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.

Thankyou :-)
I have heard the family memories of my Great Grandfather passed down through family members and now i can see his gravestone. Many thanks for photographing it. There is not much evidence of him around (his story is tragic his actual age on his grave is incorrect as he lied about his age, to appear older so he could go to war and was captured). Again, many thanks

Thank you so much for taking the picture of my mothers uncles memorial plaque. No doubt your time spent doing this is very much appreciated by many people and families all over the world who have not been able to visit the war graves themselves. Thank you.

I wanted to send you a thank you for posting a photograph of my mother-in-laws Uncle Sam's grave. You have made a 98 year old woman very happy, she never thought she would find out where he was buried let alone see a photo of his grave.

Once again thank you
