I am honored to create memorials for our WW2, Korean, and Vietnam war dead.

I am presently working on creating virtual cemeteries for every US WWII Infantry Division. To my knowledge I am the only contributor to Find A Grave undertaking such a project.

Fleet Admiral Chester W. Nimitz:
"They fought together as brothers in arms; they died together and now they sleep side by side...To them, we have a solemn obligation the obligation to ensure that their sacrifice will help make this a better and safer world in which to live."

***************************

In 2013 I completed a five year project traveling to Hawaii annually from the mainland to photograph headstones for all of our WW2 dead at the National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific (Punchbowl) in Honolulu. I have added over 10,000 photos to memorials at the cemetery. Prior to 2008, few of the memorials had a headstone photo.

pvt Earl J. Keating.
Please delete your memorial of Pvt. Keating. It is a duplicate of my memorial #56761311. Pvt Keating will be laid to rest with his family in St. Joseph Cemetery #1 on May 28, 2016 at which time I will change the cemetery information. Thank you for your cooperation in this matter. Andrea Grega, niece of Pvt. John Klopp, the other soldier found with Pvt. Keating.

RE: Thank you
You are welcome. We hope the panorama view of John's gravesite was what you had in mind. It was the first time we had such a request.

Best wishes for success on your project.

Carmine D. Faella
Jeff,

A friend of mine asked if I could send you the following message:

"Hello sir, saw the entry you made for S/Sgt. Carmine D. Faella, a downed Marine Corps aviator. I wondered where you came upon the photos of the telegram? I had seen the Ebay auction for that telegram and many letters/V-mails but was not able to bid. Are you aware of where that group of ephemera ended up? I work with NGOs who locate MIAs and was very interested in tracking down his group of letters and the telegram. I am a preservationist of items from these remarkable Marines, with an online museum in the works. Thank you for your time. I am 20 years old and have had an extensive interest in the Marine Corps of WWII since middle school.

Sincerely, Dean"
