Hi James we are 11th cousins. Distant, but still cousins. =) Also, thank you for your service.to this Country. My dad & husband are Army Veterans. (In fact we moved back from Sierra Vista, AZ where he was stationed with an Intel unit 5yrs ago). Small world.
Hello James: Thank you for doing the shortened version of the FAG link in Keeney-585; however, when you do this, please leave mine up in the burial area. I put FAG Index as a source, but leave the profile # up with the grave information. Also, when you do this, please be careful not to take other symbols out. I do my cemeteries with enclosures see [] as an example. I replaced the bracket you took out and the FAG back where I want it so you can see what I'm referring to here. Also, thank you for your service. Darlene
