Jefferson Barracks cemetery - will honor your loved one
My Uncle (306thBG - 368 BS) was killed in the war on December 15, 1944., and is buried in his hometown of Vienna, Mo.
This web forum sight was my main source for info and finding other resources.- so many stories and facts that provided a wonderful tribute book about his time in the war.
I was even contacted by a wonderful personin England who knew of his crash in Newbury, near Greenham Common.
(he was diverted from Thurleigh)
He gave us much info, pictures of the beautiful land as it looks today, and then even placed flowers near where the crash probably occurred for our family. He gave my Mom/ her family, and us so much comfort during this search.
He was one of many that made our tribute book much more personal.-
I live in St. louis - My brother and I walk a trail many times a week near the JB cemetery.
I have looked many times over at the vast grave sites and bowed my head in tribute.
I began thinking and had an idea of"Pass a kindness on."
Ifanyone out of state would like me to visit their loved one; and say a prayer, or place a flower ;
It would be my honor to do so for you.
FREEDOM STANDS BECAUSE HEROES SERVED...
No, we will never forget.
