Bio and Links
Bio Photo These heroes are dead. They died for liberty - they died for us. They are at rest. They may or may not sleep in the land they made free, under the flag they rendered stainless, under the solemn pines, the sad hemlocks, the tearful willows, and the embracing vines. They sleep beneath the shadows of the clouds, careless alike of sunshine or of storm, each in the windowless Place of Rest. Earth may run red with other wars - they are at peace. In the midst of battle, in the roar of conflict, they found the serenity of death. I have one sentiment for soldiers living and dead: cheers for the living; tears for the dead.

~ Robert G. Ingersoll


Pictures and Bios:

For me a simple attribution, Michael V. Drachman 2000-2014 works for any of my bio's, (pictures ) for personal use .

Should you use them or publish them elsewhere, say Ancestry or other similar PAY sites, please,, post the link to the site here at Find A Grave.. even though Ancestry has acquired Findagrave.

"I have a burr under the Saddle on this one" that being pay sites profiting from Volunteers work....


In the end, never let yourself become complacent to those who have went before us, always make time to remember the sacrifices that have been made for us by our Ancestors and the Men and Women of our Armed Forces who have guarded our Constitution with their lives, some gave all to secure our rights,liberties and freedom, 100's of thousands never came home....let us not forget as that would indeed make those, lives lost in vein...

A Nation which forgets its Defenders, will itself be forgotten ..

RE: Ulibarri.Joe.Ross / Nelson.Scott.Andrew
Thank you for posting the photo of Scott's headstone. I have photos of Scott that I will upload to his memorial page and will try to confirm unit information from his sons.

Much appreciated.

Hi Michael, just wanted to let you know I checked Robert's memorial and a Nimblejacks took a very nice picture of the grave.
Thank you for all you did for me locating the right grave, sorry you didn't get there first. Judy Wilcox

RE: Done deal
That's great. Thanks so much. It makes it so much easier for the volunteer workinging with me when all the same section can be posted together.

RE: Ulibarri.Joe.Ross
I will unreserve the request and just let you upload the photo if you already have it. THANK YOU! I grabbed it because I was hoping to go there this week to also take a photo of my uncle's. If you happen to also have one for Scott A Nelson and could post that to his memorial, that would be awesome. If not, I'll go take it. Thanks again. Have a great day.

RE: Requests
My phone does that to me all the time hahahaha

There are 19 I need requested. They're all in a virtual Cemetery:
ZZ Photo Needed CHNC # 3

I really appreciate it. The 20 request limit is a pain when you're doing a project like this.
All the requests are in Cypress hills National Cemetery. The men are Spanish American War & WW I veterans.

Photo Requests
Hello Michael - I'm in need of a "donation" of photo requests for a clean-up / photography project at a National Cemetery. Can you make 20 requests this week ? Or any would help. Look forward to hearing back from you.
