    I wonder if she has any pics and associated stories about his career that she wouldn't mind getting scanned for you?

    I bet there's a whole book that could be told about his time in the service.

    not a prob, its the least i can do, like i said i live only a couple hundred feet away from the cemetery. i just feel bad it took me this long to take the photo, cause i know the headstone has been there for a little while. sorry about the delay. whenever i do funerals in that section, which is very very often, i am always aware he is right there. with each guy we bury next to him he has a new fellow brother in arms to share stories with him in the after life (i believe in that, maybe you guys don'y. lets not start a religious flame or whatever guys)
