Joseph L. Pipes, Jr. Sgt USMC WWII Iwo

I am looking for family of Joseph L. Pipes, Jr who was a Sgt in the USMC at Iwo. He helped crew a howitzer called "Glamour Gal". There is a USMC WWII film called Glamour Gal that is on youtube - Part I has the 10 men. My grandfather, Thomas Owen Bratcher was also a member of the crew. I am searching for family to inform them that there is a ceremony on May 8, 2009 in Hot Springs, Arkansas to honor the crew of Glamour Gal and the families and the howitzer has been re-made and designed to look like the original Glamour Gal. The fllm says Sgt. Pipes was from Louisiana.
