Thanks so much for posting the photo of my cousin Arthur James Frigerio's grave. You may wish to know a bit about him. He was born 24 Sept 1925 in New Orleans, the only child of James Joseph Frigerio and Marie Lorine Hardy. His father died young, in 1937. Arthur lived with his mother, grandmother and maiden aunt. He attended a catholic high school, but dropped out after three years to enlist in the Air Corps on 25 June 1943. After his plane went down in Samara, it took the government several years to figure out what happened to him and his comrades. He was declared MIA. His mother and other family members were tortured by not knowing his fate for five years. Finally, the remains were found and shipped to the U.S., when the memorial ceremony and interment was held at Jefferson Barracks National Cemetery in 1950. His mother traveled from New Orleans to Missouri to attend.

Dear mister Kreft,
my name is Erwin de Mooij and I am the content webmaster for the 457th Bomb Group Association website.
At this moment I am working on a virtual cemetery/memorial on the website honering all 339 KIA/MIA/KIS of the group.
I saw your picture of Harold Gay's and Earl Johnson's grave marker and I was wondering if I could use it for the memorial. If you made any other photos of 457th BG members would I be able to use these too?
We would greatly appreciate it.

Would you be willing to transfer Ben G. Wilson (II) to me, please? This is a 1st cousin 1x removed and I am also trying to get his father transferred from another member as well.

|Jan Bos from Nijmegen, Holland||Lt Raymond A. Runzel and crew|
1st Lieutenant Raymond A. Runzel was pilot of a C-47 tail number 42-68714 and participated in "operation Fustion". The mission for the group [60th Troop Carrier Group] was dropping British paratroopers during the night of 13-14 July 1943 on a dropzone south of Catania, Sicily. The plane was shot down by enemy anti-aircraft fire. All crewmembers were killed and buried in the temporary American GELA Cemetery in Sicily,[group burial]. The men could not be identified individually. After the war the remains of the menw were repatriated and reburied in the New Albany National Cemetery, Indiana in grave F-264-265 [group burial]
I am writing a book about the GELA Cemetery, where over 1,200 men and women were buried between July 1943 and April 1947. Hope to finish my book this year, 2015
You took a picture of the grave and I would like your permission to use the picture for my book project, of course you will be credited and notified when the book is finished

|Frank J Hosna||RE: Koch Tubercular Hospital Cemetery|
I created this profile for the same cemetery but a different cemetery name and the moderator corrected and combined all the graves into one cemetery name. That is why there are two pictures. I take pictures that show more than the face of the stone, I show some of the background so people can see the surroundings and find the stone easier in the older cemeteries.

Hanson was the first husband of my husband's aunt. From the memorial photo it looks like it might have been multiple losses at the same time, is there anything else on the marker that may indicate what happened?
