Bio Photo "Freedom is not Free"

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

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."


I have recently 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 headstone photos added and I made it a commitment to travel their annually to finish this project which I completed in 2013.

RE: My thanks to you!
I want to thank you so much for letting me know uncle Joe was included. I never had the pleasure of meeting him but a cousin of mine told me that she use to communicate with a friend that saw him get killed by a sniper in Iwo Jima.
I am from a very large military family all the way back and I am such a "Proud American"
God bless all of our troops and their families
I would like to join the DAR but I need to research and see what paperwork I will need to join.
Thank you again

My thanks to you!
Hi Jeff,
I wish to thank you for your endless work on this project. My uncle, Pvt. Joseph F. Ferguson was kia in Iwo Jima in 1945. He is buried in a cemetery (May) in McAndrews, Kentucky. I never had the pleasure of meeting him but I have heard such wonderful stories about him. My father talked about him a lot. I am from a large military family and a very proud American.
Uncle Joe is buried up on top of a mountain and I hope to go to his grave one day.
Have a great day and God bless you

Thank you for posting that to the memorial. Again, I really appreciate you doing that. You have been a big help in my quest for finding Kansas WWII gravesites and helping to update my virtual cemeteries for each county.

I am working on finding a gravesite for Sgt. Edmund Kissinger, who died during Operation Varsity in 1945. He is listed in Wyandotte County KS NARA records. I was wondering if you might look into U.S., Headstone Applications for Military Veterans, 1925-1963 on again and provide me with his burial location. Once again, I really appreciate your assistance in these matters.

Thank you for all you do on Find-A-Grave!!!

Jeff, I believe you asked for a wider photo of Mr. Hines' grave site. I didn't want to post that on the website but would be happy to email it to you, if you'd like. You can contact me at

RE: Sgt Shigeo J
You're so welcome Jeff. It was interesting to learn about the Niesi soldiers - I'd never heard of them before. My father and several uncles and cousins were enlisted soldiers in World War II - of all the stories my parents would tell me of that time, they never mentioned the Niesi. Makes me wonder how many were killed in battle and how many medals were awarded to the Niesi before the war was finally over.
