Bio and Links
Bio Photo For many years I've done photography and been interested over the past few years in history and the military... interests that continue to grow.

Living in the shadow of the Washington Monument has given me easy access to fuel all of these interests and more. I work with the local US Army Special Forces Association chapter and have been blessed and privileged to photograph the final honors at Arlington National Cemetery.

Despite ANC's huge area and complexity, it's an outstanding tribute to those who have served to protect and defend the United States of America and the freedoms that we enjoy.

ONE of two cemeteries under the care of the US Army, the missions that are carried out daily during the week are successfully completed by the Third Infantry Regiment, also known as "The Old Guard"

In October 2007, after several months of photographing the missions of the Presidential Salute Battery, I was made an "honorary" member of this elite unit.

Take a look at my website and you'll see some interesting items and results of my labors.

JUN 2011 Marked another "FIRST"

My first book, which is THE first book about a historic US Army Post with origins during the US Civil War was published - "Images of America - Fort Myer" became a reality. It is right next to Arlington National Cemetery. is the website which complements the book.

On 04 MAY 2015 another milestone was reached when "Images of America - Fort Lesley J. Mcnair" was released. is the website that complements the book.

Charles Rhodes @ Arlington Cem
I went to take a look for his grave today, but not there, not in ANC listing either. Might he be buried elsewhere such as Find A Grave Memorial# 34955275. Seems like the headstone in Wilmington has the same information, just slightly different birthdate. I am going to post not buried in Arlington, and remove the request. Let me know if you think otherwise, and with updated location information and i could go look for you again.~ J

Hi John,

I found a grave listing for someone I believe to be the Drill Sergeant I had in Basic at Ft Dix. The description of his service and age make me believe it may have been him. I have scanned his photo from my Basic Training Yearbook. Is there a way you could verify it is him. I can't imagine there could be tow soldiers with a name like that at the same time. I'll put the photo there for now. If it's not him, I'll remove it.

Would you mind transferring Col. Kenneth Ecklund Buell 59515225 to my care? He was my step-father. He and my mother were married for over 21 years an absolutely amazing man. If you would like to transfer his first wife, Dusty (Vivian) as well I will be happy to care for her as well. She died of lung cancer shortly after I met her. but I understand she was just as wonderful as he was.
