial # 91300887) is my father's uncle. His tombstone has the wrong dates. His birthday was June 16, 1918 (source WPA birth index and enlistment papers) and his death date was Aug 26, 1944. I'm not sure why the BIRLS death file lists the death date which is found on his tombstone, but the combat log for his battalion describes the event of his death in the entry for Aug 26, 1944.
Thank you for creating this memorial.

Alfonse Gherardi is not in Hibbing's records as being buried there. Even just putting in the surname he is not listed. And I looked under the spelling you have above. There are other Gherardis but none with a death date even close to '44.

This heartwarming article appeared today. PFC Eddington's daughter received a letter he wrote to her almost 70 years ago. She also received his Bronze Star and Purple Heart.

At Veterans Park in Holyoke MA along the Dwight St edge near Chestnut St. Park was just renovated.
|Janice Hollandsworth||RE: Robert J Murray or Murphy|
MURRAY, Robert James, Aviation Radioman 2c, USNR. Wife, Mrs. Anna June Murray, 719 River St., Scranton.
I'd say Murray. This came from another site that has the casualty listings. The casualty lists are all of a sudden not coming up.
Also when I set the search for Robert J Murphy at Ancestry, I get no files for this person.
I've been in Mexico for 3 weeks and will be returning tomorrow until mid-August (was home for a funeral). Please hold off on other transfers until I get back - my email is going to be bad enough as it is. Not sure exactly what you want me to do with them, but I can tell you I won't be working on them while I'm away. Will contact you as soon as I return stateside.
Hi Shane this was part of the 392nd web site.
Knettel rarely talked about the incident, but did tell his son Michael that the air was colder than normal that day and they were flying at a higher altitude than usual. He heard a tremendous noise and then he and Brzostowski just fell from the plane. As his chute deployed, the plane exploded and debris showered down. His parachute was damaged, causing him to descend too fast. He was severely injured; a metal plate had to be placed in his head and a rod in his leg. These injuries pained him until his death at age 47.
