Elkin's assigned unit is unknown but he mostly likely held the rank of Private.
He landed at Omaha Beach on D-Day of June 6th, 1944 as part of Operation: Overlord. Just after landing on the beach, Elkin was hit by German MG-42 machine gunfire from the coastal bunker. His wounds were so severe that his intestines became exposed from his abdomen, having been torn by machine gun bullets. He could only lay in horrific agony and cry out for his mother amid the carnage and chaos around him. Elkin no doubt perished shortly afterwards, as he had been mortally wounded to the point where he was beyond saving.
