Bio and Links
I am a retired Illinois high school teacher who became involved in an memorial to the 192nd Tank Battalion which fought on Bataan. ( Since then, we have added the 194th Tank Battalion and 17th Ordnance to the website. Most of the pages I deal with have to do with members of the two tank battalions or 17th Ordnance. In addition, there are a number of pages that are memorials to former students, of the high school I teach at, who died in World War II and Vietnam.
I also have added memorials to men who are named on the Tablets of the Missing at Manila and are listed on the ABMC website but, for whatever reason, had no Find-A-Grave page.

I do not know of any family who would have a better photo of him. Sad to say.

RE: Lt. James Hart
Thank you so very much for your message. I had no idea of the memorial that you spoke of in your message. I have passed along the information to other family members. I'm very humbled by his service and sacrifice.

Do you know where I can locate a photo of the memorial? I tried to locate it online, but can't find it. I did find a memorial library in his honor. That's amazing as well!

Pvt. Jack W. Tucker
Hi Jim,

Just thought I'd let you know I posted a new photo of Pvt. Tucker's grave marker from Lincoln Memorial Park in Portland, OR. His memorial is #75841997. I cleaned it up a bit and it's more legible now. Please feel free to use the photo if you'd like.

Hi Jim: We had a Vollmer-Bell reunion this past weekend and old photos were shared. I posted one of Charles on his page you may be interested in. Thanks.

Thank you for creating a page for my Uncle Eugene and yes, if you don't mind transferring it to me, I'd love to have it. Thank you so much on all your hard work here at Find A Grave.

RE: Robert Lee Young
Hi Jim,

I finally sorted Robert Lee Young's Birthdate: 30 Nov 1914. He was KIA Philippines 8 Feb 1942.

I am in possession (finally) of his Purple Heart and Casket Flag.

His body was shipped home after the war and interred in Somerset Methodist Church next to his parents, sister and brother, Major Bruce A. Young.

Thank you much for all your previous and ongoing assistance.

RE: Lawrence Jordan

I am helping a college friend look into her dad, Lawrence Jordan and is familiar with the Proviso Project, with the Proviso High School of Maywood, Il -- seeing the name Herbert Hans Haupt I plugged it into Find-A-Grave and he came up with a bio that sort of fits into the one you posted for Lawrence Jordan but the High School name is different?

Any help you can be will be appreciated. Do you know if there is a newspaper obit out there for Lawrence? Thanks, Lisa
