Bio and Links
I am an Illinois high school teacher who became involved in an memorial to the 192nd Tank Battalion which fought on Bataan. Since then, we have added the 194th Tank Battalion and 17th Ordnance to the website. Most of the pages I deal with have to do with members of the two tank battalions or 17th Ordnance. In addition, there are a number of pages that are memorials to former students, of the high school I teach at, who died in World War II and Vietnam.
I also have added memorials to men who are named on the Tablets of the Missing at Manila and are listed on the ABMC website but, for whatever reason, had no Find-A-Grave page.

RE: Earl Brakes
Thank you for the information. Really appreciate it. I don't know if DNA results would be conclusive as the only family members here are from his sister who was adopted. We have no family left that would be in the same blood line. I could try and find someone from his mother's side. I will have to do a lot of looking.

Earle Brakes
Thank you for posting the picture of the monument for Earle. He was my husband's great uncle. I have a lot of articles on him but we never knew where he was buried at or even if his body was ever found. I have added a few articles regarding his missing in action status and other things.

Thanks again,

George F. Fowler
Hello Jimo. I am doing research for George F. Fowler 31st Inf. Regt. in the Phillipines. Do you have any info on him. Here in Nebraska my info says he got a Silver star for attempting to shoot down a Japanese plane with a machine gun and died doing it.The local death date is down as march 1942 even before the Bataan death march.You mentioned that he died as a POW. I spend all my time working on world war II hero's and would appreciate any info you have. Thanks Loren bender

RE: Paul Darnell
Thank you so much...My mom is going to be extremely delighted to see this kind of project going on. I'm sure if my Dad was alive he would be fall over in his chair. Your giving me an idea for our graduating class as well. We had a lot of people pass on. Something to ask at our reunion on Sept 12th!

Thank you so much for the wonderful photo. My mom's husband is related. Unfortunately, he had passed away. It was a sad time for the family. I noticed your profile. I was wondering about Paul's education background, and anything else I can dig up. This family has a lot of interesting turns.
