Bio and Links
Bio Photo Having been doing genealogy since the late 1970s and essentially full-time for the last 4 years, my objective is to provide well sourced facts on any memorials I manage. Thus, the viewer can rest assured they are being provided accurate information.

Since discovering, I have been in awe at how much has been contributed that has been of help to me. My goal is to return the favor.

All photos posted under my name on Find A Grave are protected by copyright. Any use without my express permission is prohibited.

I, like many other Find A Grave contributors, have spent a great deal of time and effort taking and posting photographs.

In my particular case, I do not appreciate people lifting my photographs from Find A Grave and posting them to other web sites without asking for my permission or providing any credit. This is just plain rude and against Find A Grave policy, which clearly states:

"I found a photo of a relative on Find A Grave, can I use it?

Photos posted to memorials on Find A Grave are copyrighted by the member who submitted the photos. Lifting the photo to use elsewhere would be a violation of copyright. You must obtain written permission from the member to use any photo for your own use. In general if you did not take the photo yourself, you do not hold the copyright to the photo." (From Help with Find A Grave page)

In an effort to assist Tom Brocher in his quest to have photos of all the sites in Golden Gate National Cemetery, as of June 30, 2014, photos are posted to all the memorials for those interred in Section R.

Although most of the burials in Section R are from 1950 to 1953, I am humbled to have identified:
2 servicemen who died while in captivity when the 31st Infantry Regiment was surrendered as part of the Bataan Defense Force on April 9, 1942,
1 serviceman who died in the raid on Ploesti,
1 serviceman who died in the Battle of the Bulge,
2 servicemen killed in action defending Clark Field,
1 naval aviator killed in action at Guadalcanal,
3 serviceman killed in action in World War II,
183 servicemen who were killed in action in Korea,
1 serviceman who died while held as a POW in North Korea,
40 serviceman who either died of their wounds or as non-hostile deaths in Korea,
14 servicemen killed in action in Vietnam,
3 non-hostile death of servicemen in Vietnam, and
1 serviceman killed in action in Afghanistan.

All of these men who made the ultimate sacrifice in the service of their country are included in my "Ultimate Sacrifice" virtual cemetery. A biography is included for each serviceman.

RE: Sten Erik Westin Bio
Kathleen - thank you so much for the work you performed to include so many from GGNC. Your instructions worked fine, I was able to get my father's entry assigned to me and update his biography. Again Thank you - Larry Westin

Sten Erik Westin Bio
Thank you for the work you do on Find A Grave. Your bio of my father, Sten Erik Westin, Killed Aug. 22, 1950 in Korea is quite good. One missing point I ask you to add. My father was awarded the Silver Star for his action when he was killed. He also served in the Pacific during WWII and participated in the capture of Corregidor and Negros Island in the Philippine Islands. He was with the 462nd Parachute Field Artillery, a unit of the 503RCT. Thank you for your time, Larry Westin son of Sten Erik Westin.

I see on the memorial, you are attempting to locate the exact plot, did you find it? I have a pix of the Bonneval plot, but there are no names. I am working off the Save our Cemeteries Plat. It is Square 2, St Joseph's Aisle (Alley No. 3-L) #14

RE: Dellia Harrell
No, didn't see a stone for Bertha - at least not next to his. Thanks for answering. I'll get back to the cemetery in a couple weeks and see what turns up.

Oris Vincent Laner Sr.
I took several photos of Oris Vincent Ladner Sr.'s grave this morning as well as those of Ora S Ladner, Juanita M Ladner, and Eunice V Ladner Boudin. Unfortunately, June Lillian Vallory Ladner does not have a headstone. There is a space to the left of Oris which may be where she is buried. I searched the entire cemetery and did not find her. I would be happy to send you the photos I took this morning showing the empty space next to Oris.

I am sorry I could not fulfill your request. Two gentlemen visiting a grave told me that there are many unmarked graves in the cemetery. Please contact me if you would like the newest photos.

Altobello pics and plots
Thank you for the photo and plot number! I was thinking after calls to office had failed utterly... I would need to spend a day at Metairie Cemetery finding them on my next trip there.

Saw the pics today. It appears he is most definitely listed on two vaults. Hmmmm I wonder why of course he could have initially been buried in one and then later moved to the other but why I wonder?
