"Freedom is not Free"

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

In May 2017 I completed a 4 year project creating virtual cemeteries for all American Ground Forces casualties during WWII.

65 Infantry Divisions (65/65 completed)
16 Armored Divisions (16/16 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.
