Reply Martin Thornburg 96343520
Hi Thom,

Until you contacted me, I was unaware of the Memorial 96343520
I don't know if you have encountered this before, I haven't. It is 2 memorials for the same person. "But" Randy is buried in Arlington. Can they be merged?
How does this get solved??

Randy's mother Ivona, is my friend of 30 years.

Randy is not buried in "Bushnell". He was cremated and his parents kept his remains. Last year when his father, Sgt Martin Randolph Thornburg, II died, he was cremated and his remains sent to Arlington, Randy's remains were sent at the same time and they are both resting in Arlington, a place has been requested in advance so that Ivon, can be placed with them
when the time comes.

Randy is not buried in Bushnell!

I am an Army brat and my parents are buried in Arlington, I am also an Army wife, if there is still space when our time comes, my husband and I qualify to rest in Arlington. All my life has been spent in the Army, until my husband retired with 27 years service. We recently lost our eldest son to cancer, and we have his remains, I have made his memorial on Find A Grave, according to the rules. My fathers brother served in the Pacific theater in the Navy in WW2 and my Uncle Chet was a survivor of the Bataan Death March. With great pride, I have traced my military family back to Col Henry Filkins in the Revalutionary War.
Find A Grave is a wonderful site.

I await your reply

Sincerely

Marilynn
