Bio Photo About Us:
I (Bruce)was born in RI and lived there the first 20 years of my life. I joined the USAF in 1978 and was stationed at Minot AFB ND. In 1980 I returned for a visit and married my wife Debbie(Tetrault of Providence RI) of now 34 years (May). We lived there for the next six years and started our family and all three of our kids were born in Minot ND. In Nov 1986 I was medically retired from the Air Force with a 100% service connected disability, and moved to Colorado Springs CO and raised our family there over the next nineteen years. When our children became of age and looked to start their own adult lives. Debbie and I had fell in Love through visits to Hawaii and felt we were in need of warmer weather than our homes (RI, ND, CO) of the past had to offer. So in 2004 we sold almost all we had and with little more than what we had on our back (and what $5000 would Ship (that was not much)). We set off to start life anew in Hawaii. We LOVE Hawaii!

Being retired and disabled, I fill request for Find-A-Grave here on the island of Oahu Hawaii at Punchbowl, National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific, and the many National (Cenotaph) Memorials honoring our Servicemen that gave their lives from WWII to present. Because I have a 100% service connected disability myself when I get to fill a request I also like to do a little above and beyond for brother serviceman and their families and friends. Along with the photos I take I also do a GPS waypoint reading using an iPhone app and use this in helping families and friends find views of the grave area. I think this a powerful area of Find A Grave that most don't know about or don't use.
Edit Plot: add Latitude: Longitude:.

See this memorial for an example:

Find-A-Grave General Guidelines: The copyright of all photos posted to Find A Grave remains with the original submitter. No use of photos for any other website or personal use is given without prior consent of the original submitter.

SO, I guess I also give my consent , you may use any of the photos I have taken anyway you like. All I ask is that maybe adding the tag "photo by" if used it other than on the find-a-grave site would be a nice thing to add in return for the use.
Please Enjoy our photos and work.

Aloha from Hawaii

I just wanted to say Thank you for taking a photo of his headstone, he was my sister's father in law, very nice man, the whole family just loved him. I did see where you said "Can use photos, but please say where photo came from" - I will be using your photo in my Ancestry tree, and will use your names,

Sincerely, Karen

Thank you so much for all the photos, but Hemler is crooked 3777550. Every so often, I just pick a Military cemetery and add photo requests, lately the Punchbowl is my choice. Thanks again!
