Nearly all of the memorials I have entered and flowers left are somehow related to our family, if you happen to be related would love to hear from you.
I am currently working on trying to locate the final resting place of all the men who were part of the First Special Service Force, aka Devil's Brigade or Black Devils. In July 2013, the Congressional Gold Medal was awarded, collectively, to the First Special Service Force, in recognition of its superior service during World War II. Presentation of the Congressional Gold Medal took place February 3, 2015 in Washington D.C. My father-in-law, C.W. "Tiny" Beacon served in this elite unit.
Most memorials I have created in CT cemeteries are not family and happy to transfer to family or anyone who wishes to take care of memorial.
RE: Re: George Coyne Wow! What an endeavor to be working on. If you do happen to locate any relatives of his, would you mind passing on my name? It would be wonderful to talk with them about George's life. Warmly, Helen
Re: George Coyne Thanks for looking at the memorial for George R. Coyne #127122215 from Flint, Michigan. I took your suggestion and "cleaned up" the information gathered from the contributor who posted the information at Roots Web.com. Is he a fellow relative of yours also? He and his siblings were adopted by their aunt & uncle, Alvie LeRoy & Nora Grace Hillaker while they were young. I am not aware of the circumstances behind this adoption. My cousin (a grandson of Alvie & Nora) who resides in Texas could probably tell you more. Warmly, Helen
Carlisle Barracks I have sent a request to The U.S. Army War College, Carlisle Barracks for the official name of the Medal of Honor. I will forward this answer to you. One of my specialties at the FamilySearch Library, is U.S. Military Records.
