|Many people are not aware that I
wrote Where Brave Men Sleep, a book on Lewis County men
and their burial sites. The data I sent you is in addition to the 2,600
plus veterans I name in this book.|
Many people are upset that their ancestor is not in that list and don't understand the abbreviations used. I stated in the body of my e-mail that the book will probably not be reprinted and included a list of abbreviations.
[Abbreviations which I forgot to include. Sorry - Jan Cortez] Abbreviations used:
cia ........Captured in action
disdis ....Discharged for disabilty
mo/co ...Mustered out with the company
VRC ......Veteran Reserve Corps
