RE: Louis M Aiello # 39139937 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.
PFC Ralph Ruppert 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.
Mattox Obit..... Hello Dom, Nice to hear from you again. Yes, we go to the library regularly. We will look for it. It will be sometime this week. Maybe today..we will see. Have a nice day/evening. Will
