Bio and Links
Bio Photo Most Ft. Snelling interments of servicemen and their families I have added I didn't know personally. I add head stone photos and a token/note when possible. I do this to honor the men and their families. I want to give their pages something more than just a name and a date.

"Shoot for the moon. Even if you miss, you'll land among the stars."

I'm from Minneapolis, MN and have lived in this area all my life. I'm a proud veteran and spent 3 years in the army and I served two tours of duty in Viet Nam, (late 1969-1972.) I was wounded twice. I was assigned to The First Cavalry Division and was in the infantry and then a combat engineer & operated a bulldozer & later I was assigned to aviation and was a crew chief/door gunner on a UH-1 Huey helicopter. I'm a recipient of the Bronze Star, two Purple Hearts, two Air Medals, two Commendation Medals, Good Conduct Medal, Combat Infantryman Badge, Aircraft Crewman Wings, & a Marksman Rifle Medal.
I'm a former local truck driver of 35 years and a former part time fire photographer for seven years. I was forced to retire in 2004 due to back problems. Now I spend time listing interments. I fill photo requests for Fort Snelling National Cemetery. If you see ANY FT. Snelling memorials with a mistake or missing plots & sections or need a spouse/parents links added please let me know and I will get it corrected or updated.
I do appreciate you visiting Aaron's memorial and for all of your kind words. Thank you so much. It has helped a lot with the passing of my beloved Aaron. Aaron was a blessing and I miss him so much.
If you see anything that I have submitted that needs correction, please let me know. I will be happy to correct it.

Helping those who live so far away from their deceased loved ones is not only a selfless act of kindness on your part, it is a cherished and priceless gift that you give to us. Your time and effort are much appreciated; you're an asset to this web site!

Thank you so very much for the photograph of my cousins' headstone.
I feel the deep loss of your son, and sincerely hope that God will help ease your pain of your son's passing.
My husband and I also had only one child, a son. He was born roughly a year before your son. Thank goodness he is still with us and has given us a beautiful grandson.
Our thoughts and prayers are with you,

Thank you
Dear sir,
First I want to thank you for your dedicated service to this great country. I can tell by reading your bio that you sacrificed a great deal during your time in Vietnam and it is because of men like you that I joined the infantry and am proud to say that I am a veteran (3rd Battalion 2nd Marine Division India co.) As for the picture you took for me it is of my Great Grandmother Eleanor and no other family member has one so we all thank you.

You work quickly! I just asked for the pic about 12 hours ago. Thank you for what you do. I think it's awesome how many memorials you've added AND you take pictures. I've noticed how quickly findagrave has grown, and it's all thanks to people like you.

God Bless,
