James Rhea Foote WW II Veteran from Hardeman County, TN born 1923-died 1991
Posted by: Derek Brown (ID *****8413) Date: February 25, 2013 at 17:05:12

I am trying to find information on my wife's grandfather, James Rhea Foote. He was born in Hardeman County, TN in 1923 and died in 1991 and is buried at Crowder Cemetery in Whiteville, TN. My wife never knew her grandfather and I am attempting to find information about him and his family for the family book I am putting together for our son. He served in the US Navy during WW II as a motor machinist mate on Higgins boats, carrying Marines ashore at Roi, Namur, Guam, Iwo Jima, and Okinawa. I would like to know who his parents were, if he had any siblings, and if there is anyone alive who might remember him and could tell me what happened to him after the war. It is my understanding that he suffered greatly from what is now called PTSD, mostly from his service at, and on, Iwo Jima. If anyone can help me with family information in general, or with James Rhea Foote in particular, I would be very grateful. Thank you, God Bless, and Semper Fi,
