    That’s my dad in the middle. My mother has this picture also. It’s really neat to see this here.

    @Sue Knapp Riley Sue, thank you so much for visiting the website. I’m so glad that I was able to find you and share the picture.

    My Dad died in 1994. I really wish he was still here because he would have loved this. He lived his whole life around the Zanesville area. When he died on Easter Sunday April 3, 1994 he was living in Duncan Falls, Ohio, it’s probably less than 10 mile south of Zanesville. After the war he went to work in the coal mines and then went to work for Armco Steel in Zanesville and retired from there, just not sure of the date on that.
    Thank you so much for finding me to show this to me. You’ve done a wonderful job with all your research, it must have been very time consuming, but I’m sure it’s also been rewarding.

    @Sue Knapp Riley Thank you for the wonderful info, Sue. I wish I had the opportunity to speak with your father. He sounds like a good, hard-working man.

    Thanks so much for posting this Brian, my Dad would have enjoyed this. The only change now is that both of my brothers have passed away since his passing. Did you get the other pics of the unknown soldiers? It would be interesting to find out who they are.
    Thanks again Brian, you do nice work..

    @Sue Knapp Riley Sorry to hear of your brothers’ passing. I did receive all of the pictures that you sent. Hopefully, with a little digging, I’ll be able to identify them. Thanks for the compliment. None of this would be possible without all of your help!
