Bio and Links
Bio Photo Please check out my WWII virtual cemeteries!

If you have any photo requests available, please make a few, as at the 20 per week rate, it will take me 10 years to get my 73,000 WWII KIA entries completed.

If you see incorrect entries or duplicates (dups usually from the Findgrave crashmaster)...let me know asap!!! If you would like me to transfer a memorial, I will transfer them.

MY GOAL IS HONOR AS MANY AMERICAN VETS THAT GAVE THEIR LIVES, AS I POSSIBLY CAN, ESPECIALLY WWII, AS IT WAS THE WAR THE CHANGED THE WORLD!!!

ANY WWII KIA'S, YOU MAY COME ACROSS, PLEASE CONTACT ME SO I CAN ADD THEM TO MY VIRTUAL CEMS.

RE: Maj Charles Sherman Hoyt, Jr 127389128
I have added a bio I wrote to his memorial page. If you have any additions or corrections I would very much appreciate your help. No memorial article for him ever appeared in any West Point publication.

Thank you for your help.

The USMA Post Cemetery has responded to my query regarding the site of his stone. As the information furnished by the post cemetery does not match your edit, your edit will be declined.

Thank you for your help.

RE: You would know...
When World War II began, the minimum requirements to become a pilot/officer was to be a college/university degree graduate. Due to a shortage of pilots, the Army decided to create a title of Flight Officer, a non-commissioned rank for
men who met the physical requirements but did not have a degree. Essentially "flying Staff Sergeants."
So the minimum rank for a FLT O is SSGT. When WW II
ended, the title of FLT O was eliminated and those men who opted to stay in the service were given the rank of Master Sergeant and could go on to enter the Lieutenant officers program and become full fledged pilots if they met the requirements that had been in place at the start of the war.
As far as contributors who show Warrant Officer, I think that is OK if that's what they entered the service as. Unfortunately, there are a handful of contributors on here who refuse to add any TITLE and decline my updates for that. Even an Aviation Cadet, at a minimum, has the rank of PVT. Many had already achieved the training to become Staff Sergeants. The way I look at it, anyone who died with their boots on for our country's service deserves a minimum rank listed on their memorial page. On the flip side, I get update requests all the time wanting me to add PVT, CPL, SGT etc. even though they were discharged 20,30,50 years earlier and I have to explain that non-comm titles are no longer appropriate...

RE: Wilson G Baird
Hi Shane.

I have had to give up any cemetery visits. In December, was diagnosed with glioblastoma multiforme level 4. Am undergoing treatment now, for another couple weeks. Given 6 weeks to one year.

Will see if I can find someone for you. Thanks for allowing me to be a part of your effort.

Respectfully,
Bobby

OK to use Arthur's gravemarker photo that you took on his page in the Kenora Great War Project, credit given to you?
