Bio and Links
Bio Photo Hello I'm John T. Griffith, born in Oceanside California, a Viet Nam War US Army MP Veteran and a former CHP Officer. In September 2002, I assisted the National Archives Center, Missouri, in replacing lost and destroyed US Army files. It was during that research project I discovered Find A Grave, wanted to be a part of it's concept and became a member. I have always had a passion for history and the people who have lived it. People in everyday life who through the needs and demands of their times shaped the world. I believe each day is a gift and the best part of any day is that day. I'm also a professional musician and have shared the stage with many named artists. In addition, I'm a vintage guitar expert have contributed, plus co-wrote for many vintage guitar books and articles in Vintage Guitar magazine about the subject. Plus a photographer, writer and historian, for the San Diego Reader. I will gladly transfer any of my bios to relatives or folks with a concerned interest. I, my wife Mary and our Dachshund "Timmy", reside in Vista, California. Thanks and best regards, John

RE: Earl Medlock
Thank you for the transfer - I will be a good keeper of his site. Earl had a brother, Leonard, that also died in battle in Japan.
Earl in Dec 1944 and Leonard May of 1945.
Got to appreciate the price they paid for the freedom we have today. And Thank you for your "service" also.
Thanks again. God Bless and do Take Care.

Hi John thank you for the Picture of J.B. Plummer, even though he is a distant cousin, it is great to put a face with a name. Especially when they have died in the service of our country.
And thank you for your service

Thank you for contacting me so soon. I never knew the guide lines for famous people. Good to know!
My grandfather was inducted in to the Texas Sports Hall of fame as well as the World Golf Hall of fame. I did get to go to that and watch my grandmother and my uncle accept the award for him.
Take care and happy holidays!

I was my privilege to sponsor Hildy. She has the sweetest face. Yes, I'm an animal person. Can't resist them.
