Comments: Dear Sir,
Do you have any information on US organizations concerned with non-military and civillians buried overseas? Kindly let me know as I deal with burial records of old victorian cemeteries in Pakistan and I have often come across graves of Americans buried here in 19th century and early 1900s. I would like to share the information and point out the locations of these graves, most of whom appear to be of missionaries. Thanks.

I know I will never get to see it but the grave I would love to see is of Milton Pete Taylor at Plot G Row 11 grave 12, 91st infantry B1921 Died June 29 1944. He was called away from this world before I was born but my father talked of him as he did of all his brothers, now I just hope all 12 of them are together again

I myself have not been deployed overseas yet during the War Against Terrorism or Operation Iraqi Freedom. I had a close call last month when they told me I would be joining my unit in Iraq just a month after completing my initial training. Since my unit will be returning home in November they decided they would not need me just yet. So I have been lucky to stay home and be with my 3 1/2 year old son and my parents until some time next year when they do need me. I will be honored to go fight with my brothers and sisters and win this war to make sure our country is safe from those who fight against us. Those we have lost did not die in vain. The fought for our freedom and gave all they had until the end. For all of them the end was too close. May God bless them and their families for giving their hearts and souls so our children can live in peace. I have lost several of my close friends in the last year. Some Marines, Army, Navy Corpman and civilian contractors. The one that hit me the hardest was the Marine Reservist. He was my best friend. He died in January on my 21st birthday. Killed in an explosion when the vehicle he was driving was hit my a roadside bomb in Baghdad 13 days before his unit was to return home after a 17 month deployment. Lance Cpl Mathew Wayne Holloway Semper Fi. And he was Always Faithful, til the day he died. I fight for the people we have lost and for the people who can't fight for themselves. I am willing to pay the ultimate price so my son and the future sons and daughters of this country don't have to. God Bless those who I serve with now and everyone who has served in the past. Thank you for what you do and I thank our friends and families who support us everyday. And thank you for keeping the memories of our heroes alive with this website.

I was deeply touched reading your story. Brother, a Marine, came home from Vietnam with two purple hearts. Hubby, a Marine, arrived home safe; we married, raised a daughter and have been blessed with over 30 years of marriage. Currently we await the imminent arrival of a grandson. Already, I fear for the day I will see him put on a uniform...for how can he not...we go back to the Rev. War. Ancestors in every conflict, including Iraq. May God walk beside them all...

What a wonderful website... My name is SSgt Daniel Rineer,USAF. I am stationed at NATO airbase Geilenkirchen Germany, about 20 minutes from Margraten WWII memorial and cemetery. I've read many of the guest book entries of people who have loved ones and family members buried there. I have many pictures of the cemetery available and would also be willing to go there and take personal pictures of both the wall and graves and deliver flowers to anyone's love ones who are there. I feel it is a privilege to serve my country so close to the resting place of these great Americans. If anyone is interested please feel free to email me at daniel.rineer@geilenkirchen.af.mil. I will be living here until December 2006... Thank you all for your families sacrifices!

I was in the Navy Medical Corps and spent as much time with the 1St and 6th Marine Divisions while stationed in Tsingao, and Tientsin, China, as I served in the Navy.

This website does the boys of Stokes County, North Carolina proud. It nearly breaks my heart to read all these names of these boys who gave their lives in defense of what they believed to be the right cause. Whether it be the Civil War, or the Vietnam War, these brave young men paid for there piece of happiness in Stokes County with their lives. I myself am a native son of North Carolina, however, not of Stokes County. I am also a veteran of the second war in Iraq, and it gives me great pride to look upon these names, and remember that these boys passed away in combat fighting for something so dear to them; liberty, and the liberty of others.

I am searching for information about the repatriation of American soldiers after WWII. There is a burial flag here with 38 gold stars and 10 white stars. The soldier did not come from your cemetery but he was part of the 1946-1951 recovery program. Would you know if any flags were put on caskets before they left Europe? I have looked everywhere for information about these flags but I have found nothing yet. I believe your website has more information about the repatriation than any I have seen. Sincerely,

You have done an awesome job of helping us remember what should be remembered -- those brave souls who have been wounded and died unselfishness for their country. Thank you for caring!!
Also, I am trying to find information on my great grandfather who was killed at the Battle of Seven Pines. He was from Alabama. Don't know where to start looking. The only info I have on him is that his name was John Weaver and he was married to Mary Annie Freeman Weaver, who was born January 19, 1842, in Anderson County, SC. Any thoughts on where I should start my search?
Thanks again for your website. Harry Palmer My e-mail address: palm9325@bellsouth.ne

I would like to see more web sites like yours. I am trying to find a long lost sweetheart. He was in the army in WWII and I lost track. I fear he may have been KIA. His name was Robert Dale Smith. There is a Robert D. Smith listed as died Sunday Nov.5, 1944 and memorialized at Epinal Cemetery. His ID was 39716671. 36th Infantry Div. He entered the army from CA. I wonder if Robert D. and Robert Dale are one and the same. Robert Dale Smith's date of birth was 1/25/19. Could you please help me. Alline Palmore Zimmerman. jwzranch@wilnet1.com

Someone sent me this link. My grand parents were from Stoke County. I had a cousin die in WWI and two that died in WWII. None of my cousins were actually from Stokes. One was from Rockingham and the other two were from Forsyth. I hope someone will honor their memory the way that you have honored the memories of the young men from Stokes who gave their lives to their country. I have had hearing problems my whole life that have prevented me from serving (I tried several times when I was a young man to get into the Navy, but the MEPS people always kept me out). Keep up the good work. Your web site is a good place to stop and think for a moment.

He is the first person, other than my mother and daddy, that I remember. An earlier comment that I read - "They're not gone until they're forgotten," gives your work great patriotic significance. I am sure that this website will bring great pride, as well as great comfort to the many people who visit it. Thanks for what you are doing.
