Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been a high school US History teacher for the past 34 years, researcher, and collector of historical items, mainly military items. I love to take these items to show my students and others that history is something you can touch. I recently returned from a year in Afghanistan with the Indiana National Guard. I volunteered after being out of the military for over 25+ years. Talk about seeing history - I saw it!

For the past 31 years my students and myself have been looking for the families and friends of the 1621 Indiana casualties of the Vietnam War. We conducted all the research for the World War II,Korean and Vietnam Memorials in downtown Indianapolis, Indiana. We are presently raising money to build a Veterans Museum in Schererville, Indiana. If you can help please email me.

Walter Murzyn
Hi Tom, I'm curious as to where you obtained the photo of Walter Murzyn. He served with my father in WWII and was killed in the fighting around St. Genevieve, France.
Thanks, Jim

Transferred Peter Norris Pund to you as requested. Glad you can enhance his memorial and make history more real for students. From one teacher (retired) to another.

RE: photo
Sorry. I took the photos of David Colvin's grave site back in 2014. I don't keep photos that old. If you would like me to take some current photos and send them to you, just make a photo request on his name and I will take care of it. Let me know when you do that. You could just save those off of Find A Grave, if you would like. I only ask that you give me credit. Thanks.

RE: Richard O Wald
Thank you for your service. Your students are fortunate to have you for a teacher. I'll add another picture to the memorial and create memorials to other Ward family members that are in the same plot. JIM
