WWII 93rd Cal. "RECON - TRP" Soldier

Edward Rhodes, PFC U.S. ARMY, was a veteran of WWII and served, as etched into his Veteran's headstone, in "RECON - TRP unit. This African American soldier may have seen action in some of the hardest fought battles during WWII.

As the exclusive caretaker and historian of the all African American Brick Mill Cemetery, located just outskirts of Richlands, North Carolina, research is ongoing to identify each "Forgotten" veteran who have been laid to rest in this and the other fourteen cemeteries that I care for. At each confirmed Veteran's grave I say a few words of thanks and place an American Flag, even if the grave/cemetery is within wilderness areas.
