Gentlemen, I was looking at your site featuring pictures at Biak Island. Photo #12 shows three men stanting in front of a cemetary on Biak. Can anyone identify the man on the left with the cap bill turned up? It looks like my father, James Walter Brown, who was with Graves Registration on Biak. He buried 989 men in the cemetary during the time he was there. He then exhumed all the bodies for reburial near the end of the war. Dad died in 1997 at home in east Tennessee. I have many pictures from his time on Biak. I would appreciate anyone in your group who might have know him letting me know. Thanks.
