Bio Photo "Freedom is not Free"

I am honored to create memorials for our WW2, Korean, and Vietnam war dead.

I am presently working on creating virtual cemeteries for every US WWII Infantry Division.


The Cost of Freedom:
American War and Military Operations

WW2 US Army Battle Deaths: 291,557
WW2 US Marine Corps Battle Deaths: 19,733
US Navy Battle Deaths: 36,950

Korean War US Army Battle Casualties: 29,856
Korean War US Marine Corps Battle Casualties: 4,509
Korean War US Navy Battle Casualties: 657
Korean War US Air Force Battle Casualties: 4,509

Vietnam War US Army Battle Casualties: 38,224
Vietnam War US Marine Corps Battle Casualties: 14,844
Vietnam War US Navy Battle Casualties: 2,566
Vietnam War US Air Force Battle Casualties: 2,586


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 a headstone photo.

RE: Question
Thanks Jeff. Alas, it seems that some people are just rude and inconsiderate and like to make up their own rules.

RE: Thank you
You are very welcome. Thank you for your work on behalf of our service members who sacrificed all. I added his parents sites and sent an edit request to link. His Mother was laid to rest beside him. I am sure she visited that site many times before she passed away. He was her youngest son according to census records and he was so young when he died. Thanks again. Dana

RE: Thank you
You're quite welcome Jeff. I don't know if you're looking for the family name or military status, but I have a decent amount of military personnel in my virtual cemeteries.

I am currently updating our cemetery records and trying to get a current listing of all the vets we have here...if you have such a listing I can compare our data to....that would be this time I have over 120 vets going back to the civil war..

RE: Question
Hi again Jeff,

May I ask if you have any strategies short of emailing the admins (which could take weeks to get a response) to deal with rude members on this site who refuse to approve edits for veterans to bear their rightful titles of 'SGT', 'PVT', 'PFC', etc.? Member 47179377 has consistently refused my edits for the aforementioned and has disabled her public messages, but callously mentions in her bio section that emails will not receive a reply if the sender doesn't include theirs; a bit hypocritical if you ask me. Anyway, I'm sure you've run into a similar situation, if not the same, so how have you dealt with rude members who make up their own rules?

Thanks Jeff for the compliment. I was also thinking about doing a full inventory of Ogden's Evergreen cemetery before winter sets in. It's only 63% photographed.

That's how I feel. Thanks Jeff!

Hi Jeff,

Quick question regarding veterans memorials. Do you feel it's required for a veteran to have died in combat for their memorial to say 'Pvt', 'Tsgt', etc.? I've made numerous memorials with those well-deserved titles that others have said I should remove since they "didn't die in combat." I don't agree with that, but was curious what your thoughts are.

Thank you,

RE: Thank you for the great photos!
My pleasure, Jeff. He was actually a few feet away from my great-grandparents! Talk about odds. I also found many other vets next to and around him, and photographed them as well.
