Description:
Elvis held the concert on 25th March 1961 to raised mony to Arizona War Memorial. He put in $100.00 of his own money from his poket and the concert raised $62.000.
After Elvis death in August 16 1977 the Arizona War Memorial took his name down from the plate and they was saying that Elvis used drugs.
This is a Group on Face Book that is trying to Get Elvis. Name back on this Memorial, so if you all would like to join this Charity on Face Book then just join Face Book and Search for the Group Show Elvis some Charity as He Show Others! This is just So UnFair! :(

The plaque was moved outside somewhere a while back, I heard that was so from someone who had visited the memorial- however it was not in a place where it
could be easily accessed- ELVIS NEVER USED DRUGS for recreational purposes-
he was a human being who was having pain from problems within his physical body, he took medication like we all do under such circumstances. He had to be
put into the hospital when his meds stopped doing their job; new medication was
then introduced slowly while the old was being eased down. This is STANDARD
procedure for any person who is sensitive to certain chemicals as was Elvis who had had bad reactions in the past. The hospitalization is for the patients
safety and NOT BECAUSE they are DRUG ADDICTS or addicted. Of course
those who didn't know Elvis had health problems (these were kept quiet and
not revealed to the public or the press during his entire career) immediately
jumped to the conclusion that it was because he was "addicted to drugs" and
of course, many of his "people" did not know about his problems either because
there are always "loose tongues among any group of people" and Elvis did not
want his health problems in the headlines. He would rather they think he
was "hooked on his meds"...than let the world know how "frail he might be"
health wise. Reporters used to lurk in the bushes to get a "story" on him,
what better story than "Elvis is a drug addict".... yeah it sold and still is. The main point here, is everything that is printed or blasted off as news- is NOT
always the true facts of what ever it is.

:( I know Elvis didn't what it known about his Bad Health, but it is Just So Very Much Not Right. That Elvis has Never Gotten the Respect he So Deserves, because of of him Thinking that People wouldn't Understand that He Wasn't Frail But Just a Human Being like All of Us, Sometimes when I read where People will say will he Looks like he is Hooked on Something I would just Love if I could Reach through the Computer Screen and Shake Slap the Stuffens Out of them. I sometimes Wish that Elvis would have let The Media Know the Truth, and then Maybe Elvis would have been Treated like he should be Treated. :(

Thank you Wanda and Rose-Lyn , I like your comments about the whole stories.

But do you remember the press conference about his so called friends and the release of the book "Elvis what happened?" The press eats every words telling Elvis was a drug addict at the time in 1977. Also they say that writing the book that Elvis would change about reading it. The bodyguard didn't know the everything about his health at the time.

I remember well all the stories written about Elvis in 1977 telling that he died from a heart disease and telling also about the drugs. I say that something was missing and that didn't fit at the time. But for me at the time, I began to search for the true, but I didn't find it. I read books written Kathy, Charlie, Joe, Marian, one thing was certain all telling abouth his colon illness, but it's not very serious health problem.

The media was making big stories telling Elvis was a drug addict. It's sell a lot of newspapers. But the world didn't the true stories about Elvis illness,

At the doctor's office, and telling him (with no family support) and to hear about his illness and to face the reality of his falling health alone. I understand why he keep the secret from his family. He was very brave.

In 2010, I was re-reading all my books, and I say part of the the true is there somewhere, but nobody want to tell, like keeping a secret. I saw your web site, and read about all the Elvis illness in ELVIS - THE MAN. Also I did some research about his illness on the web, because I want to understand it better. I am not a specialist in medical studies. Also the Dr. Nick release his story too. When I finished the book about Dr. Nick. I write a personal letter of two pages, telling him what I feel about Elvis illness, and keep them from the media.

I didn't like people to say to me that Elvis died from drug and he was a drug addict. I say to them they didn't know the whole stories, and I included a list of his illness. After that, they can't say nothing, because I protect Elvis legacy.

