Although the Academy closed in 1984, the site is still managed as a museum. David Elman's cadet picture came from the Augusta Military Academy Alumni Foundation where they have honored David and eleven other cadets who gave their lives in Vietnam. David's picture from about the age of 15, was from the year 1963.

  • Remembering An American Hero

    Dear PVT David Herbert Elman, sir

    As an American, I would like to thank you for your service and for your sacrifice made on behalf of our wonderful country. The youth of today could gain much by learning of heroes such as yourself, men and women whose courage and heart can never be questioned.

    May God allow you to read this, and may He allow me to someday shake your hand when I get to Heaven to personally thank you. May he also allow my father to find you and shake your hand now to say thank you; for America, and for those who love you.

    With respect, and the best salute a civilian can muster for you, Sir

    Curt Carter
