There will be another name engraved on the memorial in Joe Chilura Courthouse Square honoring service members killed in Operations Iraqi Freedom, New Dawn and Enduring Freedom.

Hillsborough County Commissioners on Wednesday honored U.S. Army Spec. Michael Davis Elm, who died Oct. 14 in Afghanistan.

This from my esteemed colleague Mike Salinero, who was there:

Elm, 25, was killed by an explosive. He was a recipient of the Bronze Star for valor, a Purple Heart and other service decorations. Commission Chairman Ken Hagan presented a plaque to Elm’s parents, Donna and Dennis Elm.
