Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been a high school US History teacher for the past 34 years, researcher, and collector of historical items, mainly military items. I love to take these items to show my students and others that history is something you can touch. I recently returned from a year in Afghanistan with the Indiana National Guard. I volunteered after being out of the military for over 25+ years. Talk about seeing history - I saw it!

For the past 31 years my students and myself have been looking for the families and friends of the 1621 Indiana casualties of the Vietnam War. We conducted all the research for the World War II,Korean and Vietnam Memorials in downtown Indianapolis, Indiana. We are presently raising money to build a Veterans Museum in Schererville, Indiana. If you can help please email me.

Check out these two links - Outstanding students.

RE: Arthur Turkstra
Honored to do so , I generally claim Vets who were killed in action. My small part to keep their sacrifice alive. I also posted his grave on the Vietnam Wall face memorial.

Edison A Harkins III
Mr. Clark,

Denice from Greenwood Cemetery made some calls and we believe that Mr. Harkins was moved to the Harkins Farm Cemetery in Marion County in Iowa. I hope this helps you. If you need any other pictures please don't hesitate to ask.

Edison A Harkins III
Mr. Clark,

The people at Greenwood Cemetery, Denice and Mark, have searched all their records and found that the gentleman that you are looking for was buried here. Unfortunately his family later decided to have his body moved to a cemetery in Iowa. I, as well as Denice are trying to find exactly where so you can update your records. He was buried in the Veterans Of All Wars Circle and then moved at some later date. I hope this helps you and if we find him we will definitely let you know.

RE: Harkins Grave Marker
I will check with the Sinai Temple which has burials at Greenwood Cemetery but they keep their own records. I don't know what the VVMF is.

No that's fine. I will put any info on this memorial that you want on there and can not get it on there yourself.
