"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.

Your most welcome. One of their other son's was good friends with me, and he is buried down the road at St James The Apostle Cemetery. The family lived across the VFW Parkway from St. Joseph's Cemetery on Atlantis St. I grew up in Roslindale and West Roxbury as a kid.

You are very welcome. I look at this as a small way to honor those who have defended our freedom.

This individual is buried at Mother of God CEMETERY in Kenton Vale, Kenton County, Kentucky, not at Mother of God CHURCH in Covington, Kenton County, Kentucky. Thanks for correcting this.

You are most welcome for the photos. I
have been working to get the entire cemetery added to F.A.G., but I see you have a much larger mission.
God bless you and keep you safe in your travels.

Would you please add the headstone photo you have for Find A Grave Memorial# 3774414 (Joseph Steven Feher) to his wife's memorial (Find A Grave Memorial# 137946537, Rose K. Ostrovic Feher) which I just added.
