|Bio and Links|
I am a retired mechanic-truck driver (3516/3531) and a former Marine Veteran, May 1965-May 1971. Charlie Battery, 1st Battalion, 12th Marines, 3rd Division, Vietnam DMZ 21 months May 1966-Feb 1968.|
I try to take the most legible pictures I can. I believe in recording history for future generations. This is the best way I know to HONOR and Remember the deceased. I am adding memorials from books and graveyards so others can find their friends and family members.
If you would like some one transferred to you just ask. -(USE THE EDIT TAB)- on the memorial you want transfered. Glad to do links and I will add obituaries to BIO section also. (USE THE EDIT TAB!)
If I can help you with information let me know.
Semper Fidelis Sgt. Ed Elstan
Any pictures I have added you are welcome to use them for your personal use.
A GENTLE REMINDER....please DO NOT SCAN obituaries and post in photo section. Per Find A Grave guidelines, they need, instead, to be typed and submitted as an addition to the bio section with the names of the living removed. Thank you.

|Living ||RE: Mount Avery|
Thanks for pointing out my lack of attention to detail. To atone I went to the church site and photographed the markers today. I forgot to take one of the church and cemetery in general.

|Living ||Cemetery Duplicated|
Just today I discovered the MOUNT AVERY M. BAPTIST CHURCH cemetery while driving down Jones Mill Road. I stopped and took some photos. When I came home, I found two listings for the cemetery on findagrave. One has a few photos and one has none. One of the listings should be deleted. I have eight photos to add to whichever one remains. Again thank you for all your efforts in this area.

|Lyn Johnson||Proud Daughter of a Vietnam Veteran|
Thank you for your service in Vietnam!
I am the proud daughter of Chief Warrant Officer Thomas Aubrey Johnson, 1st Air Calvary A-229th, Vietnam June 1967 to June 1968. My daddy is now fully disabled, side effects of Agent Orange. He to has had to bury many of his friends from this era, several were his childhood friends. So I am truly sorry for your losses. I was a bartender at the Carrollton VFW several years ago, and I loved it! I really got to know the Veterans by sitting down with each and every one of them talking, laughing, listening and even crying with them. Unlike most children of a Vietnam Veteran, my daddy did talk about the war. So I am very passionate and outspoken when it comes to Vietnam Vets.
My daddy wrote a book titled "To the Limit" by Tom A. Johnson about his Vietnam War experiences as a helicopter pilot. It took him 10 years and countless rejections before it was published. (Internationally in hard cover and paperback.) His book has been part of a healing process for so many Veterans and we are so grateful for this.
Again I THANK YOU FOR YOUR SERVICE.
Ms. Lyn Johnson
P.S. The book can be found on Amazon.com or my email address is on my profile page.

I am a long ago friend of Sarah Ellen Spangler Long and can give you a little Information about her but I do not have her obituary and do not believe there was one published giving personal details. Sarah was born in Atlanta Ga, to Major Paul and Dolly Ivey Spangler, she has one sister, Pauline Spangler. She married Calhoun A. Long, Jr. in December 1950 at Gordon Street Baptist Church, Atlanta, Ga. Sarah and Cal had three children, two of which are deceased, one son survives, Calhoun A. Long III, as well as Five Grandaughters and one Grandson. I am not sure where Sarah's Parents are buried but think it is very likely Westview in Atlanta. Thanks so much for entering Sarah and her Husband on Find A Grave.
I am a contributor on Find A Grave mostly for my own family.
