He received a B.S. degree from Gorham State Teachers College in Gorham, Maine in 1955. In 1956 he obtained his commission from Navy Officer Candidate School and then served successive sea duty tours on USS LYMAN K. SWENSON (DD 729) and on USS LITTLE ROCK (CLG 4). In 1962 he was assigned as Flag Lieutenant to Commander, Naval Service Forces, U.S. Pacific Fleet. Follow- ing this tour, he reported for duty as Operations Officer aboard USS JOHN KING (DDG 3). In December of 1967 LCDR Elliot volunteered for duty in Vietnam, where he served as Commanding Officer, PBR Squadron 57, operating in the Mekong Delta. Under his command, his squadron of river boats achieved an outstanding combat record. On December 29, 1968 LCDR Commander Elliot was killed in action. Ship ' s Coat of Arms The coat of arms of USS ELLIOT serves as a heraldic remembrance of the ship ' s namesake, LCDR Arthur James Elliot, II. The red, white and blue partitions of the shield are patterned after the insignia of LCDR Elliot ' s last command. Red is the symbol of courage, zeal, and leadership; white sym- bolizes integrity; blue represents devotion and preseverance. The unsheath- ed sword is symbolic of command, and its position on the shield, pointed downward, is significant of death in combat. The crest, composed of a mainmast and mainsail, symbolizes the Elliot family ' s long association with the nautical heritage. The pine tree on the sail is the symbol of the state of Maine. The ship ' s motto, " Courage, Honor, Integrity " , represents those values which characterized LCDR Elliot. The motto serves as both a guide and an inspiration for the men who will serve on USS ELLIOT.
