Bio and Links
Bio Photo I'm addicted to Genealogy so my wife says. I've been doing it for about fifteen years. Taking pictures of all the kin I never got to meet. We were told we were the last of the Reece's "NOT"!! I started out with about ten names and have over six thousand five hundred. I'm really glad there are people who will help you with your research. FindAGrave is another tool for newcomers to Genealogy and Veterans. If you find any errors or would like for us to correct the info that was supplied to us please use the edit tab then the suggest a correction (SAC) bar.

My brother Jim & Rosa King and I are currently working on all the NC Vietnam KIA/MIA's Grave sites. After 8 years of searching, we've located all of the resting places for these brave men & women who paid the ultimate price, over 1900 of them. This doesn't mean we are idle. Now we are looking for their photos. The search for all Vietnam KIA/MIA's goes on.

You can try me at if the Yahoo doesn't work

I am a cousin of this fallen hero, unfortunately the picture is not my cousin. all the other information is correct but Joe didnt have curly hair and it was never that long, my mom also looked and realized it was not him. I have seen numerous pictures of him in nam at his mom's but I have none and have lost contact with his mom.
thanks for all your contributions honoring people many have forgotten

RE: Baudrau
Sure he was born on 8/6/1931 in Connecticut and died on 6/19/2008 in Murphy, NC, hope that helps.

Hey my distant cousin, Edward A. Baudrau, lived and died in Murphy, NC, and I was wondering if you lookup obituaries too?

Added your data, also noticed you added the same photo twice. Would you mind deleting the duplicate? Thanks.

Hi Tom - Thank you for bringing my attention back to this memorial. Usually Donna Railsback lets me know when she leaves a photo with data the memorial is missing, but missed this one. I've updated it and added information regarding this young man's service. I'd be glad to make additions for you but in this instance feel it appropriate to retain the memorial for a request from a family member. I also try to honor Veterans, keeping virtual cemeteries for the various wars.

Frederick E. Hughens
I accepted Fred's assignment to a surgical clinic I ran at 1st Medical Battalion, 1st Marine Division, in February, 1970. His bio doesn't reflect his assignment with us through approximately June, 1970. I was the senior corpsman of what was called, S&D, or suture and debridement,at the Medical Battalion.

He left us by his own choice to reassign to H&S Company, attached to Company B, 1st Battalion, 7th Marines, 1st MARDIV (Rein) FMF.

A couple of weeks later he came back to visit me at 1st Med. I repaired his an ingrown nail on his big toe and procured some ground beef for him from our chow hall.

Still later, I was at 1st Med when his body was brought in by medevac. I had a feeling about him coming back and recognized his bandaged toe I had repaired about two weeks prior.

He was an outstanding young man: talented, very intelligent,unshaken by duress. His death was a loss for all of us.
