Victor: Per your request I added photo of LCpl Smith's memorial. As info, I had no problem with original photo displaying on Find A Grave. Thanks for you work with Find A Grave, especially your dedication to fallen veterans.

NAVY COMMENDATION MEDAL
What can I say but-DUH.
I've only photographed 5,000 Mil stones, shoudda figured that one out.
I posted a new photo for Paul David Myers, 70044869. So...What do you think "NCM" on the stone means.
Non Combat Mortality ?????
|Peggy Stockton Davis||RE: HM2 William Ray Broad|
You are welcome, glad I found it on the first try! I love photographing the military stones! He deserves a building named for him, thanks for the info.
|Sue Ann Harfst||Fred Smart|
I sent you a correction because you spelled it wrong. It is Parkhurst, not Parkhust.
Please add the section and plot location at Long Island National Cemetery to your photo request. Thanks, Helen.

Cemetery corrected...thanks...and thank you for your Service to our Country.
|MrsB||RE: PFC Michael Becker|
This would be kind of you. If you do find the obit, if you send a picture of it to me attached to an e-mail (firstname.lastname@example.org) I can transcribe it and add to bio. I often re-organize it a little, birth-death instead of starting with death.
Thank you in advance, and thank you for working to honor those who gave all. We were at Vicksburg, and the guide said so many of the Civil War soldiers even gave their very identity. We want to remember our heroes.

Thank you so much for your edits for PFC Michael Becker. Do you happen to have an obituary for him, or did this come from military files?
I will be most happy to transcribe an obituary, and thank you for the picture as well.
There are many who served, but this young man gave his all for our nation.

Thanks for the posting on my cousin, PFC Don Hinson! The family had the citation related to his Silver Star, but not the full details that you provide in the Find A Grave Memorial (#137189201). We appreciate the additional information.
