During a trip to Albany, New York, in May of this year, I photographed honor roll memorials in several New York and western Massachusetts cities, towns, and counties. I would blog about each one with the photographs and transcribed names included. After publishing each post, I tweeted a link and informed Heather about the new post.
Soon after publishing the Otis, Massachusetts, World War II honor roll, I received this reply to my tweet:

Contributing to this project has been a rewarding experience and having someone find one of their ancestors on a memorial I transcribed even more rewarding. I hope you will consider contributing as well. Paying it forward while working at something we love -- family research -- what could be better?
Thank you to all the men and women who have served in our Nation's armed forces. I am truly thankful for your service.
