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 headstone photos.

We respectfully request permission to use William's cemetery marker photo in our personal tree. William is Bruce's cousin and the photo will make a great addition to our tree.
Thanks for your consideration.

Jeff. Went to courthouse and found Gamache, but no VA. I will walk blocks soon and see if VA monument there. If not, I have the VA plots photographed and he may be there. I just haven't names them yet. Lynn

I have added two photos of Pvt. Haney's headstone which is hidden under a tree in the cemetery. The tree is also causing the headstone to sink. There is no telling what the tree is doing to the coffin. The cemetery crew said that the junk tree has to be taken down by relatives. Since he is a WWII veteran KIA, is there anything the VA or Marines can do?

Hi, thank you for your response. I have just created the cemetery online. It is the D Holcomb Cemetery, Letcher Co., Gordon. It is behind my uncle Hillard Halcomb's home along Linefork Creek. I see on the memorial the military burial certificate you have provided and it was signed by my Grandfather & Grandmother. Eugene was from a first marriage for my grandmother to Anthony Polly who had died of asthma. Have a good day & thanks for everything! Glen C Farmer.

Hi, I am Glen Farmer, find a grave #48162730. There are 3 memorials at the Halcomb Burying Ground that are not in the cemetery shown. The 3 that are of my family are buried at the Holcomb Cemetery, AKA Holcomb Burying ground, AKA D Holcomb Cemetery & not at the Halcomb burying ground where the memorial is now shone. They are up on the mountain in a steep area up behind the home of my uncle Hillard Halcomb in Gordon on Linefork Creek, which at one time was the home of my great grandparents Poppy D Holcomb & Letha Ann Robinett Holcomb. I have photos of all 19 headstones and the memorials shown in your cemetery is not in this one. The 3 in question are:
My uncle Lindell Gale Huff #42129738, no photo of headstone as of now.
My great grand uncle Anderson “Ance” Ingram #16933927, buried in an unmarked grave whose location I know.
My Uncle Eugene Polly #138850594, I have a photo of his headstone & you can see how steep the ground is.
Thanks for your help, Glen C Farmer.
