Ssgt. Anthony's mother, Brenda, and his friend Jack continue his mission in seeking out, stabilizing and caring for forgotten
cemeteries. Anthony is always with us in Spirit. He guides us through the woods and thickest of brier bush and
overgrowth to locate cemeteries.
As of this date, Brenda and Jack are maintaining nine cemeteries within Onslow County, North Carolina (southeastern
region). They also "keep an eye" on numerous other graveyards that are being encroached upon by Urban sprawl. To
date, each of these cemeteries have military veterans who have been forgotten not only by the general public but, in some
cases, also by the veteran's own family members.
One African American veteran of the Spanish-American War, James Blackwell, Pvt, U.S. Army, is the only African
American veteran of this specific war ever known to exist within Onslow County. Before Ssgt. Goodwin's mission and the
help of Jack and Brenda, Private Blackwell had never been "officially" recognized, until 2007, for his service to his
African American S-A War Veteran (ca.1898)
Pvt. Blackwell was finally publically recognized during a lecture, to a group of prominate citizens.

Brenda Cheney places a flag by a WWII Vet's grave
Brenda, with Jack Robinson, continues to "carry on" her son's mission to locate "forgotten" vets.
A question has become a mission.
Jack Robinson places a flag next to an African American grave, "Died in France1918," was he a vet?
African American Veteran's grave recently located
If not for the once fallen metal name plate (now shown) over time this grave would be lost.
If you have a veteran within your immediate family, donate a few dollars to your local VFW
or DAV organizations. A U.S.O. (United Servicemen (and -women) Organization) near you would also be a great place to
donate time and money.
Thank you for supporting our troops and this cemetery preservation project.
