About This Site

The Memorial to honor the short life and memories of a beloved son, brother, nephew, cousin uncle and friend Marine Pfc. Donald L Elliott was originally built as a simple site in early 2011. In time a new memorial would replace the old one in 2012 and now this memorial was launched only in February 2013. It is hioped it is worthy to bear his name. It was though a part of a much larger site. Since I am the sole editor, my fear is that being in poor health, my death might cause these tributes to two ourstanding Marines and friends to dissapear. So, on February 23, 2013 the domain " was registered. Although my name is on the registration, I am only the care taker. Should direct family members of this departed friend come forward, the site will be transferred to their ownership as well as the balance of the 3 year period. It is not my intent to take ownership of this name, but to preserve the name associated with a memorial to honor a great friend and a permanent part of our American history.

Veteran's Pages & Honor Roll

Out of respect to Pfc. Donald Elliott, the honor roll is open to ALL U.S. and NATO Veterans of ALL conflicts. From the Veteran's home Page, click on menu item "Sponsor A Vet". It is free and as editor, it would be my privilege to create a Memorial Tile.
