Bio Photo Hello...
I'm just starting out with the Find-A-Grave program, and I'll do a more complete bio soon.

I'm located on the Washington's Olympic Peninsula, and I'm willing to travel to nearby towns with these zip codes: 98382, 98362, 98368, 98324, 98325, 98343, 98358, 98339, 98365, 98376. These are zip codes within a 30 miles radius of my home.

William Loos--Find A Grave
Thank you very much for checking and doing the research on William Loos. I have tried to enter all the past members of the Rock Island Fire Dept in Rock Island, Ill. I was advised that Bill had been buried in Mount Angeles Cemetery. Thank you for taking the time to check out his information with the cemetery office and for letting me know he was cremated and his ashes given to his family. Thanks again for all your effort.

Hi Conrad,

Just a follow-up... A friend of mine posted a series of photos about the LANC renovation in the forums. Thought you might be interested...

RE: Los Angeles National Cemetery
Hi Conrad,

No need to worry. Your uncle is exactly where he is supposed to be, as is his marker. LANC is currently re-aligning headstones (so they make that perfect pretty symmetrical shape). I believe they do this somewhat regularly (like, every 20 years or something). Each section takes 3-4 months to complete. They do about 10 sections at a time... this has been going on for the better part of this year.

The first part of the process is to remove all the stones (& any concrete previously used to set the stones). They mark each stones placement before they remove them with a semi-permanent pen (it wears off after a few weeks). Next, they take apart and then re-set all the underground stuff that holds the stones in place. They then replace all the stones, and cement them into place. Finally, they re-sod the area.

Part of the re-aligning process is also to raise stones that have sunk too far underground. Thus, exposing the bottom of your uncle's stone.

I agree, that video makes it look like they're doing something horrible. And indeed, in person, it does look horrible in places. But, in the end, everything ends up exactly where it came from, and it all looks beautiful again.

Hope this helps 8-)

You are very welcome, it wasn't easy but I'm glad I was able to find your Father. It's amazing how different the cemetery looks now, as I said all of those upright markers and bushes are gone now. If you like, I took some photos of the area, and can email them to you. I don't live near the L.A. Veterans cemetery, but if I get there I'll try and get a photo for Blair.

RE: Jack Drum
Hi,
I got the photo of Jack's grave, with help from the office. I was looking in the wrong area of this section before.

RE: Jack Drum
No problem. Very nice photo, the cemetery looked very different back then. I don't believe there are any upright markers left, and a small mausoleum now sits on part of that section. If I find your Father, I'll post some extra photos so you can see how everything looks now.
