Bio Photo Finish photographing Southern Memorial Cemetery, Biloxi, MS.

I am Bob, living at the Armed Forces Retirement Home, Gulfport, Mississippi. I only use my electric bicycle and public transportation. I retired from the United States Navy on Friday May 13, 1977. I have always thought of Friday the 13th as my lucky day, and it still is. I am 74 years old. I add interments when I find them, if they are from your family, I want to transfer them to you because you have more information than I do.
I grant permission to use my photographs in all respectful means.
If you are maintaining a section of military information elsewhere, I want you to maintain the memorial sites that I posted too. Again you have more info than I do.
I am also happy to say that I have photographed every grave site at the US Soldiers' and Airmen's Home National Cemetery(up through October 2010) and the Battleground National Cemetery both in Washington, D.C.I have also Posted every grave site at St. Elizabeth's Hospital (West Campus).
I have also photographed the headstones at the Kanchanaburi War Memorial Cemetery Thailand (the POW Cemetery from the Thai Burma Railroad, Bridge on the River Kwai fame). http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=cr&CRid=2140732
I have photographed all of the headstones at Chungkai War Cemetery, another POW cemetery from the Thai Burma Railroad, Bridge on the River Kwai fame, also. http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=cr&GSln=a&GScid=2210970&GRid=18896966&CRid=2210970&
In December 2012, I just completed photographing all of the headstones at Labuan War Cemetery, Malaysia; except for Section R where I missed some.

RE: Landon, PVT Isaac
Hi and thanks for the offer. No, he is not a relative but I did find his birth place of Virginia and his birth year of 1833 if you want to add that to his memorial. Perhaps in that way a true relative might be able to find him easier

Good evening from California. Thank you so very much for allowing me to administer the memorial you created for my many-times great uncle David Kugler. Please review the changes/augments to the memorial created after your gracious sharing of this special person. See: #33636685. Best regards, Adriana.
