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."
In 2013 I 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.

Also. I wondered if you would like to contribute to a bio for Prager. WV Archives is looking for volunteer writers of bios of veterans from WV who w were KIA or MIA. I have written a couple and am working on a third. You already have a nice write up for Prager, so I wondered if you would like to contribute to WV Archives. http://www.wvculture.org/history/wvmemory/vets/vetbios.html. you can also search the database for more about Prager. I will put you in contact with the person who coordinates volunteers if you're interested. There is a wide range of bios. Some are only about military service, but others talk about the families as well, if any info is available. Cindy

You are welcome. Did you notice the different birth dates on the two military markers?

ShaneO thought that it was in "O 875" but on my investigation of the original military interment request the location was listed as "Q 875". I checked for Q 875 and there is a different person (actually a couple) buried there. But ShaneO said that he got the memorial information from the photo or the photo matched the memorial at some point (except for the location apparently). I was able to update it with the birth date since he only had the death date. That is all I know.
Jeff thank you so much for recording all the graves of our fallen hero's. They should NEVER be forgotten. I had the honor of going abord the USS Alabama and seeing all the names of the fallen. The minuite i stepped abored her I could feel thier energy. Some people look at me like i am nuts but you can feel them. To this day it makes me cry. Please keep up the good work. J

Do you still have the headstone photo for Vincent W Novak, Find A Grave Memorial# 154517300? According to "ShaneO", the photo was deleted by Findagrave during a merger.
This memorial has an outstanding photo request.
