Bio and Links
Bio Photo 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, 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.

"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." Admiral Chester W. Nimitz

National Memorial Cemetery Of The Pacific
Hi Jeff! I want to thank you for posting the grave of Edward Clayton Jones. He was a marine killed in Okinawa. He is buried at The National Memorial Cemetery Of The Pacific. He was my Dad's older brother. My dad never got to see Ed's grave, or the cemetery where he is buried. Thanks to you, I was able to find what you posted, and send the link to my dad so he could see it. My dad passed away in June 2013, and I'm so glad that he was able to see those pictures. Thank you,

RE: Corp Vincent A Pugliese Information
My pleasure - in my spare time I review WWII military obits and try to match them up with the burials on find-a-grave.

PFC Archie L Ve(a)rnado
I recently received your request for a photo of PFC Vernado's marker. I also noticed that the request was withdrawn, probably because you found the correct spelling. Anyway, I had to go to Arcola-Roseland today, so I added some photos to PFC Varnado's memorial page. Someone had been doing some cleaning, so his stone was very white and the area was tidy.
BTW, at the time of his death his wife was Ruby E. Varnado of Plaquemine, Louisiana.

RE: PFC Robert M Simpkins Photo
It's my pleasure, Jeff. Unfortunately, I didn't see the note you put on the request until after I'd already gotten back home, so I didn't take a general vicinity photo - that's why I put in the exact location for his plot, so that someone will know exactly where to find him.

Hope that help, and you are most welcome!
