Danke Shoen for James Elmer Theisen memorial #121604868
Just a quick note to express my heart-felt appreciation for you work in creating this Find A Grave memorial. I am currently working on a project to honor the "Gold Star" families from my home town for Memorial Day this year.

As a "recovering" Nam vet... your details helped me immensely & this guy has to salute your efforts. Semper Fi, Marine!

Namaste, "PJ" Braun, ETCM/USN (retired)

I am Robert's foster sister. Thank you for posting his information. However, the woman you have posted as his mom is not her(I put a edit). His mom name is Amelia (Katavolos) Martin born 1918 died in the late 2000's. His brother Paul passed away in Dec 2010.
Thank you again.

Hi Victor,
First Thanks for all of your wonderful work on the Oakland County boys who died in Vietnam. I am needing help on Robert Millan, the Coffelt Report states he is buried in Roseland Park, in Berkley, MI. You have him in an Ohio Cemetery. I want to request a photo, but not sure what to do at this point. Let me know what you think.

Victor, please note that the headstone lists his name as Logan, not Turner. However, this is the correct stone according to the cemetery staff. There was a B. Mercedes Turner next to him, born 1926 died 1970. I have added a memorial in case you are interested.

Hi Victor,
I had this memorial from PA-Lady. Since you have a small bio of him, I have transferred him to you for the photos on this memorial.
