Shipmates, I am sad to announce the passing of one of our WWII Hero’s. Robert Stahl departed on Eternal Patrol yesterday the 26th of January. Funeral Details to follow in a separate emailing to all.
The USSVI flag was posted at the Perrytowne Draft House on Perry Hwy in Wexford on Saturday April 07, 2018
The Vietnam Wall has arrived in Hampton township. Thanks to the shipmates that were on hand for escort duty. There is still plenty to do. There will be an opening ceremony on the 29th at 7:00 PM and we need ambassadors all day on the 3rd. Please consider lending a hand. Call Lou Hamill if you have any questions.
Here is the picture gallery for the memorial:
