I am a retired Hoosier from Madison County residing in the Philippines with my Filipino wife. We are seeking family and military information about servicemen from your county killed in the South Pacific during World War II. There are 17,206 Americans buried here and thousands more that are missing or buried at sea and are honored on the “Tablets of the Missing”.

Please visit our website to see the beautiful memorial located in Manila, Philippines. http://fizkid.tripod.com/ (linked above)

My wife and I visited the cemetery as visitors and left with a mission in our heart. We have been taking photographs of the graves of the Indiana servicemen buried here and have been uniting them (at no charge) with their family members in Indiana and across the United States. To receive the photo of your family member all you need is a working email address. We do not send them to regular mailing addresses due to the costs. Please help us find the families of the men that might still be living. If you wish to help us we will be pleased to add your name to our ACKNOWLEDGMENT page on the website.

The obituaries usually did not appear till to three months after the death date. If you know of a serviceman that is not listed or reside in another county and wish to have other lists please send a note to us. Zenas5@yahoo.com Attached is the list of names including the servicemen from your county that are honored at the Manila American Cemetery Memorial. Sincerely, Dave and Apple Dwiggins San Pablo City, Philippines
