Thanks for the congrats...But I'm not out of the woods yet, still looking for his grave. Sent an E to the local newspaper in Virginia Beach, Virgina.????I'm still looking and I plan on calling VA back Tuesday to see if they know his middle name, and place buried.What seems simple to me just turned into a block wall. I have a bunch of same names to contact now....????I started this research on my brother as a POW in Corregidor, and the sinking of the Shinyo Maru and found his girl friend, maybe a nephew, I've got everyone located over there...Problem becomes a lot of the US records were lost in the Philippines. I have also received some de-classified records regarding his history and I even found a picture of my brother on the net standing on the deck of a 3" AA gun. So Tuesday, I'm off and running again. Thanks for the response. You guys are great. Stay in touch.
