4 Airborne Divisions (4/4 completed)
1 Cavalry Division (1/1 completed)
1 Mountain Division (1/1 completed)
6 Marine Divisions (6/6 completed)

Fleet Admiral Chester W. Nimitz:
"They fought together as brothers in arms; they died together and now they sleep side by side...To them, we have a solemn obligation the obligation to ensure that their sacrifice will help make this a better and safer world in which to live."

***************************

In 2013 I completed a five year project traveling to Hawaii annually from the mainland to photograph headstones for all of our WW2 dead at the National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific (Punchbowl) in Honolulu. I have added over 10,000 photos to memorials at the cemetery. Prior to 2008, few of the memorials had a headstone photo.

SGT Kielian, St Stan, NJ
Hi, Jeff. If you look at the St. Stan cemetery photo, you see the entrance road goes down right and hairpins to exit on left. SGT Kielian rests in the second row from the hairpin turn on the left side in his family's plot.

Lester Congdon bio
I was from the same hometown as Lester. (Volutown, Connecticut)
Thanks for all the information about Lester's parents, his birth year, the photo of his stone marker, etc.

I was stationed in Pearl Harbor on a submarine rescue ship in the 60's. I visited the Punchbowl at that time, however I didn't know Lester was interred there then. I did see Ernie Pyle's marker.
Best regards,
Ray Gravelin

Private Max Nebs, Sacred Heart
Hi, Jeff. I took a shot of Private Max Nebus' marker in Sacred Heart, Parlin, NJ. He rests in the military row behind the cross and military memorial. See the gorgeous shot by Dianne Delitto.
