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.

Harold Montgomery

I visited Memorial Gardens Cemetery in Colorado Springs and photographed the crypt marker for Harold Montgomery. I have added the photo to his memorial.

If there is a memorial for Elvina E. Montgomery, please let me know and I will add the photo to
her memorial.

RE: Alice and Edith
I could not get Alice's stone cleared enough to show the death date in the picture, but I could see it was Aug 25, 1933. The stone had sunk down in the ground several inches.

RE: Herbert J. Banks
You are welcome. I'm sorry that I couldn't get closer, but the stone is so shiny that if I didn't stay off to the side, you could see my reflection in it. It was like standing in front of a mirror!

William E. Rudd
I forgot to mention that William is not in section B, he is in section R, same grave number. I already put in an SAC for it as well as his middle initial.
