Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a retired mechanic-truck driver and a former Marine Veteran, 1965-1969. Charlie Battery, 1st Battalion, 12th Marines, 3rd Division, Vietnam DMZ 2 tours 1966-1968.
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 (friends or family) 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. (USE THE EDIT TAB!)

Semper Fidelis Sgt. Ed Elstan

Any pictures I have added you are welcome to use them for your personal use.

RE: York
No problem...I had actually created a new memorial and had the photo posted to it...I just edited your memorial and copied the photo & deleted the one I created. I'm glad we have the service members honored with a posting of their markers.

RE: Military Request
I will walk the remaining cemetery for recent graves and update the burials. I appreciate your hard work for honoring our fallen service men & women.

Thanks Ed, I believe that was an edit that someone sent me, but I should have caught it.
