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).

Hi Eric - thank you for the flowers you left on my cousin's memorial. Cook County is the next county NE of St Louis County. Always confusion between the two. The village/city of Cook is in St Louis County where George and the family lived.

Thank you for leaving a memorial for my Uncle Earl.. Yes, he was killed over there as a very young man. I never got to meet him, but heard my dad talk about him, who also was in World War II, but he made it home.. Thank you again..

Thanks for the note, but I realized it was a typo and had already corrected it.

I updated his page in Mount Hope Cemetery, Topeka, and added info about the Wall of the Missing and his marker there.
I included the Find A Grave number for that page, also.

I did link his parents to my marker for him.

I copied off his page in Mount Hope, as I do all the ones I update there, to take to the cemetery office for their files. I make a weekly trip there, usually updating about 30 pages a week. Not very many when you consider 35,000+ are buried there.
