"Freedom is not Free"|
I am honored to create memorials for our WW2, Korea, and Vietnam war dead.
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."
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, 37th, 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.

Would you please add the headstone photo you have for Find A Grave Memorial# 3774414 (Joseph Steven Feher) to his wife's memorial (Find A Grave Memorial# 137946537, Rose K. Ostrovic Feher) which I just added.

Thank you. I knew Herbert for 21 years and it brings back so many wonderful memories for me.
Herb was very proud of his older brother. As I was thinking about him, I remember that he told me he went to visit Pearl Harbor one time. When I found that FindaGrave I thought I would add to the record since there is probably no one else to do it. So sad. May he rest in peace. I hope all our servicemen can be honored. They gave their lives so we can be safe.
Thank you again.

Thanks. I'll upload Devine's photos. I assume the 2 Liberatores were brothers? If you know.
