Bio

I started photographing Columbarium C17 about 2 years ago as the V.A. added memorial plaques to the Columbarium. I finished photographing C17 on Nov. 1, 2023 and am now photographing C18. I continue fulfilling volunteer request if the request come from friends and/or family.

Usually, for requests, I post a close up photo, a distant photo, a section photo and may be a few photos from different angles. Family members and friends have sent me many emotional messages thanking me for the photos of the area that their family member or friend are buried. However, if you don't want the photos, I will remove unless you're one of those FAG obsessives that find managing memorials an important part of your life (if it is an important part of your life, you should seriously consider seeking therapy). This isn't a completion. I fulfill volunteer photo request at the Houston VA to honor our families and those that served our country. Both my wife and I are veterans. All the male members of both our families have served. My father in law got a battlefield commission after the battle of the Hurtgen Forest with the 5th Armored and my mother in law landed at Utah Beach on June 17, 1944 with the 67th Evac Hospital.

There are grave locators at the Houston VA, which has over 100,000 memorials, but It is also easy to find the location of a grave online for veterans and their spouses buried in USA VA cemeteries at the website: https://gravelocator.cem.va.gov

Sometimes I will post a blurry photo. It is because it was a headstone in the background of another shot. I figure a blurry photo is better than no photo. If you are family or friends of the person on this memorial, don't hesitate to ask for a new photo.

Please do not post any obits to my memorials. I'd prefer a bio about a persons life, instead of an obit because the information there becomes dated. Also, please do not post any death certificates on the memorial pages I maintain.

Feel free to use any photos of cemeteries or headstones that I have uploaded to FAG.
