Bio Photo "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)

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

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.

RE: Thank you
You are very welcome. Thank you for what you do. My Uncle Tony was killed in the Korean War. Memorial #9165118 if you care to take a look. He was a Sargent in Company A 34 INF, 24 INF Division. He had served in World War II also, was killed in the early days of the Korean War. I need to take a better picture of his stone and replace the one I have there.

RE: Thank you for the photos
It was not a problem, they were all in the same section. Graceland is a city of Racine cemetery and they have a really nice veterans section. It also has a wall with the names of all Racine's counties WW II dead. Dale
