Bio and Links
Bio Photo Nearly all of the memorials I have entered and flowers left are somehow related to our family, if you happen to be related would love to hear from you.

I am currently working on trying to locate the final resting place of all the men who were part of the First Special Service Force, aka Devil's Brigade or Black Devils. In July 2013, the Congressional Gold Medal was awarded, collectively, to the First Special Service Force, in recognition of its superior service during World War II. Presentation of the Congressional Gold Medal took place February 3, 2015 in Washington D.C.
My father-in-law, C.W. "Tiny" Beacon served in this elite unit.

Most memorials I have created in CT cemeteries are not family and happy to transfer to family or anyone who wishes to take care of memorial.

I am so sorry. I do apologize for the inconvenience. I was simply an accident. I occassionally make a mistake and not realize it till after the fact. I am glad you brought this to my attention. I deleted the extra one and moved the picture.

Re: G Gonzales
I take pictures for the requestor and never mind if they use the pictures. Please feel free to use it for your project.

I did remove the second picture. I apologize; it was the first time I have ever uploaded pictures through the findagrave app on my phone.
