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.
Cemetery Photo The photo you took of the military cemetery with the rainbow is absolutely beautiful … I just love it and I think it is wonderful that it's the photo used when someone selects that cemetery as the one their loved one has been buried at … GREAT JOB!
Harold "Curly" Guse Thanks so much for the wonderful photo of my Uncle Curly's gravestone. He was a wonderful man. You do the most important work now with your photos and we are lucky for it! Thank you so very much!
Thank you for reporting the problem you had locating Alice Teresa Robinette to photo her headstone for me. It turns out that she is there however she is buried under her married name, Alice Teresa Robinette Levercom. Refer to memorial # 3468110. Her headstone photo already exists.
Thank you for taking the time to deal with this problem.
