Please delete the photo of his headstone (and any others) that you copied from the ANC Explorer website. While that website states that its photos are for public use, Findagrave prohibits grave photos not taken by the member posting them. If you want a photo of his headstone (and any others), just make a photo request, and it will be fulfilled in a couple of days, or send me a list with memorial numbers, and I'll go out and get them. Thank you.

Hi, Victor!

Would you happen to have any family information of PFC Edward Kenneth Miller. My friend and I are building a memorial for all those who graduated from our school, St. Augustine Prep, and lost their life in the military. We would like to contact his family. Thanks!

INTERESTED
I WAS WONDERING WHERE YOU ARE FROM. I TAKE MANY, MANY PICTURES OF OUR VETERAN'S GRAVES. I HAVE FOUND ALOT OF INFORMATION ON THE VIETNAM MEMORIAL WALL. I WAS GOING THROUGH MY LIST OF OUR SOLDIERS FROM WHITLEY COUNTY INDIANA THAT WERE KILLED IN VIETNAM TO MAKE SURE ALL OF THEIR MEMORIALS ARE COMPLETE WITH BIO'S, DATES, PICTURES ETC. I NOTICED THAT YOU HAVE ADDED SOME PICTURES. ARE THERE ANY OTHER RESOURCES THAT YOU CAN TELL ME ABOUT TO GET INFORMATION ON OUR FALLEN SOLDIERS OR VETERAN'S? THANK YOU FOR YOUR TIME, JODIE HAYES...SOUTH WHITLEY, INDIANA

Sir, I am looking to contact anyone who was with my friend, LCpl John David Williams, KIA 22 SEP 1966 in Thua Thieu. John and I were close friends in high school & I was at his service at his grave site. I want to know details of the day he died. I am a VN vet too so I've seen most if not all the tragedies of war.
But I've also come to a time in my life that I now want details. If you can help me in any way I would deeply appreciate it.
Thank you for your service, OOH-RAH

I was impressed that you found a picture of this hero. How did you manage this? I'm with the DAR in Beech Grove and we are working on trying to locate all the Indiana soldiers who died in Vietnam.

Dear Sir,

After reading your bio on John Earl Cronin I am a bit concerned. In it you have mentioned Eden Cemetery for burial place. Also is mention the section number as well. Both of these are already copywritten as of 2010 and in a book that I own on the entire cemetery. You are aware that this considered copyright infringement.

Sincerely,

Bart Halleman

You have made a nice memorial for my cousin here: #120165362
and I thank you.

However, there was already in existence a memorial for him created back in 2011 here:
#67784303
BUT your memorial is far more complete and appropriate. As the creator of that memorial, can I ask you to try to contact the creator of the earlier incomplete memorial to have it eliminated? And if you don't have any luck with a response from that person (as I never had any response to my various contact attempts about other family memorials the person duplicated), can I ask you as creator of this more complete memorial to contact the administration of Find A Grave to plead your case for they removing the incomplete duplicate?
I would appreciate cleaning up this mess and as I got no response, and you have created the more complete memorial, you would be a stronger voice with the admins here. Thanks very much, John

You're very welcome. It's the least I can do. I wish I could do more...
