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. To my knowledge I am the only contributor to Find A Grave undertaking such a project.

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.
1LT Charles A Rosenblatt Jeff, I would suggest editing the burial location for this individual. Hartford Mutual Society Memorial Park was dedicated in 1967, so he couldn't have been buried in 1944. I believe the cemetery he was buried in is Workman's Circle Branch 15. I am transcribing all the interments at the Hartford Mutual Society Memorial Park.
RE: Thank you John Winnekins was my husbands mothers brother. My husband was named JOHN in remembrance of her brother John and we have the flag that was on his coffin. Even though John Winnekins never had any descendants, I didn't want him to be forgotten.
Thank you for all the hard work you have done to keep our troops not to be forgotten.
If there is any thing I can do to help you in the Green Bay, WI area, just let me know.
Donald Chambers Mr. Hall, We have been researching soldiers from Teaneck for two years now and recently came upon your entry for Find a Grave. His story is one that has been elusive for us so we were pleased to obtain some new leads from your entry.
We believe his mother died in Ramsey, New jersey in 1985. We'd be happy to collaborate with you to flesh out the story of this soldier from Teaneck.

PFC John Czinki GREAT JOB! I love your commitment to honor the military in Punch Bowl. I have actually been there! I want you to take a look at your memorial for PFC John Czinki - I found a newspaper article printed in Detroit and felt compelled to post it on your memorial for him.

RE: My uncle, Corporal Hugh J. Yeman Hi Jeff! Yes, I have pending changes for that memorial, as well as a request to manage it. I'm new to FindAGrave, so I don't know what kind of turnaround time to expect. It's been a few days with no response from its manager. I figure I'll wait a week and then follow up.
My uncle, Corporal Hugh J. Yeman Hi Jeff, and thanks for your work. I was happy to see that the information I posted in my tribute to my uncle Hugh had made it into your memorial (# 160770897).
I was going to suggest that you remove your memorial because it's a duplicate of # 65560820, which includes the correct cemetery. But now that I see what you're doing, I don't know. Maybe for the purposes of your virtual cemetery it makes sense to have duplicate records that you manage. Let me know what you think.
