Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a retired Navy Command Master Chief with 22 years of Service including 2 tours in-country Vietnam and 1 in Desert Shield/Desert Storm. Most of my career was in helicopter Search & Rescue.
I was attached to Helicopter Attack (Light) Squadron Three, HA(L)-3, in Vietnam 1970-1972, and NAS Whidbey Island SAR 1974-1977 & 1980-1984, among other duty stations, and have been trying to track down the rest of the guys who were there. Unfortunately, I find way too many of them with this "Find A Grave" search feature.

Any photos I take for Find A Grave, I do not claim as exclusive or copyrighted and anyone can copy and use the photos for whatever purpose you desire except to "Photoshop" in such a way as to slander or disrespect. Dan

Clarence Davidson Edit Request
Hi Dan,
What an honor it is to add your information to the memorial for Clarence, thank you very kindly for sending it.

My brother also served in Vietnam (2 tours); he was in the SeaBees branch of the Navy and was fortunate to come home in one piece.

Again, thank you so very much.

Hi Dan,
Memorial info is correct according to the Veterans National Gravesite Locator. Not sure why headstone has 'C' for middle initial.

RE: Grave Photos for John Howard Kennedy
Hello Dan,
The other names inscribed on the back of the Woodruff headstone, along with the Kennedys, are Ruth's brothers and their wives: Gerald & Martha Woodruff and Dr. Raymond & Geraldine Woodruff. If the info for Mount Albion Cemetery on the Rootsweb site is correct, John Howard was cremated. So were Gerald, Martha, and Geraldine. Not sure about the others.
Bye for now,
Karen

RE: Request Transfer of 2 Memorials
Your request for the transfer of 3rd cousins once removed is way out of the guidelines for Find A Grave transfers. I don't even ask for Aunts, Uncles, or 1st cousins.

Transfer requests should be for direct relatives only within four generations. This would be your siblings, parents, grandparents, great-grandparents, children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren. Non-direct relatives relatives such as aunts, uncles, cousins and beyond are not required transfers. Those are the Find A Grave guidelines and I follow them. Thanks for your cooperation.
