|Jan Bos from Nijmegen, Holland||2Lt George E. Barnett|
2Lt George E. Barnett was a paratrooper in Headquarters Company 3rd Battalion 505th Parachute Infantry Regiment, 82nd Airborne Division. He jumped into Sicily during the night of 9 July 1943 during the so-called operation Husky, which started the following day. He was killed during the battle for Biazza Ridge in Sicily on 11 July 1943. He was first buried in the 505th cemetery on ridge in grave 1-1-1. Two weeks later his remains were exhumed and reburied in the temporary American Cemetery GELA in grave D-44-528, date of burial was 3 August 1943.
After the war his remains were repariated and buried in a cemetery in the States.
I am writing a book about the GELA cemetery and would like to use the picture you took of his grave. Can I have your permission to use it, of course yuu will be credited and informed when the book is finished (next year).
If you are related and may have his picture, hope you can share

Thank you so much for the photo, and for taking the time to write out the inscription. I was a little surprised to see how worn the marker actually is!
I really appreciate your efforts.

Thank you so much for uploading this photo. My wife and I are from Idaho and we were visiting DC this past weekend and came upon a grave near Arlington House for Louis Mervin Maus and we took pictures for his headstone. When we got back home I did some checking and found that there are several Maus' buried there. I'm not sure how or if they are any relation to me, so I'm doing the research now to find out.
Thank you again for your help.

I can not say thank you enough. May God Bless You, and A Great Big Thank You Again. This means so much to me and other family members that could never get there to see his grave.

Thank you so much for posting the photo of Nora's tombstone.
Nora Jean Gibson was middle school friend of mine. She was an intelligent, attractive, creative girl who loved to sing with her friends. We went to different high schools and I moved to Michigan after the tenth grade. Eventually, I lost track of her. My efforts to reconnect a decade later revealed that she had been killed in a tragic accident when she was nineteen. I only recently found where she was buried and am grateful to be able to "visit" her gravesite thanks to this photo.
