Bio and Links
Bio Photo Most Ft. Snelling interments of servicemen and their families I have added I didn't know personally. I add head stone photos and a token/note when possible. I do this to honor the men and their families. I want to give their pages something more than just a name and a date.

"Shoot for the moon. Even if you miss, you'll land among the stars."

I'm from Minneapolis, MN and have lived in this area all my life. I'm a proud veteran and spent 3 years in the army and I served two tours of duty in Viet Nam, (late 1969-1972.) I was wounded twice. I was assigned to The First Cavalry Division and was in the infantry and then a combat engineer & operated a bulldozer & later I was assigned to aviation and was a crew chief/door gunner on a UH-1 Huey helicopter. I'm a recipient of the Bronze Star, two Purple Hearts, two Air Medals, two Commendation Medals, Good Conduct Medal, Combat Infantryman Badge, Aircraft Crewman Wings, & a Marksman Rifle Medal.
I'm a former local truck driver of 35 years and a former part time fire photographer for seven years. I was forced to retire in 2004 due to back problems. Now I spend time listing interments. I fill photo requests for Fort Snelling National Cemetery. If you see ANY FT. Snelling memorials with a mistake or missing plots & sections or need a spouse/parents links added please let me know and I will get it corrected or updated.
I do appreciate you visiting Aaron's memorial and for all of your kind words. Thank you so much. It has helped a lot with the passing of my beloved Aaron. Aaron was a blessing and I miss him so much.
If you see anything that I have submitted that needs correction, please let me know. I will be happy to correct it.

RE: Lynch family in All Saints Lakeville
All of the updates went through. Looks great! I am almost done linking people in my grandmother's family. I have had trouble with the website today too. Thanks again for all of your work out at All Saints. I was there today taking a couple of photos. It is a neat cemetery. The best thing about it is the large field behind it with all of the prairie dogs that pop their heads up. They made my day.

Lynch family in All Saints Lakeville
Thank you for updating Daniel Lynch's memorial. I did receive the notification that you had declined to link Eugene Lynch with his 1st wife, Mayme Lynch, and his second wife, Helen Lynch. Helen Lynch is my grandmother, so I am able to verify that the information is correct. Can you let me know why you decided to decline my request to link them? Thanks again.
