|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.

Thank you for transferring this memorial to me. An additional thank you for serving our country especially during such a difficult war. My oldest nephew is a Marine, so I have a special reason for saying Semper Fi!

I have sent out a message to two different people in hopes they may have some information. When did you make this discovery? Only other option is calling the cemetery and make an inquiry.

The picture with "Fuller" on it ???? Was it posted here by mistake ?????? I don't understand it at all...Take care
|Kay Baldwin||Thank You!|
Thank you so much for serving our country!
As a Nebraska Daughter of the American Revolution, I just had the privilege of greeting 600+ Vietnam vets on their return Honor flight from Washington D.C. a week ago tonight.. It was very rewarding and long overdue!
Thanks also for posting photos to Find A Grave. It is helpful for studying my family tree.
I see you give permission to use for private use. I'd like to add them to my ancestry.com site but then that would make them available for others to use. What do you think?
Thank you for your time and service!

I'm sorry. I've got it fixed now.
|Mary||Just to say "Thanks" for your service.|
Hi, Saw that you created a memorial for Anthony Russo. Wanted to say a big thank you for yours and your family's sacrifice to our country. My Father was in the US Navy in WWII as were 3 of my Uncles in the Army in WWII. So, my family understands what you and your family endured! I also had several cousins in Nam and lost several friends there.
Thanks, too, for all the wonderful volunteer work (or maybe it's a labor of love) you do on Find A Grave. Continued blessings of good health so you can continue what you enjoy in life!
