|Bio and Links|
These heroes are dead. They died for liberty - they died for us. They are at rest. They may or may not sleep in the land they made free, under the flag they rendered stainless, under the solemn pines, the sad hemlocks, the tearful willows, and the embracing vines. They sleep beneath the shadows of the clouds, careless alike of sunshine or of storm, each in the windowless Place of Rest. Earth may run red with other wars - they are at peace. In the midst of battle, in the roar of conflict, they found the serenity of death. I have one sentiment for soldiers living and dead: cheers for the living; tears for the dead. |

Michael, thank you ever so much for your beautiful grave marker photo! Do you live in France or were you just visiting American Cemeteries in France?
It is persons such as you who make this world a better place in which to live!
|Bill Norman||Norman Bernard Huebner|
Thank you so much for your photos of the grave of Norman Huebner at the Lorraine American Cemetery in St. Avold, France. I am especially impressed by, and appreciative of, the honor you bestow upon the American Veteran and your attention to detail. Both are reflected in the excellence of your photos. I salute you, sir.
|Russ Pickett||You know ....|
It is still so impressive to me the way they lined all the headstones up .... I was at Arlington recently and just stood and gazed at the perfect lines of headstones! Awesome!!
|Russ Pickett||PFC William H Maltbie, Jr|
I would have to agree with you that it is a "goof" since he is also the "only" William Maltbie listed in NARA .... and that shows he enlisted and was born in "Maryland" ... but I don't know what to do about it either .... :-(
|Christophe Mora||George A. Dodge|
Mike, thank you so much for your time and efforts, and for helping me with researches about this gentleman.
Have a wonderful day,

|Christophe Mora||Veteran stone in Lakeview Cemetery (Wayland/Cochituate)|
Dear Sir, I am a french history enthusiast doing researches about the US Army WWII Paratroopers.
I found an obituary for one of those gentelemen, a soldier named George A. Dodge, of Wellesley, MA, and that says that he passed away on March 19th, 1968 and was buried at the "Lakeview Cemetery".
I believe this cemetery is this one: http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=cr&GSsr=41&GScid=91155&GRid=53079672&CRid=91155&
I noticed that you are managing quite a lot of memorials from this cemetery, and I was wondering if maybe you would be able to locate the grave for this WWII paratrooper veteran and maybe take a picture of it for me???
Hope this isn't sounding like a way too crazy request.
Don't hesitate if you think you can help me in my researches.
Have a wonderful day,
Regards from France,
|Carol Froehlich||Cyril Sybeldon|
