Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been doing genealogy research for over 25 years and have received innumerable "helps" from so many people. I am here to return the favor, if I can. I hope to hear from you.

I have been working on building virtual cemeteries for all fallen Marines and Navy Corpsman. I have over 23,000 sites in these cemeteries. You are welcome to look at it and use any information that I have there for your own use. If you have anyone you would like me to add please let me know. Also, if you would like to transfer Marine/Corpsman sites to me I would appreciate it. Some members do not like to add information and I feel that all of the Marines/Corpsman on this site deserve to have their story told, if there is one.

Duplicates: It is never my intention to create a duplicate on purpose. If you come across a duplicate I have made, please let me know. I'll remove it as soon as I get your note. Please notify me via the EDIT feature.

When requesting a transfer, please state your relationship and add your Find A Grave member number to your request.

I received your SAC containing the death notice for him. If you write an original bio (omitting names of the living, of course,) I'd be happy to post it.

Sgt. Harold Wesley Way
I can give you one other one off the top of my head. He died at MCAS New River and was the NCOIC of Electrical Shop wile I was NCOIC of Radio Shop. We had a bird down in Mississippi with a bad generator. We were ferrying another CH-53 to Corpus Christi, Tx for overhaul. Sgt. Way was taking a generator for the downed helo and would come back in it. The Ch-53 he was in had a rotor blade failure on lift off loaded with internal fuel tanks for the long trip to Texas. His memorial is # 95115952

Korea Marine
My uncle was a Marine in Korea in 3/5. He was in the first wave at Inchon, fought at Seoul and at the Chosin Reservoir. I was a Marine in Vietnam (HML-367, MAG 36). I have requested a transfer of my uncle's memorial and will add a short bio. If you would like to add him to your virtual cemetery he is memorial #111050652.

Thank you for honoring our Marines. Semper Fi.

Bob, thank you for he heads up on my memorial. Not sure how I missed it - always check before entering. We must have created them about the same time. Mine has been deleted and I have requested a new link between he and his daughter.

Thanks for your contributions.
