|Bio and Links|
I am Bob, 77 years old, living in the Armed Forces Retirement Home, Gulfport, Mississippi.|
I only use my electric bicycle and public transportation. I retired from the United States Navy on Friday May 13, 1977. I have always thought of Friday the 13th as my lucky day, and it still is.
I grant permission to use my photographs in all respectful means.
In July 2016 I photographed a cemetery in Puntarenas, Costa Rica and posted them on Find A Grave, Cemetario Carita.
I add interments when I find them, if they are from your family, I want to transfer them to you because you have more information than I do. If you are maintaining a section of military information elsewhere, I want you to maintain the memorial sites that I posted too. Again you have more info than I do. I will transfer for any or no reason.
I finished photographing the Lord Ridge Cemetery. I was unable to get a complete listing from the City Council. After that, I would have been able to tie in my photographs with the entire "population" of the cemetery. There would have been lots of photos of the headstones that would not be posted because about 90 percent are not available or has been damaged beyond decyphering. I am honored to have been able to post the memorial and headstone photograph of the "Father of his country, Belize" the Right Honorable George Cadle Price.
I am also happy to say that I have photographed every grave site at the US Soldiers' and Airmen's Home National Cemetery (up through October 2010) and the Battleground National Cemetery both in Washington, D.C.I have also Posted every grave site at St. Elizabeth's Hospital (West Campus). I photographed and posted all missing memorials and photos at Bethesda Cemetery, Camden, Arkansas. I did the same for Shiloh Cemetery, Union County, Arkansas. I have also photographed all the headstones at the Kanchanaburi War Memorial Cemetery Thailand (the POW Cemetery from the Thai Burma Railroad, Bridge on the River Kwai fame). I have photographed all of the headstones at Chungkai War Cemetery, another POW cemetery from the Thai Burma Railroad, Bridge on the River Kwai fame.
In December 2012, I photographed Labuan War Cemeteryand Labuan War Memorial, in Malaysia.
I photographed all of the headstones at Clark Cemetery, Philippines and have posted them, through December 2014.
One day I will be honored by my name being included on the Fallen Find-A-Grave Contributors Memorial.
I am also a War Graves contributor. https://twgpp.org/volunteers.php?volunteer=704&start=0&cid=93

I appreciate the plot location for a cousin (Mrs Vena Mavis Flynt Nevin # 172022472). So I must have the correct cemetery for her.

Hey, Bob! Thanks for the edit suggestions for Floral Hills. I will be happy to accept them. Could you tell me where you found the information on the plot name? I enjoyed your Bio. Your hard work is very much appreciated.
