Although I have only been a member for a short time, I really enjoy getting out and seeing eastern Oregon. Its been really interesting.|
If anyone has more information about any of my memorials and would like me to transfer it to you, just let me know and I would be more than happy to do so. I don't believe that any of these memorials should be owned by anyone, but should by managed by someone that has information.
As so many cemeteries are neglected, I support the taking of as many photos of these markers as possible, so many have already been lost.

Thanks for putting this memorial to Donald Gardner on line.
Donald Gordon Gardner was a Chief Motor Machinist Mate aboard the USS Glennon DD620 on D-Day.
This ship struck a mine and was badly damaged and several crewmen killed and more injured.
Most of the crew was evacuated to another ship, but Donald and several other crew members remained aboard, protecting the damaged ship and working to keep power on and pumps running to remove water from flooded compartments. The ship could not be moved as its Props where dragging the bottom, and before this situation could be remedied a German shore artillery battery struck the wounded Glennon at least 11 times. Donald and the other crew members where told to leave the ship for their own safety after this attack.....
As a result of all the damage, both from the mine and the artillery the Glennon continued to flood and eventually sank off the invasion beach......she being one of the few allied ships lost during the D-Day invasion....
I just read a pretty complete report on line of this action...found it very interesting.
I did not know Donald, but was interested in him as he was married to a distant relative of mine and like him I was a Machinist Mate in the Navy several decades later.....

1Lt Gordon J. Benson was navigator of C-47 tailnumber 42-23404 of the 45th Troop Carrier Squadron, 316th Troop Carrier Group. Lt Porter participated in operation Husky, which the invasion and liberation of the island of Sicily. The operation started on 10 July 1943 on the south coast Sicily. Landings took place in Licata, Gela and Scoglitti.
Lt Porter was killed on 11 July 1943, when his C-47 was shot down by "friendly fire". The plane crashed on Sicily, killing all on board.
He was buried in the temporary American Cemetery GELA in plot-grave D-41-491. Date of burial was 2 August 1943.
After the war his remains were repatriated and buried in the United States.
I am writing a book about the GELA Cemetery, where over 1,200 young American men and women were buried. Hope to have the book finished next year for the 70th anniversary on 10 July 2013.
You took a picture of his grave and I would like to use the picture for my book, can I please have your permission to use the picture you took, of course you will be credited. When the book is finished you will be notified.
If you are related and you or your family may have any pictures of him, any documentation or other information about his death, hope you are willing to share those with me.
