Hi Leendert,

Thanks for reply and the Info`s regarding S/Sgt John C. Neely.
I`ve also found both Photos but I wonder that in the ABMC Database he`s registrated for Burial in the Lorraine American Cemetery St. Avold, France Plot E Row 42 Grave 12.
It`s a little bit confused, because if you check ABMC database for his Name.... you`ll find nothing....

Thanks again

streak98 (Dirk)

Here is his listing in the ABMC files:

I am sure the "grave" in New Jersey is only a memorial.

Hi RSwank,

Thanks again for your reply.... I wonder that for S/Sgt. John C. Neely no Photo with the typical Cross on the ABMC Cemetery in Lorraine exist....

Greetings Dirk(streak98)
