Two helicopters were flying in a remote area of the 1.2 million-acre Yuma Training Range Complex as part of a training exercise, when they collided, killing 7 men aboard.
Nick enlisted in the Marine Corps on May 4, 2009 and served as a helicopter crew chief aboard UH-1Y Hueys.
His personal awards include the National Defense Service Medal and Global War on Terrorism Service Medal.
Nick is survived by many loving friends and relatives, who will greatly miss him.
Let us pray to God the Father, Jesus, all of the saints and all of the angels that Nickoulas Elliott is in heaven. Let us pray that he is at peace and is with God. Amen
