David, I looked your dad up and found his memorial. Here is the link: https://www.findagrave.com/memorial/123709774/bernard-f-de_gil
I have added five members to this site over the years. Nice way to sort of set up a memorial to them.
Your dad's headstone is beautiful. Peggy

I've used that. A few years back, I found an old college textbook, about 100 years old, and it had a lady's name in it, with the date about that time. Along with this, she'd written her prospective married name, practicing it several times. I knew she had to be long gone if not 120 years old but I became curious and started searching the internet to see if I could find anything out about her. I was surprised at how much I found. She grew up in Sedalia. Her family ran a local lumberyard. After college she moved to Kansas City. Sometime in her 20s, she was hit by a car crossing a street, and was killed. Such a promising life cut so short, and sure enough, there was her grave. It's a weird and sad feeling looking at her 100 year old handwriting, then realizing how it all ended just a few years later.

Yup, I have seen my dads headstone on the site. It will be updated come September (the headstone). Not sute if/when someone will update the picture on the website though.

Both my mom and dad are buried at Wood National Cemetery in Milwaukee, WI. They are buried together. Mom's inscription is on the back of my dad's.
And this is Mom's.
Huh. I do not remember seeing that before, but as the same time I do not remember the other graves at West Point. Does that happen often?
