The IWPP was created in September 2005 by Carina and Gary Nelson. Carina is Swedish born whose Grandfather served on the King's Guard of Sweden. Gary is a retired Staff Sergeant of the Washington DC Air National Guard, a retired Police Sergeant as well as retired from the Federal Government.
RECENTLY we have discovered a great number of images uploaded to our Memorial pages which were lifted from other web sites in violation of copyright laws. These will be reported to FindAGrave and the Contributor in question IMMEDIATELY when discovered.
Beginning May 28, 2012 Carina and Gary relocated to Osthammar, Sweden.
REGARDING THE MASS UPLOAD OF INTERMENTS FOR THE NATIONAL CEMETERIES: Recently the IWPP and its Associates uploaded around 800,000 names to the National Cemeteries. The upload is complete but due to spelling errors on the previous interments duplicates were created. The cemeteries are being checked for same but the IWPP can use additional help triaging the cemeteries for dupes. Any help and contribution to this effort is greatly appreciated.
Over the years several people have stepped forward and embraced the idea of the Project and either through the Project or their individual efforts have made a difference in recognizing the War Fallen and military Veterans the world over.
