Bio Photo      I enter records here on Find A Grave for two reasons: First to help others find the graves of lost family members and second to remember our War Hero's who have "Given Their All" for our country!

If you'd like me to fix any of the records that I maintain ... please click on the "Edit" button on the top right of the record, click on "Suggest a Correction" ... Enter your note and/or correction and I'll fix them as quickly as possible.

When requesting a transfer use the edit tab on the memorial and follow the below from F-A-G. Or the request will be ignored.

From F-A-G

"Explain your relationship in the request! Any non-direct relatives (aunts, uncles, cousins, etc) are not required to be transferred. Keep in mind that the original contributor may also be related to the memorial and may not make the transfer. Bulk surname requests should not be made."

     I'm currently working on updating and entered Soldiers and Sailors who "Gave Their All" during World War II. To see more on this project please click on my website below...

     I originally started researching my Family Tree when my oldest son, Chris, came home from school one day and said that they had to write up their family tree as a project. This, of course, led me to many cemeteries and I quickly became interested in them also.

     I've always enjoyed history and the two fell together.

     Again, If I've created a record that someone needs deleted (since some families do not want their loved ones on the internet) or that you want me to update please let me know and I'll be glad to update it for you.

RE: Teddy Dudziak
Thanks, Russ. The URL you sent seems to time out.

Is it complete?

RE: Teddy Dudziak
Russ, you mentioned that you checked the enlistment papers for Teddy Dudziak. Would you be able to send me a copy of these papers? These are something I do not have. Also, can you tell me where you found them? Thanks, Ted Dudziak

RE: Sgt Kenneth Faber
WOW!!! Great info! Thanks for sharing with us all. I had the utmost priviledge to have known my Great Uncle who was a bomber pilot. Such great stories. I just wish I had taken the time to get it all on video.

RE: Corp Theodore J Lewis
My pleasure.

I was drawn to the request because my father had volunteered to join the Army in January of 1941. Unlike Corp Lewis, he made it through the end of WWII without injury.

Thanks to you for your work in documenting the lives and final resting places of these men.
