Santa Picture

(okay...won't post with the picture....will have to try later...you just get to read my rambling...)

Wow...it has been a long time since I posted!! You all are probably missing my pictures...yeah right...lol.

Anyway...this is Hunter with Santa at the mall. ( he is wearing his cubscout shirt...he had a thing with cubscouts at the recycling center before his picture...not the best shirt for a Christmas picture but oh well!

I hope you are all doing well...we are all doing fine now...I had a trip to the ER last Friday night...I had a migraine for way too long(had it off and on since the week before Christmas...that is why my cards were late and some presents did not get mailed) and had gone to the doctor Thursday and Friday and got shots both days but they did not help. Then Jason came home from work on Fridday night to find me sitting on our bathroom floor crying because my head hurt so bad...he said lets go...so we went. One CAT scan, some blood work, an IV, some pain meds, and a spinal tap later I was sent home...we were ther for about 5 hours or so. Then...today I woke up with another one...only lasted a few hours...thankfully!

Hunter has been doing really well medically this year...not many problems with his asthma...hopefully he stays that way. Jason, well he never gets sick! And that leaves us with the dogs...they are both fine too...when they listen that is...lol!

Have a great day... I will try and post some more pictures as I get some time...maybe even a scrapbook page or two...imagine that!

US Marine Casualty Cards

Earlier this week I got my copy of Family Tree Magazine and I was reading an article that led me to World War II History Network and from there I found a link to an article about the United States Marine Corp making their casualty cards searchable.  You can find the database at Casualty Cards Database.
Fred Thomas, my husbands great uncle, was in WWII and in the Marines.  I searched the database and found :

On the first page it states : While the cards for World War II through Korea are not classified, however, they can often be very graphic.Therefore, to maintain the dignity and honor of the Marines, the individual cards will only be released, upon request, on a case by case basis.To request a card, please send an email tohistory.division@usmc.milor a request in writting to: United States Marine Corps History Division

Marine Casualty Card Database

While I was writing Top 10 Blog Posts for 2019 I discovered that my top post was US Marine Casualty Cards from 2014.  Wow! {There is also an update to the original post here where I show some more information that was sent to me.}  I went back to read the post and discovered that the links no longer work. 
I did a little digging and found a link to the Casualty Card Database at the Marine Corps University website.  At this site you click on the war you want to search and download a searchable spreadsheet.  Once you locate your Marine you send an email to request the card.  There are also links to download information about what the codes mean on the cards.
I also found that you can search the U.S. Marine Corps Casualty Index, 1940-1958, at Ancestry.com.  It gives the casualty date, type, unit, and service number.  There is a link to go to another website from the Ancestry database but that link does not work. {I believe it is the same as the link from my original post.}
