Bio and Links
Bio Photo U.S. Army veteran.

I'm a military researcher / historian whose primary area of interest is the World War II and Korean War eras. But my never-ending goal is to try to acknowledge the service of all our country's warriors who have honorably served in the U.S. Armed Forces.

To help achieve this goal, I created the Military Hall of Honor (a non-commercial website) in 2013 to honor all those veterans, living and deceased, and use it along with Find A Grave. MHOH now has over 314,000 Honoree Records. Membership is free and available to all who wish to contribute military records, bios, photos, honor the military with tributes, leave remembrances, etc.

RE: PFC Gary Eugene Elford # 82691040
Thank you, Charles. I make errors all the time, so I understand. There is a great deal of sadness attached to Gary's memorial, loss seems to do that especially that of the young. Best wishes.

Charles,

Please note: Corrections needed on Military Hall of Honor site for my brother PFC Gary Elford.

There is an error in what you wrote by including the name of Robert Jordan.

Bob Jordan was killed alongside Gary and did not survive that firefight. His buddy, PFC Randy Evans, did survive and managed to crawl up to one of the other squad's position. Hopefully, you can correct this.

I had not included Randy's name in the memorial I wrote for Gary. Randy passed away several years later in Portland and was interred in the Willamette National Cemetery.

Thank you.

Duane

Charles,

That would be fine to add my reflections there.

His information has been taken onto other sites without permission, so it's nice to be asked. Thank you for that. I had entered information on both the vvmf.org and virtualwall.com sites ages ago, and this is a complilation of those.

I miss Gary everyday. Over the years, finding the families of those who were with him, as well as having the Marines who served with him contact me and share their stories of that time and place, has been quite an experience. There is no closure, but there is a place to go to remember.

Best wishes.

Richard Jenks
Hello,
I was wondering if you would add a note to Richard Jenks # 100094610. His stone is beside Minnie Jenks #143306632. I don't know their relationship but she could be his mother. I asked both people that added pix to his memorial and they don't know. I have added pix of their stones and the stones are next to each other in Warren Cty Memorial Cem.
thanks Dhutson

Thank you for posting accurate data about my father, Robert Bruce Cohen. The day he died, May 12, 1968, was Mother's day of that year. He was my Bubbe Betty's only son.

Clark Manly Davis Korean War Silver Star Recipient
Thank you for posting the information on my Uncle Clark Davis on is contributions for the Silver Star he received in the Korean War. The Army has no records on why he received this Star as all the records were destroyed in a fire in 1973 and my grandparents deceased. My mother said they never discussed what happened, it was to painful. So no one knows the full story, so vague pieces. It is nice to at least know the medals he won. I have the Silver Star which my grandmother left to my son.
