Permission Photo Request
Dear Des,
I am presently working on a project honoring the soldiers from my hometown who gave the ultimate sacrifice. May I have your permission to use the image from SSGT George J. Ferenchak’s, 2nd Lt. Robert S. Smith’s, and PFC Lloyd E. Zimmeran’s memorials in the Henri-Chapelle American Cemetery with credit being given to you? Thank you for your consideration and thank you for what you do.

Hello Des,

Thank You from the bottom of my heart for adding a picture of my Uncle Glenns grave. It really means a lot to the family. I have recently read letters that my uncle had written while in WW2. They really touched me. A family from the Netherlands had written my grandparents when my uncle was killed and said how they admired him. My sister and myself are now on a quest in hopes of reconnecting with that family and planning a quest over the Atlantic to the Netherlands from California. Even if we don't get to reconnect with that family, we still plan to come just to visit my uncles grave. Thanks again.

Des, thank you so much for adding the photograph of my Uncle Sandy's grave. His brother Frank first visited his grave when it just had a wooden cross. Frank is now 91 and had not seen this new grave stone in a number of years. I have posted some photos from Frank to the record. Thank you again. Linsey x

Thank you for photographing the grave marker for my uncle and namesake, Stephen Zoradi. He is interred at Margraten, and I have traveled there to pay my respects. I appreciate you honoring the US soldiers who lost their lives by posting the photographs.

Hello Des,

Thank you very much for the photo. I am most appreciative.

His name is George Marcus on the Australian Roll of Honour and was ex RAAF before he joined the RAF.

I will contact the CWGC and advise them of the Transcription error.

Keep up the good work.
