City to Dedicate July Summer Night Concert at HTC Park to Memory of Marine Pilot Capt Sean "Puffin" Elliott 1987-2017

Capt Sean "Puffin" Elliott died on Monday, July 10, 2017, while co-piloting a KC-130 Hercules cargo plane, a variation of the same aircraft he loved since he was 4 years old. He was known to his fellow Marines as "Puffin", a call sign that stuck as the result of his refusal to hunt the nesting and defenseless birds during a stopover in Iceland.

Capt Elliott, along with 14 other Marines and one Navy Corpsman, perished when their KC-130 Hercules cargo plane crashed in a soybean field in the Mississippi Delta. They were transporting an elite Marine Corps Special Operations Command (MARSOC) Unit with equipment on board, including small arms, ammunition, and other weapons for pre-deployment training from Marine Corps Air Station Cherry Point, NC, to Naval Air Facility El Centro.

The City will dedicate this week's Summer Nights Concert on Wednesday, July 19 at 6 p.m. at Historic Town Center Park, to the memory of Capt Elliott and his fellow Marines and Sailors. They will be honored with an invocation by 1/11 Marine Corps Chaplain Johnson at the start of the concert.
