Bio and Links
Bio Photo My very sincere thanks to everyone who is pitching in and helping photograph the graves of Able Company. I really did not expect a response of this magnitude!

I am a mid-twenties part-time historian living in Brooklyn. My primary purpose for this site is to keep track of family members, and Marines who served with my ancestor 1st Lt. Philip Wood in Able Company, 24th Marines.

If anyone has any information about any of the profiles I have posted, please let me know!

In addition to the names listed here, I am actively seeking information on any members of A Company, 1st Battalion, 24th Marine Regiment.

If I can be of any help locating your military ancestors, please don't hesitate to ask!

Through their sacrifice may we learn not to repeat the mistakes of the past.

ANC Photo for USMC group burial
Quite a while ago, you requested a photo for the Group Burial at Arlington National Cemetery for a USMC WWII crew lost on a plane crash 4/22/44 -- that stone, Section 60 Site 10127, was finally put in place this month (5 years after the burial). Photos of their stone are on each of their memorials -- Donovan, Ekstam, Erickson, Lallathin, Sisney, Vincent, and Yeager.

Thank you for your patience!

RE: PFC William R. Steele
You are welcome to use the picture. It was from a September 1944 Greensboro Daily News article that I found and copied using a microfilm reader at our local library. (Not sure of the exact date).

Thank you for the new information about PFC Steele. I have added it to his Find A Grave entry, and have connected him to his parents.

I came across your memorial for Capt Edwin W Mitchell (Find A Grave Memorial# 57254555). Are you related to him?

Hello! I am about to fulfill your photo request but unfortunately, there is no permanent marker in place yet. The usual Jewish custom is for a marker to be placed one year after burial. He is next to his brother.

Since the earliest a marker will be placed is next October, all I can suggest is that you put in another photo request at that time.

Best regards,

Every strange. It still shows as an x in a tiny box with IE11. The photo appears fine using Chrome and Firefox. Oh well. We tried.

Please delete and re-upload your photo. It's not showing properly.

You have made a photo request for Richard Rusher in Green Mount Cemetery, CHESTER County.

This entry is misplaced, as he already exists in Green Mount Cemetery in YORK County.

The veteran's burial card says York County & the tombstone images are already on the York one.

Therefore, it will be impossible to fulfill your photo request in Chester County.
