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. I took the last headstone photos in 2013.

Dear mister Hall,

my name is Erwin de Mooij and I am the content webmaster for the 457th Bomb Group Association website.

At this moment I am working on a virtual cemetery/memorial on the website honering all 339 KIA/MIA/KIS of the group.

I saw your picture of Reed Simpson's grave marker and I was wondering if I could use it for the memorial. If you made any other photos of 457th BG members would I be able to use these too?

We would greatly appreciate it.

Best regards,

Erwin de Mooij

Dear Jeff Hall:

What a worthy endeavor! I recall the awesome and reverential feeling my husband and I had visiting the Punchbowl in the early '70's. He "visited" there as well as a sailor in 1945. Since I didn't get "hooked" on genealogy until the late '90's, we had no idea he had a relative memorialized there.

I am currently compiling in hard copy the Cheadle family history of which the above is a descendant (6th great grandchild of the progenitor, George Chedel/Cheadle). My mother-in-law was a Cheadle. I would respectfully request permission to reproduce the portrait photograph on this memorial site, as well as any others you contributed which may pertain to our line. Credit would be given such as “Courtesy, Jeff Hall, contributor, Find A Grave Memorial # ?.” unless you prefer something else. I'll glad use whatever you wish. Where no credit is requested, I use “Courtesy of Find A Grave contributor who wishes to remain anonymous.”

If I do not receive a response by May 30 I will presume you have no objections to either my request or crediting you as I have described. While I would prefer to hear from you, please know that this “deadline” is not meant to push you to a decision but to perhaps save you a little time by not having to respond? I want to cover all my bases to be certain I offend no one and I also believe in giving credit where credit is due.

My treatise is in no way a profit making project and will not (by my request) be posted on the internet nor will living individuals be included to the best of my ability.

You have no idea how much we who are of an age (I’m 86) or distance and cannot do the hands-on research we once did appreciate the effort and passion of you who contribute your research information to the Internet. Many thanks from an old lady.
