Thank you!
Thank you for posting the picture of Uriah Mash's marker. I doubt I will ever get a chance to visit it in person, much as I would love to do that.

Photo of Andrew J. Barrett
Thank you ever so much for the work you have done taking photos of our loved ones who died in WWII. Andrew was my grandfather who I never got to meet. I had originally thought that this photo was posted by the military until I noticed your name today. I, for one, really appreciate your dedication to this. I am also an avid reader of WWII, however I have never been to Europe to be able to see the sites. The photos alone are haunting, I can't imagine having lived there at that time.

Anne Katherine Cullen
Is there a master file of those buried at Henri-Chapelle that you could search to see if Miss Anne Cullen is interred there? All records that I can find indicate that she was buried there but I can find no repatriation records for her. She was a nurse who was killed in 1944.
Here is a Find A Grave memorial for her:

Dear Sir; Thank you so much for posting the grave marker of my mother's only brother. He was so brave, knowing that he would not return from war, but going anyhow. Sincerely, Linda H.

Thank You-Peter Snoich
Dear Des,

I can't thank you enough for taking the time to photograph my Grest-Uncle, Peter Snoich's Grave in the Netherlands. He was born in Coaldale, PA, where there is a grave memorial reminding us of where Peter was buried in Margraten. Until I had dinner with a Dutch-American friend I did not know how well you, the Dutch, care and honor the American graves.

We think my uncle Peter died under friendly fire, but we don't really know. His parents emigrated to America from The Ukraine around the 1880s. peter was born in America.

I will figure out how to upload the grave marker that I have from his Pennsylvania family cemetery.

Sincerely,

Erica Elliott
