Bio and Links
Bio Photo I was born in Mt. Healthy Ohio at a very young age. We (my family) moved to Des Moines, IA in 1957, then to Illinois (1961) where we settled in Harvey, a southern suburb of Chicago.

I have been married three times and have settled in Gadsden, AL, where I will live out my days in the same kind of weather that I left Chicago for.

I was in the "bypassed" generation. My grandfathers were not in the service. My father was. Although my brother and several cousins were, I wasn't. I have three son's that were.

I have come to know the importance of our military and what a drastic price is paid whenever we are at war with someone. I want to honor those that have served. Whether they fell in battle or not, they deserve our love, respect and thanks.

Therefore, I will photograph every headstone of every soldier I see, no matter where I am. I will establish a memorial for the ones that are not already here. They have already paid me more than my time is worth to do this.

My wish is that our LOVING GOD has granted them peace.

I also leave flowers for any service man or woman I run across here with the following comment.

"Sleep well brave soldier, for a grateful country mourns your passing and thanks you for a job well done."

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

If you would like to honor those in service now and thank them for what they are doing, go to:

http://www.greenbeanscoffee.com/coj/index.php

This will give you the chance to send your thanks to a HERO over there. They can read your letter as they sip their 'cup-of-joe' that you sent. It will not cost you as much for that drink as he/she is paying for being in harms way.

Make sure you bookmark the site so you can go back again and again.
