Bio and Links
Bio Photo Hello I'm John T. Griffith, born in Oceanside California, a Viet Nam War US Army MP Veteran and a former CHP Officer. In September 2002, I assisted the National Archives Center, Missouri, in replacing lost and destroyed US Army files. It was during that research project I discovered Find A Grave, wanted to be a part of it's concept and became a member. I have always had a passion for history and the people who have lived it. People in everyday life who through the needs and demands of their times shaped the world. I believe each day is a gift and the best part of any day is that day. I'm also a professional musician, still performing and haved shared the stage with many named artists. In addition, I'm a vintage guitar expert have contributed, plus co-wrote for many vintage guitar books and articles in Vintage Guitar magazine about the subject. Plus a photographer, writer and historian, for the San Diego Reader. I will gladly transfer any of my bios to relatives or folks with a concerned interest. I, my wife Mary and our Dachshund "Timmy", reside in Vista, California. Thanks and best regards, John

Good Man!
I salute you for what you do.
I visit the site of Darwin K. Kyle (MOH-Korea) in West Virginia and am looking for NOK of this Brave Soldier. I have requested an upgrade of his headstone. It should reflect his MOH status.

Thank you for your hard work and doing such a great job with so many of the celebrities. It was nice surfing through them and finding some of my old friends, and some that I had so admired in my youth. Thank you.

Peter James Bracken
Thanks for your biography of Peter Bracken (Find A Grave Memorial # 2875), engineer of the Texas in the "Great Locomotive Chase." He was my great great grandfather.

You might enjoy the Andrews Raiders virtual cemetery created by John S Sims (member 47168005). I certainly have enjoyed browsing your virtual cemeteries, especially the animal one. It got me to thinking that maybe I can find enough data about Buddy, "the first seeing eye dog," to make him an entry. I know he died at the side of his master/partner, Morris Frank, who was a distant cousin--of mine, not Buddy's.
