Four of the seven who carried the original cross up the hill were subsequently killed in action, including Lance Cpl. Zurheide, Major Douglas Zembiec, Major Ray Mendoza, and Lance Cpl. Aaron Austin. The last time Elena saw her husband alive was when they said goodbye at the foot of the hill bearing the cross. This past year, on the Marine Corps birthday (November 10, 2011), the new 13 foot wooden cross was carried up the 3000 ft. climb to the top of the hill. Elena and her son Robbie were a part of the group that took the cross to the top of the hill. The next day, Veteran’s Day, the Cross was mounted at the exact location of the original cross. The memorial cross is dedicated to the memory of the four Marines who carried the original cross up the hill and were later killed in action.
