Description

A newspaper article in the Cumberland Sunday Times, announcing the wedding of Richard McElwee, Jr. and Mary Lou Milleson. The couple's son, Richard Paul McElwee, was born in Cumberland, Maryland, on August 26, 1947. He either enlisted or was drafted into the United States Navy on June 12, 1968. He retired as a Seaman (SN) on April 17, 1970. As a Seaman, McElwee was assigned general duty deck and administrative work. In 1982, Richard Paul McElwee moved to Palm Bay, Florida, where he married and had one daughter, Stefani. He worked as a landscaper and nurseryman. McElwee passed away on August 8, 1994, and is memorialized in Florida National Cemetery in Bushnell, FL, on March 9, 1995.

In 2017, the University of Central Florida was one of three universities selected to launch the National Cemetery Administration’s Veterans Legacy Program Project. The program engaged a team of scholars to make the life stories of veterans buried in the Florida National Cemetery available to the public. The project engages UCF students in research and writing and fosters collaboration between students, faculty and local Central Florida schools to produce interactive curriculum for k-12 students. The corresponding website exhibit uses RICHES Mosaic Interface to create a digital archive of related data. The public can use the project-developed augmented-reality app at more than 100 gravesites at the Florida National Cemetery, where they can access the UCF student-authored biographies of veterans.
