I'm looking for family of Bernard J. Harris, one of America's help me to look at related to this soldier. I have adopted his grave in Belgium Flanders Field in Waregem. I'm here now, so several times a year to set up a flower so that these heroes will not be forgotten. It is a project adopte-a-grave set up by Joseph Schram. I've got now emailed the death announcement Eugene Harris.
