Bio and Links
Bio Photo      I enter records here on Find A Grave for two reasons: First to help others find the graves of lost family members and second to remember our War Hero's who have "Given Their All" for our country!

When creating bio's for our war veterans I strive to make them as "accurate" as possible using all the records I can find for them.

An American by birth, A Soldier & Christian by choice, and a proud American patriot!

Neglected graves are a shameful thing!

Some think the reason I put a link to this page on bio’s that I worked on for the below soldiers & sailors is because I want to be noticed. “Not True”. I do it because I want to take responsibility for what I’ve written in case there are questions. Simple as that.

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

I've completed the following States displaying World War II Soldiers & Sailors who died during the war:

Delawareans Who Gave Their All - WW II

Mainers Who Gave Their All - WW II

Marylanders Who Gave Their All - WW II

New Hampshirites Who Gave Their All - WW II

Vermonters Who Gave Their All - WW II

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

I'm currently working on Connecticut, the District Of Columbia, New York & Wyoming:

Connecticuter's Who Gave Their All - WW II

District Of Columbia's Who Gave Their All - WW II

New Yorkers Who Gave Their All - WW II

Wyomingites Who Gave Their All - WW II

If you'd like me to fix any of the records that I maintain ... please click on the "Edit" button on the top right of the record, click on "Suggest a Correction" ... Enter your note and/or correction and I'll fix them as quickly as possible.

When requesting a transfer use the edit tab on the memorial and follow the below from F-A-G.

From F-A-G

"Explain your relationship in the request! Any non-direct relatives (aunts, uncles, cousins, etc) are not required to be transferred. Keep in mind that the original contributor may also be related to the memorial and may not make the transfer. Bulk surname requests should not be made."

Also note from FAG rules:

"No photos of obituary's are allowed, No bio's in flower sections are allowed. The record added to the right cemetery first may stay and the burial unknown will be deleted regardless of the dates.

     I'm currently working on updating and entered Soldiers and Sailors who "Gave Their All" during World War II. To see more on this project please click on my website below...

     I originally started researching my Family Tree when my oldest son, Chris, came home from school one day and said that they had to write up their family tree as a project. This, of course, led me to many cemeteries and I quickly became interested in them also.

I've always enjoyed history and the two fell together.

     Again, If I've created a record that someone needs deleted (since some families do not want their loved ones on the internet) or that you want me to update please let me know and I'll be glad to update it for you.

Russ, please check into Sylvester Carl Weichenmaier.

The ranks don't match what you entered in the bio.

Russ - you are very welcome and thank you for all that you do to remember our fallen Americans. I could have stayed all day taking photos in that cemetery. It was an honor.
