Memorial Day Readings on Military Men

Simultaneously, this very small community has a Civil War Veteran whose gravesite cannot be located.

Could the two be a match? The story of Charles F. Walker can be read at:

Navy Chief Photographer Robert Cornell, for whom the military was a life career, was buried at sea after being fatally killed in a car accident. His story can be read by clicking:
