Bio and Links
Bio Photo I served in the Army and Army Reserve for over 25 years with more than 15 years in the public affairs arena.
My experience runs the gamut from working at the U.S. Army Field Station at Camp Humphreys, Korea to running the day-to-day operations of the Press Camp Headquarters at Fort Shafter, Hawaii.
Various positions have included work as a newspaper editor, educational publications, community and media relations, as well as marketing.
For the past three years I have been dedicating time to primarily adding records for my extended family, friends and veterans' and local cemeteries.
Additionally, in late 2012 I completed my application and was accepted into the Daughters of 1812, my first lineage society.

19th Century soldiers buried at Fort Leavenworth to be identified

Fort Leavenworth — For more than a century, the names of 62 frontier Army soldiers have been unknown as they lie in rest at Fort Leavenworth’s cemetery.

The Army closed Fort Larned and transferred the remains in 1888, a standard practice when posts were abandoned. The remains were exhumed and reburied, but not individually identified.

This weekend, those soldiers who died over a 19-year span at Fort Larned in southwest Kansas will be identified. A new bronze monument will be dedicated with the names of the soldiers, giving them recognition for their service.

Most of the men died of diseases that today wouldn’t be fatal but were on the remote Kansas prairie. Historian George Elmore says about 15 percent of those who died were killed in action with Indian tribes.
