Bio and Links
Bio Photo Nearly all of the memorials I have entered and flowers left are somehow related to our family, if you happen to be related would love to hear from you.

I am currently working on trying to locate the final resting place of all the men who were part of the First Special Service Force, aka Devil's Brigade or Black Devils. In July 2013, the Congressional Gold Medal was awarded, collectively, to the First Special Service Force, in recognition of its superior service during World War II. Presentation of the Congressional Gold Medal took place February 3, 2015 in Washington D.C.
My father-in-law, C.W. "Tiny" Beacon served in this elite unit.

Most memorials I have created in CT cemeteries are not family and happy to transfer to family or anyone who wishes to take care of memorial.

Harris H Gilman
I am working with American Legion Post 200 in Grand Junction, Co. cataloging veterans buried in the Orchard Mesa Cemetery, other than those in the Veterans section. We found a headstone in the IOOF section for a Harris H Gilman b. 18 Jun 1921, d 9 Nov 2013. I found a memorial in the Memorial Gardens Cemetery. Do you know anything about this?

RE: Sienkowski
Hello! You may definitely use my pic of his headstone for whatever you need to. Took me a bit to get his photo. I couldn't find it when I went back in the Spring and thought it had gotten covered over during the winter. When I went back yesterday looking for someone else I saw it and I could tell by the ground around it that they had just recently re-set it. Previously, the right side was sinking and it was partially buried. Anyway, I'm glad I could help and good luck with your project. My grandfather served in WWII.
Best, Stacey

If you are referring to James Albert Rudiger (1916-1997), he was my Great Uncle.

My Grandfather, the most humble man I'll ever know. When I'd talk of medals or heroic things they did as force members every time he'd say, "the real heros are in the ground over there". A man who never bragged or even taliked about what he and his comrades had done. A man that was of few. Shall Let those fearless men who lived on a higher ground than most of us live on forever in God's eye and heart. For only a men did what they did. But men of God they surely were. Men who fought to the death for these guys there was no surrender. Not by most at least. To rather fight to the death was who they were. I am so proud to be the Grandson on a true black devil. God bless them all!
