Bio and Links
Bio Photo 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.

Thank you so very much for taking the photo of the Simpsons' gravestones. Family members here in Texas and California would never get to see the graves of their loved ones otherwise. You are most appreciated.

Kenneth Hamm
I found Kenneth Hamm's grave this morning but his death date has not yet been engraved on his stone. I will continue to check that when I go to Rosemont.
