Linda: Thank you so much for your kind assistance in allowing us access to our family graveyard on Ft Bragg (Goins Cemetery). My wife JoAnne and I enjoyed meeting you and we are greatful that you would take the time to accomodate us and allowing us to visit the cemetery. You really went over and above what is normal.

We received the two papers you sent and we are all of us going through them searching for clues. My cousin, Tracy Hutchison has a website where she has put pictures of the cemetery and it also contains all the Goins information we have for our branches of the Goins Family.

Having been in the military myself, I hope that you will share this e-mail with your immediate superior so he/she will realize what a fine job you are doing and how well you represent the US Army and Ft Bragg. I was so pleased to see the care that the cemetery received and how nicely it is maintained.

 An old Marine is greatful to his Nation.

Willard W Goins, jr. formerly Sergeant, USMC
