"Freedom is not Free"|
I am honored to create memorials for our WII, Korean, and Vietnam war dead.
I am presently working on creating virtual cemeteries for all American Ground Forces casualties during WWII:
65 Infantry Divisions (63/65 completed)
16 Armored Divisions (10/16 completed)
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.

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.

|Raymond Gravelin||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.
|Joyce Peck||RE: Thank you|
If you are related to this family, I can transfer the other Brunelli memorials to you.
|Mary Agnes Hammett||RE: Thank you|
You are very welcome. If you are military, or law enforcement, thank you for your service.
Do you know anything more about him? Might he have been in KS.? I have a 5X7 pic of him in his Army uniform, would like to get it go his family!!!!!! He's not related to me, just someone my mom wrote to during the war!

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.
