Glad to be  able to  share  your   event  for Private  Koch  at St Helena,through these   online   pictures  of the  day,  and  all your   other events  through the  year.I remember the  deep  appreciation   I  felt  when Capt.  A.W.Starr was  recognized  with an  official   Mil. marker and  hope  Pvt  Koch's  decendents were  able   to  experience   the  same.
