Hi Domi-I found Harry's obituary from the Chicago Tribune:

Hello Dominique,

Thank you so much for the photo added for Edwin.

I am not closely related, but this memorial and your photo helped me to make the connections to add his parents, his full name and birth date and location.

He never had the chance to marry, but enlisted to serve his country and died on foreign soil as a veteran.

Thank you for your service to your country, as military personnel are vital everywhere freedom must be protected.

And thank you for being a Find A Grave volunteer - your service here is assisting families to find and see the burial locations of their kindred dead.

Have a great day - YOU made my day great!

Domi ... Don't think he was in WWII. I checked ancestry.com and see he served in the U.S. Army from 12 Dec 1945 - 8 Jun 1947 ... too late.

Glad I at least finally found him! The cemetery is huge and I obviously missed him twice before.

Thanks for all your efforts. As a 23 year U.S. Navy veteran, I too try to focus on properly remembering those "who gave all." Have you seen http://www.fallenheroesofnormandy.org/ Mainly covers British Commonwealth losses presently, but says will start working shortly on U.S. & others. I've been transferring photos there to Find a Grave for several months.

Thanks again ... sorry to hear about the recent events in Brussels ... hopefully you weren't personally affected!

RE: Alfred H Barnum # 111732293
There is a Facebook page that honors the memory of those of the 507th PIR who died in Europe during the war. Not sure if you know about it: Go to FB and you search: 507th PIR in WW2 Memorial. It is run by a woman named Kathy Smith. I just joined it so that I might learn more about Alfred H. Barnum.

I wonder if you have put together a Virtual Cemetery for the 507th. I think that I read that there were over 2000 men in that group. Might be nice to find out what happened to them all.

A huge task, but it might be fun.

Thank you for posting my uncle's grave. He died before I was born but was held dear to our family.
His older brothers Herman, Cleldon and Richard also served in the war but returned safe.
