Bio and Links
Bio Photo I grew up in Sedona, Arizona, back before it was "discovered." I still consider Sedona to be my hometown even though I no longer live there.

In 1965 I enlisted in the United States Marine Corps. I was a Recon Marine, serving with 1st Recon Bn in Viet Nam and with 2nd Recon Bn at Camp LeJeune, North Carolina. I received my Honorabe Discharge from the Corps in 1971.

My primary focus in Find A Grave is to create new memorials, or add to existing memorials, for the Marines and Navy Corpsmen of 1st Recon Bn who fought the Battle of Hill 488 - those who died on the hill and those who have since passed on - plus the five Marines from Charlie 1/5, VMO-2 and VMO-6 who died coming to the rescue of their Recon brothers. Semper Fi.

My secondary focus is to create new memorials, or add to existing memorials, for the Marines of Recruit Platoon 145 - The Arizona Platoon - MCRD San Diego - 1965.

And finally I wish to locate and obtain photos of the graves of relatives in my personal family tree and also those in my wife's family tree, and to create new memorials when appropriate.

RE: Klondyke Cemetery
Hello Bill,
I do not have the photo you request. I am sorry but I took only pic necessary for Find A Grave. That cemetery is remote and I am not likely to return.
Possibly you could contact a local history club or museum in Wilcox, Az. and a person there might help. Also be sure to click on photo Request thru Find A Grave. Many people do get around and this might help you too.

RE: Henry and Clara Witt
By chance, do you have another Witt couple at Washington Memory? As I was checking to verify that Henry and Clara did not have a stone, I found another Witt couple on the same plot. I need to check the photo as to their names.
