RE: Find A Grave Memorial# 107794230
Yeah maybe....Nat Archives have him as La Ponsie....put in a grave photo request and put in the notes you believe the death date is burial date so they don't go to some sextant to just tell them its not it because its 1948...if I had a $100 bill for everyone of them lately.

S/Sgt Edward Sullivan
You have requested that photos be taken of his headstone, but on review there are pictures already there. I'm going up to the cemetery right now and will take the pictures. Let me know of you want the new ones.
Thanks, Richard Bissell

I'm sorry I got two pictures of his tombstone
on, but, I can't seem to be able to erase.
Hopefully you will be able to.
Thanks, Pauline

Bill Snow
Thank you so much Mr. Dowdy for adding the biographical sketch I wrote about my family member Bill Snow to his memorial. Also thank for creating his memorial so that no one ever forgets the sacrifice he and every other soldier has made for the freedom we enjoy today.

God bless you and yours,
Benae Williams Hogan
