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.

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.

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.

Pvt Charles W Mosser photo--thanks!
Hi Andy,
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!

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.
