|Bio and Links|
These heroes are dead. They died for liberty - they died for us. They are at rest. They may or may not sleep in the land they made free, under the flag they rendered stainless, under the solemn pines, the sad hemlocks, the tearful willows, and the embracing vines. They sleep beneath the shadows of the clouds, careless alike of sunshine or of storm, each in the windowless Place of Rest. Earth may run red with other wars - they are at peace. In the midst of battle, in the roar of conflict, they found the serenity of death. I have one sentiment for soldiers living and dead: cheers for the living; tears for the dead. |
~ Robert G. Ingersoll

For me a simple attribution, © Michael V. Drachman 2000-2015 works for any of my bio's for personal use. (Pictures ©).
Should you use my pictures and wish to publish them elsewhere, say Ancestry or other similar PAY sites, please,, Post the link to the site here at Find A Grave..
Please remember that even though Ancestry has acquired Findagrave, Ancestry is a pay site, posting pictures there, or similar pay sites, transfers your ownership, like FB. This is mentioned (in very fine print) in all of their disclosures.
Findagrave was built by thousands of volunteers who's time was donated for the benefit of family members and friends,,who in many cases are not able to visit the resting places of their family members. These efforts were always intended to be free of charge and should remain that way,,,,,
"I have a burr under the Saddle on this one" that being pay sites "profiting" from Volunteers work....
In the end, never let yourself become complacent to those who have went before us. Always make time to remember the sacrifices that have been made for us by our Ancestors.
Never forget the Men and Women of our Armed Forces who have guarded our Constitution with their lives, some giving all to secure our rights, liberties and freedoms.
Remember the 100's of thousands soldiers who never came home, many who lie in a unmarked graves, never found or a foreign cemetery as that would indeed make those lives,, lost in vein... Reach out,, honor a Veteran.
Allow us not to embrace any politician. aristocrat, celebrity, who in the name of change, forgets or attempts to direct us to think otherwise..
A Nation which forgets its Defenders,
will itself be forgotten ..
.. God bless America..

Would you mind replacing the picture of Vern in uniform with another, higher res picture, that I would supply you for posting. It is a picture taken at the same photo shoot, but with Vern's wife, Lenora pictured next to him. Or. both can stand in the memorial. (I am Lenora's cousin.)

If things go as planned we will be at Epinal for the Memorial Day ceremony. That is our goal. However, we may be in Brittany and would go to St. James on Memorial Day. We know the director and assistant director quite well.
Epinal has also interested me because that is where Emile Durkheim grew up. Although he is buried in Paris, his family members are buried in the Epinal Jewish cemetery. His moving from Epinal to Paris set the foundation for his books which became the foundation of sociology--and carried over to influence the developing field of sociology, along with criminology, in the USA.
I think I will devote some time to writing a bio of Ralph Barone this evening.
Where are you located. France (Alsace/Lorraine) or Germany?
I forgot to add. I have all the radio logs for Group Hq and both squadrons, minute by minute transcribed. I have the after action reports, morning reports, and the 1:25000 maps they used. And, of course, my father's memoirs and many letters. Occasionally my wife and I still find the fox holes dug at certain coordinates.
We are in the middle of finally recovering the remains of the last trooper who was killed on 2 August 1944. It has taken a tremendous amount of work to locate the remains in a French forest. Ground radar and cadaver dogs have pinpointed the remains. We are waiting for JPAC to exhume soon.
