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: 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.

At this time I don't feel like I want to transfer the memorial.

I am happy to make the transfer and I am aware of the wonderful job you and your classes are doing. I am with the Portage Historical Society and I'd like to make a copy of any and all Portage servicemen you have information on. Thanks again. We still are not done with reading Calvary Cemetery. It is huge.

HI Tom,

I appreciate what you are doing and I thank you for your service to our great Country.
I would rather hold on to the memorial until family steps forward as there is some in the area here.

Keep up your great work and please take care

RE: Ramon P. Cancel
Hi Thomas,

The information I put on his memorial is this, A
bridge over the Deep River in the Lake Station
neighborhood where Ramon grew up was named the PFC Ramon Pena Cancel Bridge.

Hope that helps or perhaps contact his parents about it. If you do would you ask them where his is buried? and what school he attended and graduated from?
