Bio Photo LAST ON LINE: 21 Oct 2016

Retired Federal Law Enforcement Officer with over 29 years of service. I am also the wife of a retired US Army soldier and the mother of a soldier who was injured in Iraq from an IED but was able to complete his tour of duty! SUPPORT THE TROOPS!!!! Please Honor all our military without complaining on memorials!

My memorials are lopsided as I manage a deceased cousin's contributions to Findagrave.

TRANSFERS: I follow Findagrave's guidelines of the 4-generation rule for transfers; aunts/uncles/cousins are not included in the transfer rule. Consider creating a virtual cemetery to keep your relatives together. If the individual in the 4-generation rule transfer request is closer related to me or my family members, then I will maintain the memorial(s).

DEATH CERTIFICATES are welcomed on my memorials as they are in the public domain and, although at times there are errors, they can provide a wealth of information. I add them so individual's who cannot afford have access to their relative(s) documents. It's my way of paying back.

Findagrave is again changing special flowers and modifying bios if they don't approve.

SUGGESTIONS: For those making suggestions, please research and provide the researched information for me to update. Additionally; 1: If someone has a duplicate memorial, courtesy is to ask that individual to delete it FIRST before asking Findagrave to get involved, and 2. When you receive an edit request please DO NOT update the information you received and then decline the edit you received - that is just NOT cool!

HEADSTONE PHOTO VOLUNTEERS-If you volunteer and post headstone photos, please take a photo of the COMPLETE marker and please take the time to ensure your photos are posted as right side UP (not sideways or upside down). I find more and more that some individuals crop the bottom of the markers off & some post photos sideways and blame their computer program - especially on military grave sites, which does an injustice to our veterans. You took the time to take the photo, then PLEASE take the time to crop & post the headstone photo correctly.

Please don't create additional IDs and claim photo requests because you have used your allotted photo claims or you fail to take the photo in a timely manner and then reclaim it under another one of your IDs (which is illegal by Findagrave rules). We know who you are and, should the need arise, you will be reported to the Administrators for abusing the system.

SSDI-Regarding the "Last Residence" in the SSDI: This is the last address of record, not necessarily where the individual died. Please do not ask me to list it as the place of death on memorial pages - to do so would only be a guess.

I work hard on Findagrave and have sponsored quite a few memorials. Please be a contributor and not just a person who adds names. It's great to see the people who do provide research.

RE: Headstone-Fred Burleson
Will do! Took lots of Burleson photos… any that I saw as I walked! It will take a while to get them loaded so if there's some in particular you'd like to have let me know and I'll do those first!

Marcelino Serna
Dear Sherlocks Cousin,

I am researching my paternal grandfather's WWI army unit, Company B, 355th Infantry, 89th Division. Marcelino Serna was also a member of this unit, and as you likely know, had a distinguished military career. For what it's worth, my grandfather, Gunder Anderson, was seriously wounded on 9/14/1918.

I'm not sure where I'm going with my project, but I want to eventually publish something, possibly a book, at least an article. Should this actually happen, my I get permission to use your photograph of Marcelino Serna's gravestone in any future publications?

Marcelino Serna

With warm regards,

Bryan Anderson
