Bio and Links
Primarily interested in researching and honoring our WWII soldiers who were killed in action or who are still listed as missing in action. Their sacrifice needs to be remembered and honored. My inspiration for doing this are family members, TEC 5 Edward J. Ackermann (Find A Grave Memorial #24236825); 1st Lieutenant Lawrence M. Edman (Find A Grave Memorials #56289441 & 11307719); and 1st Lieutenant John R. Riisoe (Find A Grave Memorials #56763052 & #11535944).

I came across the stone of a service member and photographed it. Fortunately, I was able to connect his photo with your memorial of him.

Hey Eric,

Great find ... :-)

Notice under his name it notes he would have been a member of the class of "1946"?

Apparently he live in Maryland (since I found his parents records) and was going to Princeton in 1944. It appears he went home ... told his parents about signing up for the Army and then enlisted in Baltimore ....

At least that's what I see ... :-)

His record now:

Thanks Eric,

Thank you Eric for placing memorial token for my Uncle Earl.. I never met him, but my dad talked about his baby brother, and how he joined in WW2 and never made it back home.. Killed on Valentine's day.. so sad.. but thank you for remembering him.

Hey Eric,

Saw how you identified his record with his "Father" residing in the District Of Columbia ... Looks like a good way to word it since his headstone shows "Maryland". :-)

There was another record with a note from you I saw yesterday and the note "really" helped me out a lot in deciding where he was from.

Keep up the "Great Work" my friend ! I appreciate it very much. :-)

I hope I haven't "tick you off" !

Thank you for the work you are doing honoring these soldiers. You posted to my Mom's first husband, Theodore "Ted" Allen that he died non battle, which is correct. Ted was a cadet in Pampa Texas with only four hours left of flight time to graduate when he sprained his ankle which kept him grounded until the day before graduation. He went up to fulfill the requirement to graduate the next day with his class. While in the air there were new cadets beginning their training and one of them lost control midair and collided with Teds plane, killing all four men in the two planes. My Mom and Ted were married only two years and had no children.
