Many thanks for the photo. The family of his co-pilot is planning a visit to the site of the crash in the next few weeks.
Today, as you know, we commemorate the anniversary of D-Day. May we never again see death on such a scale.

Thank you so much, after all these years the extended family now has a photo of their dear uncle's resting place and where it is located. I can't wait to share it with them. Your service is much appreciated.

Thank you. I never knew my Uncle, but I am proud of him, and thankful for all of those, and you, who have remembered him for us in these United States. Thank you again, for the picture you have added for us. R.S. Drake, niece of Euel T. Drake

J'espere que vous parlez Anglais parce que je ne le parle que le Français un peu. S’il vous plaît pardonnez mes erreurs.

À un certain moment, vous avez visité le cimetière américain de Henri-Chapelle à Liège, en Belgique. Vous avez pris une photo de la pierre tombale de l’homme ci-dessus. Il était un cousin de mon père. Il meurt au combat pendant la seconde guerre mondiale et fut enterré en Belgique. À ma connaissance, je suis le premier membre de la famille de voir réellement ce que ressemblent sa pierre tombale et la beauté de son lieu de repos. Au nom de notre famille, je vous remercie.


At some point, you visited Henri-Chapelle American Cemetery in Liege, Belgium. You took a photo of the grave marker of the man above. He was my father's first cousin. He died in the fighting during World War II and was buried in Belgium. To my knowledge, I am the first family member to actually see his grave marker and the beauty of his resting place. On behalf of our family, I thank you.

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.
