LST 793 Memorial Donations


Dear LST’ers,


 In order to support this website for years to come, a memorial link for crewmembers has been created.


     The website currently costs about $120 per year to maintain as it is, which includes advertisement free, our own web address (, plus the space for the photos and other information.


Contributions can be made as follows:


$25  - for one crew member

$100 per calendar year will memorialize as many crewmembers as you like during that year.


The text you provide will be posted on each crewmembers page.


One picture per crewmember will be posted as provided by the family.  If no picture is provided, I will select one currently available in the photo archives.


     Another method of supporting the future of the LST 793 website is to make a living memorial contribution on behalf of yourself now.  This way, you can be assured that at least as long as I am able, I will maintain this website with honor and in honor of the crew of the LST 793.  For this, I would consider $100 appropriate, which is almost equivalent to one year of the website.  This contribution is in addition to other contributions.


     I will maintain a special bookkeeping account for this fund and deplete it each year for the amount paid to Yahoo Geocities.  Currently the website is paid from the general fund.  If this fundraising effort is a success, the general fund would no longer be needed to support the website.  


Checks should be made payable to me, as the webmaster, and mailed to the following address:
