Fleet Admiral Chester W. Nimitz:
"They fought together as brothers in arms; they died together and now they sleep side by side...To them, we have a solemn obligation — the obligation to ensure that their sacrifice will help make this a better and safer world in which to live."
In 2013 I completed a five year project traveling to Hawaii annually from the mainland to photograph headstones for all of our WW2 dead at the National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific (Punchbowl) in Honolulu. I have added over 10,000 photos to memorials at the cemetery. Prior to 2008, few of the memorials had headstone photos.

I have added a letter that might be of interest to you. My mother's cousin, Ken Branson was the navigator on the flight that was lost off the coast of Labrador on April 9, 1944. Corp Walker was a member of that crew of 10.

Earlier this month I had been searching for Cousin Glenn's burial location. I circled back to his page tonight and was thrilled to see his war record, cemetery location and photo of his grave marker. Thanks from the family. Glenn was my grandmother's nephew. My 2nd cousin.

Thank you so much for the wonderful photo of Charlie's marker. You may have noticed the page link to his cenotaph in Oxford, Mississippi. Charlie was my father's first cousin and they spent a great deal of time together as boys. Daddy never got over Charlie's death.
I think the photo you posted was printed with his death announcement in the Oxford Eagle newspaper.
Thank you also for all the work you have done to honor those who died in our country's service.

Thank you very much
|Deborah S||RE: Thank you|
You are most welcome. I'm always especially happy to add memorials and headstone photos for veterans.

Sgt Laird died from wound in France. Don't know if you have him.
I have lots vets in Greenwood Cemetery, if you're looking for any just e-mail the list and I'll check my photos.
|Tim Cook||Photo requests at Calvary LA|
Jeff, I tried getting photos for a few of the photo requests at Calvary Cemetery in Los Angeles a few months back.
I had a list of about 40 vets, but they were only willing to look up 3 or 4 names for me. I told them it was Veteran's Day coming up and I had a project to photograph all the known KIA's but they were not impressed in the office. They just said they can only do look ups for relatives. So I just found as many as I could randomly. It's not so easy to do there, as you can imagine it's a large cemetery and some sections have deep, thick weed like grass, and had to have several headstones dug up so they could be properly photographed.
Maybe I'll get the chance to find more in the future...
But if you get the chance, you can call the office and ask for plot numbers. It's relatively easy to find the section and row if have a map in hand...
