In one of the rarities at Arlington National Cemetery, this individual has two similar gravestones located directly adjacent to one another. His stones indicate that he was a Flying Cadet in the Air Service during World War I, but his record in the national database indicate that he served in the United States Coast Guard. He was apparently born in Finland on 26 November 1897 and died on 30 November 1950 in New York.
I have checked this out and we a have made mistakes. Mrs Mayblom is interred in grave 4874 and her husband is in 4875 in section 34. He was a Fireman 1st in the USCG. Two new headstones will be ordered today, one for Henry A Mayblom and another for Vieno his wife.
Thanks for bring this to my attention.
