Bio Photo I'm addicted to Genealogy so my wife says. I've been doing it for about fifteen years. Taking pictures of all the kin I never got to meet. We were told we were the last of the Reece's "NOT"!! I started out with about ten names and have over six thousand five hundred. I'm really glad there are people who will help you with your research. FindAGrave is another tool for newcomers to Genealogy and Veterans. If you find any errors or would like for us to correct the info that was supplied to us please use the edit tab then the suggest a correction (SAC) bar. My brother Jim & Rosa King and I are currently working on all the NC Vietnam KIA/MIA's Grave sites. After 8 years of searching, we've located all of the resting places for these brave men & women who paid the ultimate price, over 1900 of them. This doesn't mean we are idle. Now we are looking for their photos. The search for all Vietnam KIA/MIA's goes on !A veteran who has served honorably in a time of war may bear the title of the highest grade held during that war. This right is conferred by Congress in law by 10 US Code 772 Section (e) .

Non combat casualties
I have noted in my research that a great number of those that severed in Vietnam had early deaths. My cousins husband died of effects from agent orange, my next door neighbor died of the same source and a friends husband is suffering from the same exposure. Yesterday I came across a Vietnam vet (16209857) who died just shy of his 40th birthday. All I could learn was he died of natural causes. I know you are far more versed in these matters, but I have long felt those person who died from exposure to agent orange should be listed as post casualties of that great mistake we call Vietnam. What are your thoughts on this subject.

Thanks for the great work you have done to honor and remember those that served.

re: Jimmie Lee Jefferson photo
Thank you for adding a photo of Corp. Jimmie Lee Jefferson to his memorial # 135649767. I added a better quality photo of his gravestone tonight and saw that, just yesterday, you had added a photo of him. How wonderful! I am not the manager of his memorial but I really like it when a photo of the person is included. I thank you for your time and commitment to posting photos of our KIA/MIA's. With appreciation, Judi

MSgt John Henry Gregory
I was a Marine Security Guard at the Embassy in Cambodia. The Embassy employees were playing softball when we were attacked by 2 khmer rouge rebels. MSgt. Gregory, Sgt.Wayne Turberville and a young Cambodian girl were killed. Many others were wounded. I was in centerfield when the bombs went off. I then went to where everyone was injured. I found MSgt Gregory lying on the pavement. I laid down by him and held his head up off the pavement. He was with me for a short time and then he passed away. Even though I never knew him, I felt that I have always had a connection with him. I am so glad that I found him here at last. May he Rest in Peace.
