My G/Great Uncle (Pvt. Wilson Fryling) was killed in action (during the May 31, 1862 Battle of Fair Oaks / Seven Pines in Virginia) on June 1, 1862. I successfully obtained copies of personal letters he sent home to his family in Bucks County, PA .. which clearly displayed that he was an extremely Fine and Caring Lad. His family deeply mourned his tragic passing each and every day of their remaining lives. Indeed .. I'm honored to share him with each of you.

My G/Great Grandfather (William H. Fryling) was buried in an unmarked grave for 91 years. Realizing he was a Civil War Veteran and entitled to an official grave marker .. I applied to the Veterans Administration and my request was immediately granted. I was emotionally overwhelmed while capturing this most meaningful photo .. and saluted Grandfather Fryling's grave. Indeed .. this was a paramount "Mission Accomplished".

My wonderful "Uncle Bill Miller" was born (Oct. 1921) and raised in Northeast Philly. In addition to being one extremely squared away U.S. Marine .. he truly was that one-of-a-kind amazing guy who was blessed with a smile that could brighten up everyone .. and everything .. in his presence. Sadly, Uncle Bill passed away in July 1997 .. and is buried in the Bushnell Veterans Cemetery in Ocala, Florida.
