Staff Sgt Larry Welsh
Hello Eddie,
Amazing how fate keeps SSGT Larry Welsh in the Memories of others. I have his POW-MIA Bracelet that I bought in 1970 and now my Grandson is doing his thesis on the Vietnam War and using it with his presentation. I am asking for permission to use the photo you have posted of Larry for the little Memorial Photo I made for my Grandson's project. I will add it to Larry's Memorial also, but if you want me to remove it, let me know and I will do so. If you want to keep it, you may put it in any order you wish.

So many more people will learn about SSGT Larry Welsh and say prayers for him and his family. God will never let Larry be forgotten for his bravery and giving his life to help others. God bless the Welsh families and Eddieb, the creator of this wonderful Memorial!

Thank You so much!!
Carole Whittemore
(P.S. I would have sent the photo to your email address for approval but there wasn't one available.)

You can find information on Robert, on the "Virtual Wall"

Also, go to the following memorial,

Memorial# 158898610 of (1LT James E. Hunsicker), there you will find a picture of the headstone engraved with the soldiers names who are MIA. they are all named on this headstone in the Honolulu Memorial cemetery.

Hope this will help. Have a Blessed Day.

Rosario Abbate
I see you were looking for Rosarios relatives. I am working with the VVMF to find a picture of Rosario. If we could find any picture of him or where he graduated from high school it would be very helpful. I tried contacting the cemetery to find what funeral home or church handled his service and they could or would not give me this information. There is no information about him on the Coffelt database other than what you have written. Any help anyone has would be greatly appreciated. If you know of any veteran's group who could help...

Lt Terry L. Reed, KIA Viet Nam 1969
I have had Lt Terry L. Reeds POW/MIA bracelet since 1970 when I joined the US Army. Although shot down in 1969, I recently learned that his remains were recovered in 1994 and identified in 1998. He was buried at Ft Sam Houston National Cemetery in San Antonio, Texas, his home of record state. I was on many funeral details when stationed at Ft Sam in 1971, and I am happy that Terry has come home. I would like to send his bracket to his wife at the time of his death 47 years ago Sharon A. Reed of Cooper, Texas. If anyone knows how to contact her or any other surviving family member please let me know, thank you.

Joseph Widener - Memorial#117450042
I noticed your message to my Uncle Joe and I just wondered if you had a photo of him. I have never met Uncle Joe but I found a very old family picture and I think that it is possible that the picture was Uncle Joe.

Thank you for any help,

Thank you for connecting Joseph's son to him. I also connected his son Ralph today.
Joseph has a very sad story.
I found his death certificate & he was found dead on the second story of an abandoned home suffering the effects of drinking rubbing alcohol.
No one ever talked about the effects of coming back from the war back then. There was no such thing known of PTSD like they list today. It doesn't say that is way he drank. That I am just guessing about.

Thank you for posting the recovery article on Rodney's page on Find-a-Grave; however, the right side is cut off so not all the words are visible. Please, could you email me a complete copy?

Grateful for all you do for Find-a-Grave.

Thank You for the work that you do.

I was just looking at Find A Grave Memorial# 91379641 for Gordon M. Gunhus. Seems he and I were (are) 4th or 5th cousins. He and I were in-country at the same time.

I am updating the Lien Lineage (97 pages) and the lineage stops at generation 5, occassionally maybe some in generation 6.

I was completely blown away when I saw the memorial that you left for my cousin. There was a big difference in our age and I never got to meet him although he was my first cousin. Thank you soooo much for the details of his last day. I also did not know that he was married. I recently had someone contact me via ancestry trying to find family members.

Thank you

Sgt David Marshall Winters
No thanx's is necessary for sponsoring Sgt Winters memorial. I was able years ago to return a POW/MIA bracelet to a family years ago & it brought me to my knee's(we're still in touch even after all these years)so now I'm hoping to find Sgt Winters family w/the hopes of returning his bracelet to them as well.

Would you kindly consider transferring his memorial to my care # 47841402 & if not,I do & will understand :-)

Have a great day,

~ Beth ~
