|Doc Wilson||re: Jewish WWI Unknowns|
I read somewhere, and IIRC it was confirmed by Geoffrey Fournier, that it was General Pershing, when he was Chairman of the ABMC, who made the decision to put up a certain percentage of Star of David headstones for the Unknowns. I created a F.A.G. page for one at Somme American Cemetery -- see #143748088.
|Doc Wilson||re: Unknowns at Rhone|
That's good news to hear. It's news like that that makes we wish I were in a position to apply for a job with the ABMC and assist with those kinds of efforts.
I'll hold off on doing anything drastic. See Find A Grave #143747859 for what I did at the Somme American Cemetery, as well as #143748088 for an Unknown Jewish Soldier.
|Doc Wilson||re: Joseph D Crowley photo|
Thanks for taking the photo. I wasn't quite sure how you, as the Supertintendent of the cemetery, wanted something like that handled. I'll email you later with a question about how to list the Unknowns.
|Dan Phelan||Pvt Charles W Mosser photo--thanks!|
Thanks so much for the beautiful photo of Charles Mosser's monument. I see it was sanded. Did you do that, or was it done before you got there? It also looks like you added the flags--very nice touch thank you again!
|Angie Marlett||Carl Dill|
Thank you for leaving the photos of Carls Grave!

There are just not enough words to thank you for taking your time in service and your time to photograph these memorials that otherwise, we would never see.
|Carolyn Williams||Epinal Cemetary|
Thank you sir for all you have done in service of your country and that you continue to do. I so appreciate the attention to my uncle, Lucian Zarlenga's grave and the information you have provided.
|Margie Sweeney||RE: Private John Kreiner, Jr|
You are very welcome Sir. I just found you on Facebook and sent you a few attachments. Also a friend request.
|Margie Sweeney||Private John Kreiner, Jr|
My Uncle Johnny. Thank you for decorating his grave. Bless you. Margie Kreiner Sweeney
With deep appreciation for all you have done over your career, and recently taking the time to help us better appreciate where our family history overlapped with world history.
