Bio Photo "Freedom is not Free"

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

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."

*************************

I have recently 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 added and I made it a commitment to travel their annually to finish this project which I completed in 2013.

Interred at the cemetery are men and women from all branches of the service, US Marine Corp, US Army, US Navy, US Coast Guard, and US Merchant Marines. US Marines from the 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th, and 6th divisions are interred there, along with soldiers of the US Army's 6th, 7th, 11th Airborne, 23rd (Americal), 24th, 25th, 27th, 31st, 32nd, 33rd, 37th, 40th, 43rd, 77th and 96th infantry divisions.

They came from all of the Pacific war's most significant battles, beginning with several hundred internees who were lost at Pearl Harbor on December 7th, 1941. There are over a 1000 burials of men from the US Marine 3rd 4th, and 5th Divisions who died at Iwo Jima, which comprises the single largest group from one conflict.

The first burials at the cemetery were held on January 4, 1949, more than three years after the war in the Pacific had ended.

Jeff;

Thank you for creating a memorial for Ralph E. Manning, Jr. (Find A Grave # 56756571). He is a distant cousin of mine. I was wondering if you would be willing to link him to his father; Ralph Erskine Manning, Sr. (Find A Grave # 86690465), and mother; Jewell Ellen O'Toole Manning (Find A Grave # 94220705), on findagrave.com.

Thanks,


Matthew Harris

Photo of Grave Marker for Ray D Kittle
Jeff,

First of all, thank you for your dedication to photographing the grave markers at the National Military Cemetery at Honolulu. You are to be commended for helping to preserve the memory of those buried there.

I am preparing a biography for Ray D. Kittle for the West Virginia Veterans Memorial Project in Charleston, WV, and I need your permission to use the photograph of his grave marker. You will be given credit for the photo.

Thank you.
