I am honored to create memorials for our WII, Korean, and Vietnam war dead.

16 Armored Divisions (11/16 completed)
4 Airborne Divisions (4/4 completed)
1 Cavalry Division (1/1 completed)
1 Mountain Division (1/1 completed)
6 Marine Divisions (6/6 completed)

Fleet Admiral Chester W. Nimitz:
"They fought together as brothers in arms; they died together and now they sleep side by side...To them, we have a solemn obligation — the obligation to ensure that their sacrifice will help make this a better and safer world in which to live."
In 2013 I completed a five year project traveling to Hawaii annually from the mainland to photograph headstones for all of our WW2 dead at the National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific (Punchbowl) in Honolulu. I have added over 10,000 photos to memorials at the cemetery. Prior to 2008, few of the memorials had a headstone photo.

|Gail A||RE: Nick K Nichols|
What do you think I should do about the additional photos?

|Gail A||Nick K Nichols|
Hi! I visited the Mount Zion Cemetery in Webster Massachusetts today and found the grave of Nick K Nichols. I uploaded the photo per your request. However, there is a little spin on this man. It appears that his "real" name is Nicholas Nicholopoulos. He is listed on the stone with, I believe are his parents. There is a Peter Nicholopoulos at the top and the name of the person requesting the headstone on Nick K Nichols was Peter Nichols. The photo I posted of Nick's grave is right next to the Nicholopoulos grave. I took panorama pics, front and back of the two stones. Please advise as to what you would like me to do with this info.

|Larry Luna||RE: Thank you|
Do you have any more photo requests at Calvary? Would you consider calling the cemetery and asking for plot locations? They're kind of on to me now, being a Find a grave volunteer. I've been going in and asking for locations as well as calling. One guy there commented sarcastically about my numerous family members to some of the other staff persons. Any kind of help you can provide will greatly facilitate getting requests fulfilled.
Is there any way to contact relatives, as I have a 5X7 Army photo I would love to get back to the family!!!!!

Hi, Jeff. If you look at the St. Stan cemetery photo, you see the entrance road goes down right and hairpins to exit on left. SGT Kielian rests in the second row from the hairpin turn on the left side in his family's plot.

|Raymond Gravelin||Lester Congdon bio|
I was from the same hometown as Lester. (Volutown, Connecticut)
Thanks for all the information about Lester's parents, his birth year, the photo of his stone marker, etc.
I was stationed in Pearl Harbor on a submarine rescue ship in the 60's. I visited the Punchbowl at that time, however I didn't know Lester was interred there then. I did see Ernie Pyle's marker.
|Mary Agnes Hammett||RE: Thank you|
You are very welcome. If you are military, or law enforcement, thank you for your service.
