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

|Lynne Herbert 💔||Thank You|
🇺🇸 Dear Sgt. Elstan, From the depths of my heart, thank you so much for your courageous service to our country. Thank you also for keeping the memories of our brave soldiers alive. It is so important that we never forget our brave military. I'm from a military family, and was also married to a Marine. He has suffered horribly for many years due to Agent Orange. I worked at MCRD for five years during the Vietnam war. A horribly sad and tragic time in history. Just seeing the Vietnam pictures posted of your deceased fellow Marines brings me to tears. Freedom Is Not Free. God bless you, all of our active military, Veterans, deceased military, and POW/MIAs. Let us never forget.

Thanks for submitting this memorial. I came across his monument yesterday during a recon of this cemetery. Pictures of monument(s) added.

I have spent three days going over records, and calling Chattanooga various burial areas. 155 to be exact. I can visualize the place, I just cannot remember the name of it and so far have not been able to contact the right person to lead me to the right cemetery for Sgt. Major Hinson. I am in NYC and will not be going back home to a neighboring state until Christmas. At that time I will make a trip to Chattanooga to re-find it if at all possible. One place I could not get on the phone, and I was told this may be my best lead, was Chattanooga Memorial Gardens off of Memorial Drive. Though he does not show buried there, I was told they would know of other burial sites on the North side of the river in Chattanooga.
One thing I can tell you, he graduated from Tennessee with a law degree, on the same day his father passed away. He was admitted to the bar in three states, never practiced the first day of law though. He told his mother he had gone to school as she wished, now he was going to do what he wanted to do. That was join the Army. Which he served until 1968.
Sorry I could not come through, but I do not give up on anything, so hopefully in December will get back to you with the details.
