LOOKING FOR VETERANS. J.R. is a US Army Vietnam Veteran (1965-1968), with 400 days at Qui Nhon, Pleiku, Cam Rahn, Saigon, Long Binh and Danang. Active duty military and veterans have a special place in our hearts! They fought (and many died) for us! "Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends." John 15:13. "The willingness with which our young people are likely to serve in any war, no matter how justified, shall be directly proportional as to how they perceive the veterans of earlier wars were treated and appreciated by their Nation." (Pres. George Washington, 1789).
- J.R. was one of the first triplets born in Portsmouth General Hospital, OH; adopted in Harlan, KY; and raised in Paducah, KY.
- Patty, born in Washington, DC, has roots in Virginia; Oil City & Franklin, Venango Co., PA; Quincy, Franklin Co., PA; Kilbehenny, County Limerick, Ireland; Scotland, and Germany.
DAUGHTER OF AMERICAN REVOLUTION: #943166, 5 May 2015, Henry Clay Chapter, Annandale, VA.

OUR LIFE OTHER THAN FIND-A-GRAVE:
- We fish bass tournaments for some 22 years.
~ We've picked up over 12,000 lbs. of litter & recycles at every lake fished for 11 years.
~ Patty recently won the "Triple Crown" (gold, silver & bronze) for spin-casting, basketball shooting and football throw at State Finals; JR has won silver and bronze in bowling doubles.
~ We have a special place in our hearts for little animals, and support two homeless pet shelters (NC&TN).
THE URGENCY: This is a race against time; acid rain, and mold are devastating grave inscriptions. If we don't photographically record memorials before they become unreadable, the location of these loved ones will be lost forever!
TO FIND-A-GRAVE CONTRIBUTORS: Thank you for helping others find the final resting places of their loved ones. The time your take from your schedule and family is appreciated, and well spent! May today be filled with sunshine and smiles, laughter, and love in your lives; and may God bless you for what you are doing!
