With advancing age and the complications of keeping up with all the new and revised computer equipment and methods --- I am trying to slowly back out of frequent updates.

I will continue to keep it available on-line and will try to answer any email questions (, but I do not intend to work on it every day, unless something spectacular comes along.  It's just too difficult. I began it in the year 1990. Thirty-three years is enough.

I will keep all the Rosters up-to-date.
They contain information on more than 200,000 Veterans.

Many Thanks to those that have suggested and contributed to the history of our local Veterans - Heroes one and All.

To list just a very few:

Mark Hayden - Computer Guru, Larry Bothe - (Curator Freeman Army Air Field Museum), Lou Thole & Ted Jordan - Freeman Field, John Schaffner, Wayne Dunn & Susan Weiss - 106th INF DIV, John Bowen - 31st INF DIV, COL Jorg Stachel - Camp Atterbury Commanding Officer, Daughter Christine (Ta-Wo-Kana-Geda - She Speaks Songs) Bartholomew County IN Pioneer Cemeteries, Son Christopher (Byggir - The Builder) that helps with remodels and builds, Egbert van de Schootbrugge - 30th INF DIV, Mike Kist & Rick Caldwell - AmVets of Southern Indiana, Michael Neufeld - Smithsonian and so very many, many more.

Questions to me at
