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

Dube, Andre Louis
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...

Victor,

Thank you so much for posting the information and pictures of my uncle LCPL Scott James Roderick. I passed this information and news of the pictures to my father and he said this is the first contact he knows of from anyone that knew Scotty. Did you serve with him by chance. Please do contact me if you have further information on him as Dad and I would love to chat. Thank you again so much.

Kind Regards,
Pete

Victor, Thank you for the memorial and comments about Brent. He and I were hunting buddies before his enlistment as well as his family and my family were neighbors. I never heard the story of his final hours, just that he had given the ultimate sacrafice. Although it has been 42 years since he died, this allows me to have a clearer picture and completion to his life. Respectfully, Gary Baker

JAMES LEWIS
tHANK YOU FOR WRITING THE STORY OF WHAT HAPPENED TO JAMES LEWIS. HE WAS FROM TIVERTON RI AND WAS MY FIRST REAL BOYFRIEND. I was writing to him at the time of his death and actually got a letter from him the day it was in the local paper and news. We were suppose to go out when he got home. I know where he is buried in Notre Dame Cemetery. You are a good friend to do that. My name is Claudette Smith.
