A member of the Permian Basin Vietnam Veteran's Memorial in Midland, Texas. I am researching all 228 men who died in Vietnam from 30 West Texas Counties. Project includes finding burial sites.|
I am also attempting to locate the final burial places and pictures of all Veterans who died in the Vietnam War. The Vietnam Veteran's Memorial Fund is in the process of building a new education center which will house the photos of all Vietnam casualties. I am involved in this project. If any one has a picture of a Vietnam casualty, please let me know.
I am attempting to add memorial tributes to those Vietnam deaths as I find them at findagrave. I am using data from many sources. One of the best is www.virtualwall.org. This is a copyrighted site. I have been a 10 year contributor and assist them when and where I am asked. I am not on their staff. I have obtained permission to utilize some of their material. That permission, however, is limited and does not give other contributors the permission to copy and use that material without obtaining authorization from www.virtualwall.org.
Other sources includes Department of Defense Form 1330 headstone request information. I do not have actual copies of these requests but do have means to obtain copies from other researchers such at www.virtualwall.org and Robert Sage of Austin, Texas. This information, however, was documented a short time following the death of the service member. There have been instances where a service member was disinterred and moved to another grave site at a later date. Some of the information gives a burial locale and not a specific cemetery. In those instances, the headstone was most often delivered to the Funeral Home, or when delivered to a family member, they made their own arrangements to the set the headstone.
Other sites that I utilize is the Wall Project at www.vvmf.org. This is the actual site of the Wall. Some of the information includes other contributors who have documented information there. I attempt to give credit as I can.
Other sites include www.thewall-usa.com. Finally, I have utilized information from family, friends and acquaintances to document the Vietnam casualty's final resting place. Invaluable is the contribution of the findagrave community. These volunteers have assisted in actually locating and documenting burial sites.
There are occasionally errors and omissions, but I will correct that when I receive creditable information.
If you feel that any of the images/words used on this site infringe on YOUR rights, please contact me via EDIT BUTTON FOR CORRESPONDENCE and I will be more than happy to comply with your request and remove them.

Thanks for the information about where his name is located on the Vietnam memorial wall. I have added it to his memorial. Also added some more information that I found about his military information. Thanks again.

Mr. Brown, I don't want you to think of this as any kind of complaint or criticism because I deeply appreciate all of the work you have done on this family. This woman is my husband's great grandmother. I am trying to help the family "prove" the genealogy for a lineage society. So, here is my problem: the obituary shows that she had two brothers and two sisters. I know this is the correct obit because we found it in the files at the SA public library. We only have three on the Find A Grave website. I have four on my tree, but now feel compelled to go back and "prove" them all. But the biggest question for me is that on the death certificate the parents are listed as William and Tobe, not the people we have all linked her to. This information was given by her daughter, a person I found to be pretty sharp most of her life. You can see my problem proving all of this. My proof documents have conflicting information. I have not yet made the trip to Mullins and whatever county it was in at the time, but have not been able to find william and tobe online either. Any information you have that might help me prove any facts will certainly help.

I am trying to find any living relatives of Warren F. Brown. I am trying to get a picture of him and a short story depicting what Warren was like growing up to put on my blog at www.patrickbieneman.com.

Hello! This is just to let you know that I've added a headstone photo for Kenneth Joe Hammond, #77283456.
Thank you again for all you do to memorialize vets on this site.
Thank you for the notes about Lamoine Sandvig. I do not know where the WALL is but might it be Washington D.C.?

Many small Catholic Churches will have their burials in a larger Church cenetries. Many small churches in Thibodaux bury in St Joseph cemetery for example as they have no cemetery of their own. Some cemeteries are known by more than one name, but I could find no record for this one. Thank you for moving it. It is unfortunate that your record seems to have wiped out the original record which had photos attached. Thank you for your help and for the work you do. My husband was a Vietnam vet and is buried in Arlington National, Lester S. Folensbee.
