|Bio and Links|
I'm from Minneapolis, MN and have lived in this area all my life. I'm a proud veteran and spent 3 years in the army and I served two tours of duty in Viet Nam, (late 1969-1972.) I was wounded twice. I was assigned to The First Cavalry Division and was in the infantry and then a combat engineer & operated a bulldozer & later I was assigned to aviation and was a crew chief/door gunner on a UH-1 Huey helicopter. I'm a recipient of the Bronze Star, two Purple Hearts, two Air Medals, two Commendation Medals, Good Conduct Medal, Combat Infantryman Badge, Aircraft Crewman Wings, & a Marksman Rifle Medal. |
I'm a former local truck driver of 35 years and a former part time fire photographer for seven years. I was forced to retire in 2004 due to back problems. Now I spend time listing interments. I'm registered here as a photo volunteer. I fill the photo requests for Fort Snelling National Cemetery. If you see ANY FT. Snelling memorials with a mistake or missing plots & sections or need a spouse/parents links added please let me know and I will get it corrected or updated.
I do appreciate you visiting Aaron's memorial and for all of your kind words. Thank you so much. It has helped a lot with the passing of my beloved Aaron. Aaron was a blessing and I miss him so much.
If you see anything that I have submitted that needs correction, please let me know. I will be happy to correct it.

|rosie mcnaughton||Hi friend Steve,|
I'm sorry I'm so late checking in. I've been tied up and last night I couldn't get anything done here. I saved the information you put by your photo about Fort Snelling. I'm always so grateful for all you've done for me and for what you continue to do out there.
I wanted to let you know I've been thinking of you today. I know Aaron would be so proud of his wonderful dad. God bless you.

Thank You, Steve for the wonderful job You did taking and posting Martha Unger's tombstone photo. It looks great and is so easy to read! That's very kind of You to volunteer Your free time helping other Find A Grave members.
Thank You, also, for sharing all those wonderful photos, family stories and newspaper article about Your beloved teenage son, Aaron, who was very loving and enjoyed spending time with His parents. I especially enjoyed reading all about Aaron and the fun family outings, that He shared with You and Your wife.
My thoughts and prayers go out to You and Your wife!
