Bio and Links
Bio Photo Having been doing genealogy since the late 1970s and essentially full-time for the last 4 years, my objective is to provide well sourced facts on any memorials I manage. Thus, the viewer can rest assured they are being provided accurate information.

Since discovering, I have been in awe at how much has been contributed that has been of help to me. My goal is to return the favor.

All photos posted under my name on Find A Grave are protected by copyright. Any use without my express permission is prohibited. That includes posting pictures to other web sites!

In an effort to assist Tom Brocher in his quest to have photos of all the sites in Golden Gate National Cemetery, as of June 30, 2014, photos are posted to all the memorials for those interred in Section R.

Although most of the burials in Section R are from 1950 to 1953, I am humbled to have identified:
2 servicemen who died while in captivity when the 31st Infantry Regiment was surrendered as part of the Bataan Defense Force on April 9, 1942,
1 serviceman who died in the raid on Ploesti,
1 serviceman who died in the Battle of the Bulge,
2 servicemen killed in action defending Clark Field,
1 naval aviator killed in action at Guadalcanal,
3 serviceman killed in action in World War II,
183 servicemen who were killed in action in Korea,
1 serviceman who died while held as a POW in North Korea,
40 serviceman who either died of their wounds or as non-hostile deaths in Korea,
14 servicemen killed in action in Vietnam,
3 non-hostile death of servicemen in Vietnam, and
1 serviceman killed in action in Afghanistan.

All of these men who made the ultimate sacrifice in the service of their country are included in my "Ultimate Sacrifice" virtual cemetery. A biography is included for each serviceman.

Ruiz Update
Thanks for staying in touch.

My folks built the first house that was over in Windsor Porte in 1971, then in '77 built a house out on the bayou, by the now, St. Martin school complex. It is a small world.

Hi Kathleen,
Busy working away still, great job!

When a person appears in a cemetery and later moved we still leave a memorial in the original cemetery but put a note on it so someone else thru whatever means does not come along and make another memorial. I have put your note on the memorial in St. Roch Cem1 and if you could make a new memorial in St. Roch Cem 2 and shoot me the memorial number I can put the memorial number on this memorial to lead them to yours.

Thanks so much

Hi Mike and Bushy,

Would you please be so kind to move Dorothy and remove the photos from her memorial?

She was moved on May 18, 1967 to be with her husband in

St Roch Cemetery #2
Court of Our Lady Queen of Angels Mausoleum #1
Right Side Covered Patio
Vault 48-B

I'll get photos when Von and I are in New Orleans again this June. Thanks!

Ducoing Car Accident
That is such a tragic story about the car accident near Bakersfield. It happened in 1945 after the war. Do you think this serviceman was hitchhiking and they picked him up and he too was killed?
