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.

Ft. Snelling
Hello Steve,
Wanted to thank you for the photos of John Adams and Michael Alicante markers at Ft. Snelling. They are great and much appreciated.
About a month ago, during my travels on Find A Grave, I came across your bio. I visited the other memorial for Aaron and Scrappy, and as I was brought to tears, I thought how fortunate for Aaron that he was given to your loving care during his short journey here on earth. What a wonderful father you are :) !! !! Thank you for that memorial too, it touched my heart.

First I want to thank you for your loyal and courageous service for our country- may God richly bless you for protecting our freedom! Thank you also for the great photo of the headstone of Joseph and Genevieve Fugle; I appreciate your time and trouble. May I have your permission to use the photo on my ancestry tree (with proper credit given)? Just let me know~

Fort Snelling National Cemetery
Wow! Steve, thank you for capturing such a beautiful moment in God's nature, and to share it with all of us! As you may know, the Rainbow is the Sign of The Lord's Covenant with us! The RED pickup on the road is way too cool! It speaks to me of the blood that was not only shed on the battlefields, but by Jesus for us all. You truly have an artist's eye with your photography...the framing is superb!

I came upon this cemetery while making a Family Tree for the daughter of Darrold Herman Niederkorn #46550986, who was once married to my brother-in-law. I am going to write to her of the 8 Dec 2014 "Home Going" of her former Mother-In-Law, Esther, whom she loved dearly and continued communication with her for many years. Esther would have turned 91 in January.

Thank you for your heart-led work on Find A is so appreciated! I truly enjoyed the history of the cemetery that apparently, you placed here just yesterday! Very interesting!

Thank you, too, for your service to our GREAT COUNTRY in the cause of FREEDOM!

Christmas Blessings to you and lovely Oral!
