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.

Charles Sedam
I recently came upon this memorial while looking for info regarding Charles Sedam's air corps service. Can you tell me where you found the photo showing him standing near the brick wall in what looks like his air corps uniform? Do you have any info that you can share with me about his service? I'm involved in assembling a data base of names of men who served with the 7th Bomb Group in India-Burma during WW2 and would appreciate any assistance you can offer.

Thank you.

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.

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.

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.
