I posted a new photo for Paul David Myers, 70044869. So...What do you think "NCM" on the stone means.

Non Combat Mortality ?????

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.

I sent you a correction because you spelled it wrong. It is Parkhurst, not Parkhust.

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 ( 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.

PFC Michael Becker
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.

Re: PFC Don Hinson

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.
