Hello Mr. Schott,

I want to thank you for posting the photo of the Manila American Cemetary for my Great Uncle Alexander Mercaldo's profile. Are you located in Manila? I'm trying to find out how I can get a photo of his name on the monument. Do you know how I might be able to go about this? Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

He was a Machinist's Mate, First Class, US Navy First Class, Navy. The USS Vincennes sank at Sea after being hit by a Japan plane more than once. Edwin was on the USS Vincennes. He never married. His family missed him so much.

We would appreciate if you can document this on his memorial. Thank you for all you do.

I believe the death date you have listed for John Burroughs Stahl is off by one year. He was killed in November, 1944, not 1945.

George Webb
Could you remove the cemetery photo from George Webb's page, 56753961?

I'd like to add a picture of George but the five picture limit on George's page has been reached. There is a picture of his grave on the page and some other photos. I think the best one to delete in the cemetery picture.

Thank you
Thank you for the picture of the US Cemetery in Manila where my grandmother's younger brother, Pvt. Eugene F. Server, was laid to rest when killed in WWII aboard the USS War Hawk in January 1945 after the ship was rammed by a Japanese suicide boat. I have linked him with his parents and siblings at long last.

This young man was my second cousin. All the family knows is that he was killed while serving in the Pacific for the USA Army.
Do you have any other information?

Herbert W. Johnson
Herbert W. Johnson served on a PT Boat with Milton Rackham
and Frank McKuster. Herbert saved the life of Milton Rackham
and he has been torn with his feelings of gratitude, friendship and sadness when he found out that Herbert Johnson was killed in service. His grave number is D 1 104. I see that there was a "disposition according to next of kin." We are trying to find a birthdate and possible parentage of H.W. Johnson. I have contacted the NARA and they have told me that Herbert's Naval Records cannot be found. Just wondering if you have any contact with the Sexton of the Cemetery? Could there be any other data saved from the time of Herberts burial? He died 6 March 1944 in Mindoro.

Would appreciate any contact or help with my search.

YOUR PHOTOGRAPHS are very beautiful and moving. I can almost
feel the breeze and the peace that is there. What a great sacrifice for our freedom. These men are true heroes to be honored.

Grave in Phillippines
Hello, I see a memorial on findagrave for Michael (Mickey) Bernard Ludwig, who is buried at Clark Air Force Base in Manila, Phillippines, where he was buried after his death in 1943 in World War II. There is no photo on the memorial, nor could I see a place to request one. Is it not possible to get a photo of a specific marker there?
