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. ushistoryman@yahoo.com

Check out these two links - Outstanding students.

RE: PFC George Steven Sutt
Tom

I belong to the local DAR and we were given a list of 86 soldiers to find. I found locations for 72 in Indianapolis and other states. That leaves 14 unaccounted for. 2 of the 14 were drowning victims which were not recovered. They probably should be put on Find A Grave for their service.

I did find Melvin Sink at our local catholic cemetery, but wasn't able to find his grave due to the office staff's incomplete directions and all the leaves on the ground. I'll try again in the spring.

I also plan to find obits for all buried in the Indiana area.

I'll keep you posted on any more that are found.

Also, the person who added the headstone photo added it twice, may want to ask him/her to remove one photo. Again sorry for the delay!

Before I transferred this memorial to you I sponsored it so that you can add up to a total of 20 photos if needed instead of the usual five.
Also, unless Find A Grave has changed the rules the original maker of the memorial is the only person who can change the order of the photos so if you need help having any rearranged please contact me.
I watched the video of you and your students. I must say that is a marvelous thing you are doing. My eyes did not stay dry.

Hello,
Thank you for all of the wonderful photos that you added to Find A Grave Memorial# 141044612 of CDR Erwin, would you consider removing one of the like ones so that we can add a photo of his name on the tablet of the missing?
Thank you in advance, Sherry SH
