Bio and Links
Bio Photo 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 73,000 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.

DOG TAG FOUND IN HAWAII
thank you for responding John, I will send you a picture of it and here is the information you requested...

Shane a lady reached out to me she found this 44th BG fliers dog tag on a beach she wants to try to find descendants to give it to any help?
FORREST E. BARTAY
384L0822
It was found on the beach in Hawaii. Sand Island beach park on August 12, 2016.

I did look up his name and I did not see any surviving next of kin, so I just want to have it go to someone and someplace that it will be valued and appreciated. And maybe this dogtag might have a bigger story than meets the eye, so I am also curious but don't know how to look it up.

If you would like me to send it to you, I can surely do that. I would ask if you would kindly share any interested facts that you find so that I can have stories to tell the grandkids.

RE: Charles Steinbach
The Find A Grave volunteers have a very good relationship with the woman who runs the office and the grounds keepers. If she is not talking to a family member she always takes the time to look up our requests. They are all on computer by name. I came in with ten requests this week and she had info on seven. I'll keep Charles Steinbach in my notes and maybe we'll find it someday.

Newspaper article about "FindAGrave"
On Monday, 8 August 2016, the Philadelphia Inquirer newspaper published an excellent story about a FindAGrave volunteer, and others.
I would like to send you a copy. It covers parts of 2 pages, with color photographs.

How can I get this to you?

You were the one who located my first cousin, Gordon F Anderson's grave in Golden Gate National Cemetery. Thank you again.

RE: WWII KIA's
Here is a virtual cemetery for the men who's name is inscribed on the memorial in Mt. Ephraim:
http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=vcsr&GSvcid=651390

One man, James Busey was accidentally added. Actually, his father, Samuel was inscribed on the memorial as he lived in Mt. Ephraim and was the point of contact for his son. Somehow things got mixed up. James was from the Washington D.C. area.

I also wrote and posted stories for several of these men on Facebook:
https://www.facebook.com/jeffvilardo/posts/10207910776239909

and one more that I posted later on:
https://www.facebook.com/jeffvilardo/posts/10208032605845573

I have tried to put together a life story of sorts for each person and post it on Facebook on the anniversary of their death. Still a work in progress.

Regards,
Jeff Vilardo

Anthony Cutrone: location query?

"Hello
You have 1 for Gate Of Heaven in Pennsylvania. Do you mean Gate Of Heaven in Hanover, New Jersey ?. I have been there several times.
Ken"

ShaneO, it's not a memorial that I created but you added the application for the gravestone, but is it the right location, please? Regards, Martin.
