Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am Bob, living at the Armed Forces Retirement Home, Gulfport, Mississippi. I only use my electric bicycle and public transportation. I retired from the United States Navy on Friday May 13, 1977. I have always thought of Friday the 13th as my lucky day, and it still is. I am 75 years old.
I grant permission to use my photographs in all respectful means.
I add interments when I find them, if they are from your family, I want to transfer them to you because you have more information than I do.
If you are maintaining a section of military information elsewhere, I want you to maintain the memorial sites that I posted too. Again you have more info than I do.
I am also happy to say that I have photographed every grave site at the US Soldiers' and Airmen's Home National Cemetery (up through October 2010) and the Battleground National Cemetery both in Washington, D.C.I have also Posted every grave site at St. Elizabeth's Hospital (West Campus).
I have also photographed the headstones at the Kanchanaburi War Memorial Cemetery Thailand (the POW Cemetery from the Thai Burma Railroad, Bridge on the River Kwai fame).
I have photographed all of the headstones at Chungkai War Cemetery, another POW cemetery from the Thai Burma Railroad, Bridge on the River Kwai fame, also.
In December 2012, I just completed photographing all of the headstones at Labuan War Cemetery, Malaysia; except for Section R where I missed some.
In January 2013, I just completed photographing all of the headstones at Clark Cemetery, Philippines and have posted them.
One day I will be honored by my name being included on the Fallen Find-A-Grave Contributiors Memorial.
I am also a War Graves contributor.

Thank you so very much for the photograph. Uncle "Bill" was my Great Uncle on my fathers side of the family. We are slowly piecing together his history. My Nana never talked much about the circumstances surrounding Bills life. It was though she found it too painfull to talk about. Now we've found him we can arrange for the family to pay their respects as we should. Very grateful for your help

Happy to know you have photographed Clark Cemetery. We were in that area over 30 years and have friends buried at Clark.

I know some memorials have been made there, but glad to know you have done the photos.

Bob, Thanks for the updates. My eyesight is not so good sometimes due to my diabetes. Linda told me that you go by wheelchair that 24 miles to Coalville. That is really a great dedication on your part It is a really great thing you do. My husband was a vet and I know you guys never get any credit, but thank you for your service in serving for your country and fellowmen.

Don't hold your breath on Larry and the computer. He was a 'puter man in the navy and refused to touch another one after he retired. He's my farty old brother-in-law. Celebrating his 80th July 23rd.

RE: Rita Marie Bairlleaux Santa Cruz
And then you transferred it without me asking!

This is family but so distant it takes a computer to figure it out.

Would you like me to transfer it back?

My source btw was her obituary. Daily Herald, Aug 8, 1968, p.: 2.

Hey, do you happen to know Larry Westbrook there at the Home?

Thanks Bob, that clears up the mystery for me on Ada or Abe. The cemetery records listed him as Ada and I thought it was a typo and the photo definitely clears it up.

Many Thanks,
