Commander Puckett reports:
February is Americanism Month. It is also the month we remember “The Saga of the Four Chaplains”, who gave up their life jackets to the crewmen aboard the U.S.A.T. Dorchester and went down with the ship on that fateful morning, February 3, 1943 in World War II. Also be sure to remember the observances of Lincoln’s and Washington’s Birthdays. I hope to be back from my illness convalescence some time during the month.
I look forward to seeing you then. Please continue to keep our young service men and women in your prayers. Thank you.
FYI: We are going to send Ed Tyczka’s Grandson, Ben Sokolowski to Boys State this coming summer. More information to follow on this.
