I have came across your memorials and remembrances many times in my work on the 236 Oakland County,Michigan KIA's from Vietnam. Thank you for your dedication to remembering these young men who gave ALL. Please feel free to view my virtual cemetery for the Oakland county me, and the 1-8 Jumping Mustangs for which my husband served.

Best Regards,

You made a very nice memorial for Royce Wilson, so I thought you would like to know I posted his obituary at Find A Grave Memorial# 134849392.

Thank you - Photo
Dear Victor,
Thank you for posting the photo on the excellent memorial for Lance Cpl Steven M. Henry (1946-1967).
Steve was my cousin. When I was little, he taught me how to make paper airplanes. I'm also glad there are now links to his parents on the memorial.
Thanks again and best wishes,
Christine Roane

Victor: Per your request I added photo of LCpl Smith's memorial. As info, I had no problem with original photo displaying on Find A Grave. Thanks for you work with Find A Grave, especially your dedication to fallen veterans.

I posted a new photo for Paul David Myers, 70044869. So...What do you think "NCM" on the stone means.

Non Combat Mortality ?????

You are welcome, glad I found it on the first try! I love photographing the military stones! He deserves a building named for him, thanks for the info.

I sent you a correction because you spelled it wrong. It is Parkhurst, not Parkhust.
