|Bio and Links|
I am 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 74 years old. 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.
All my photos are freely available to all persons to use in a respectful manner.
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). http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=cr&CRid=2140732
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. http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=cr&GSln=a&GScid=2210970&GRid=18896966&CRid=2210970&
In December 2012, I just completed photographing all of the headstones at Labuan War Cemetery, Malaysia and will post them shortly.
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:

|Linda Ellis||Ramsay -Campbell number|
oops...I forgot to give you the memorial number to switch your photo to. :-)

|Linda Ellis||Ramsay photo|
Dear Gulfport Bob -
It appears there was already a memorial for Ruth Latimer Ramsay listed under her last husbands name 'Campbell' made in 2011.
If you would be so kind as to switch your photo to her memorial #109864685 listed under Campbell, I'll delete the memorial you transferred to me.
Appreciate your help
Thanks you for the Ramsay transfers.
It wasn't necessary, but I appreciate it. I'll take good care of them for you.
Thanks for the correction. Occasionally Siri tries to help me spell names that are different to her. I will have to be more careful. Thanks again
Thank you for your photos of military graves around the world. Both the quantity and quality are outstanding.

Thank you for photographing the grave of John A. Yarbrough. This young man was wounded during Pancho Villa's raid on Columbus, New Mexico in 1916. He was transferred to the Soldiers' Home in DC where he died in 1919 as a result of his wound.