:hello: Liliane even today the ones that are Left of the Memphis Mafia, are still saying to this Day that Elvis was Abusing Prescription Drugs. Even his Own Cousin is still saying this. I have to wonder if they are still living when the Autopsy of Elvis is Published if they will even Believe Anything Different, I have always felt that the Main Reason they said all of this Junk is Because they thought Elvis was suppose to Leave something in his Will for them. They Figured that since Elvis Soiled them Rotten when he was Alive, that they were suppose to been Spoiled with all of Elvis' Money when he Died. But now with the Media they Never what to let the Public hear anything Good about Anyone. So I'm not sure when this Stuff when Change, I sometimes Wish that Elvis would have Allowed something to be Said about his Health. So even to this Very Day 30 some Years Later, People wouldn't still be Believing the Lies. :(

Dear Rose-Lyn

I like what you say in last post. I understand. It's very easy to say that Elvis was on drug. It's sale a lot of newspapers but the true the general public didn't know about it.

At the beginning I was just a fan in 1977. I know what writing in newspapers at the time, but I say to me that something was very wrong about the whole story about Elvis death. But I didn't have any answer at the time. I begin to read book written by Kathy, Charlie, Joe but they didn't say much, only bit about his health.

I read about Elvis-The man, about his illness. I found it very interesting and to know more about them. But I want to read more. I buy the Dr. Nick book. I found very hard to read it, I begin to read it in part, and it take me three times before reading it to cover to cover.

After reading the Dr. Nick, I decide to write him a letter of two pages. Why he keep the secret about Elvis health for so long. Why go public and tell the truth ? I send it to the editor because I didn't have his address in Tennesse.

But sometime, it's difficult to tell the truth.

:hello: Liliane I think the Reason People Believe that being in the kind of Business that Elvis was in, he had to be Abusing Drugs. Because some people Believe that all Rock and Roll Singers do, that's just like People will never Believe Elvis Never Cheated on Priscilla during their Marriage. Because here we go again, being a Cheater is just Part of Being a Rock and Roll Star. :roll:

Dear Rose-Lyn

I like what you had wrtten in your topic.
I understand to say Rock n' roll, Sex, Drugs all go together.
ELVIS was the first American Idol at the time in 1955, and the media name him "The King of rock' n' roll", and became a trademark in his career. He was the first in everything that go at the time, movie, tv. In 1955, they say the same thing about him about the drugs. In 1977, the stories repeat again.

But the people didn't know much about his health in general. Because he need the drug to keep goin' on. He lived with the pain constanly at the end. And no know about it, because he hide it from the people he loves so much. Also he had the courage to do his concerts to sings all his hearts for the fans. He had a great courage to be able to do it at the end. But a story to tell the truth about Elvis health problems would not sell well in newspapers.

For me, Elvis wasn't a drug addict, he need it to be able to live a normal life with no pain.

:hello: Liliane Thank You for Liking what I have said, but it seems as though some People just can't Believe that Some One in the Music Business can't be Doing Drugs. That it is just Part of being a Singer, and another thing that gets me is that since Elvis was so Handsome and being a Famous Singer. He couldn't have been a Faithful Husband, that it was part of being a Good Looking Famous Singer to be a Cheater. :roll: :love:

yes, it was "important" to some people to put him down, after all, he had so much!
Revered and loved, bound to be some jealously in that! And he was loyal, he wanted one marriage, one wife and a family. He would have done just about any
thing to protect that family, he loved his wife but as often happens, jobs get in the way especially if there is distance involved. And a very handsome, charismatic husband gone "out there" so much, well, loneliness over time can bring one to have questions that aren't answered or perhaps not asked? and there is so much
time to dwell on what if's... It is especially difficult for young persons to cope with
being alone, having so much and thinking only of what one doesn't have; often
being lonely, not having enough to do and being "watched" if one did go out to
do something, and there were are those "friends" who tend to feed one's nagging worries... especially if those "friends" have nagging ones of their own...
Elvis said it was his fault, he said he was the one who wasn't home, whose career was more important and whose job it was to bring home the money which required being gone too much. And of course, he couldn't disappoint his fans who did happen to get a chance to "meet him in person" so he was
often "having fun, being Elvis and enjoying all the glamor and excitement away
from home. It is a good thing he had those wide strong shoulders----the weight of the world and it's "guilt" had to be really heavy.
