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.

You have listed a lot of Vietnam Veterans. The Vietnam Veterans Memorial Fund is looking for photos of 22 from Indiana. I don't know if you can help them. If you can, I will send you the names.

Hello, I'm going to post a photo but wanted to apologize ahead of time for the condition of the stone. It was under a solid layer of frozen leaves and it took a couple of days to loosen it and let the sun do its work. This photo is the best I can do for now but I will wait until spring when the ground is thawed and I will uncover the stone completely and take a better one. I have taken photos for many of the KIA's at Union and will be sure to get a very nice photo for to honor this young Marine and his family members buried next to him. Thank you for requesting the photo and for your service.
