Bio and Links
I am an 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.

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

RE: Pvt. James M. Carter
Jim...could you add that link to his bio? I thought it used to be on there but maybe I was wrong. It's really a great write up.
