|This page is dedicated to the honorable men of the 7th Armored Division who sacraficed their lives not only for their country but the entire world, and for those "Who Came Home" and have since passed away. I am honored to maintain this page for these heroes.|
Out of the known 1368 deaths of the 7th Armored Division in Europe, we have located approximately 1,151. If you happen to know of any 7th AD not listed, PLEASE contact us. We do thank all of those who have transfered accounts to us.
You may view Wesley Johnston's website www.7tharmddiv.org for this is where I find valuable information and the history of the 7th Armored Division.
Part of the 7th AD was formed from the "Alaskan Defence Command", which fought in the Aleutians. You will also find a Virtual Cemetery title "Aleutian Islands" which is comprised of the ADC and the 7th Infantry Division who died in the Aleutians.
Unrelated to my quest of the 7th Armored Division, I have placed other virtual cemeteries. These are for the honorable men of the Choctaw, Comanche, Sioux, Meskwaki and Navajo Nations. Until recent years, they have often been ignored and forgotten. These unsung heroes are simply known as Code Talkers.
Please visit Bob and Nancy Cannon's site to view other military medal recipiants and Shane O. for WWII deaths.
I know there are so many, but so many have been forgotten. Please do not let time forget them.
Thank you sincerely
A Son of the 7th...

Good day, I notice you have a picture and a small clip on my grandmother's brother William Owen Butterbaugh. Thank you for the pictures. Do you have any other information you could possible pass to me? You can message me back on here or email me at email@example.com
Thank you so much,
|Elena Castrignano||Pvt Frank Barley|
I am trying to work my way through St. Mary's Cemetery in Wilkes Barre Pennsylvania. You recently submitted a photo request for Pvt Barley. I would love to help you out, however, I need an approximate location of the grave, the cemetery is huge. If you can call the cemetery's office and find out the section Pvt Barley is buried in I am certain I can find the grave for you.
|Mhovar||Acacia Park Cemetery Photo Request|
Hello - I work near the Acacia Park Cemetery in Chicago, where you have a photo request, and I can easily stop by anytime. However the cemetery office has a policy to only allow me two location lookups per visit, so with over 100 requests, I am making graves with plot information my priority. If you would like me to add a photo, I would ask that you call the office (773-625-7800) for a location and add it to the listing. Thanks!

You're very welcome. I might go out again if the weather stays nice and try to do a little more cleaning up and try to take the Pic again.
Thanks for all that you do in the contributions you make for F.A.G..

Thank you SO much for creating the memorial for my grandpa. I've been searching for information on him and wasn't having any luck. Then I came across your memorial for him and instantly recognized the same photo that my dad keeps of him. This led me to another website that provided more details of his military service. I'm looking forward to showing my dad, who is now 75, but who was only 7 years old when my grandpa was killed. Thank you again honoring him here.
