"Freedom is not Free"|
I am honored to create memorials for our WWII, Korean, and Vietnam war dead.
In May 2017 I completed a 4 year project creating virtual cemeteries for all American Ground Forces casualties during WWII (with the exception of the 9th Armored Division, no casualty roster seems to be in existence):
65 Infantry Divisions (65/65 completed)
16 Armored Divisions (15/16 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)
The Cost of Freedom:

WW2 US Army Battle Deaths: 291,557
WW2 US Marine Corps Battle Deaths: 19,733
US Navy Battle Deaths: 36,950
Korean War US Army Battle Casualties: 29,856
Korean War US Marine Corps Battle Casualties: 4,509
Korean War US Navy Battle Casualties: 657
Korean War US Air Force Battle Casualties: 4,509
Vietnam War US Army Battle Casualties: 38,224

Vietnam War US Air Force Battle Casualties: 2,586
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.

His grave is beside a grave that is fenced in, and the post was casting a shadow over the headstone, and so was I. I was getting creative trying to eliminate the shadows so you could read the headstone.

|Wayne Sayles||Pvt Melvin J. Roberts|
Thank you for including the image and info for my great-uncle Melvin Roberts. As the marker indicates, he served with the 31st infantry regiment—which was captured in its entirety on Bataan in 1942. Melvin was transferred to Formosa on the Hokusen Maru in the Fall of 1944 and died at the Shirakawa camp there shortly before the war ended. Unfortunately, the family information that is appended to Melvin's page is not accurate. He was born in northern Wisconsin to Emery Erick Roberts and Dora Rose Baken Roberts. Siblings were William, Emery, Ronald, Leone and Violet. I am the grandson of Leone and knew all of the aforementioned except the boys William and Emery who died as children and Melvin who died when I was two years old. He had been in captivity since before my birth.
With best regards and thanks for your dedication,
Wayne G. Sayles, USAF ret.
