Merry Christmas



     My website focus' on four major areas .... Delaware History, my personal family tree, my faith in Jesus Christ as my Lord and Saviour, and veteran's of World War II that " Gave Their Lives " so that we can all enjoy the freedom that we now have!


It's the "Soldier", not the reporter who has given us Freedom of the Press .....

It's the "Soldier", not the poet, who has given us Freedom of Speech .....

It's the "Soldier", not the campus organizer, who has given us the Freedom to Demonstrate .....

It's the "Soldier", not the lawyer, who has given us the Right to a Fair Trial .....

It's the "Soldier" who SALUTES THE FLAG,
SERVES UNDER THE FLAG
and whose COFFIN IS DRAPED BY THE FLAG.

Dennis Edward O'Brien, USMC


     I proudly served my country as a Sergeant in the U.S. Army during Vietnam!   In the 60's, when I was eligible for the draft, they used a lottery system based on birthdates to determine who would be drafted and who wouldn't.   Based on my birthdate it was " positive " that I " would not " be drafted!   " I enlisted in the Army anyway to serve my county despite the fact that I wouldn't be drafted!

" Previous Project "

     Worked on a project with the "Democrat & Chronicle" of Rochester, New York.   This project included two parts:   First a database of all the soldiers and sailors that "Gave Their All" during World War II from Monroe County and secondly stories where printed on some of the soldiers on their front page on the Sunday before Memorial Day 2012.   Those stories are no longer available unless you subscribe to that paper.

The database is online and located at the following address and is available for all to view:
