Thank you very much for your heartening website. Would you please consider adding to the web page of Brigadier General Bruce Palmer, Sr. that his son-in-law and daughter are buried near him - in addition to his son, General Bruce Palmer, Jr.? His daughter is my mother, Marcella Palmer Blanchard, and her husband, Colonel Wendell Blanchard, (4th Armored Division Reserve Command at Bastogne) is my father; their graves are near those of her father, Bruce, Sr., and brother, Bruce Palmer, Jr., and their wives in Section 30.

Thank you in any case!  --Lydia Blanchard
