We salute our Veterans . . .

The younger generations don’t always do a good job of expressing their gratitude to all the veterans who served and sacrificed on our behalf!

We’d like to call to attention the more than 3 million men and women who served in the combined naval forces in the Pacific during WWll.  In his summary of the War to Congress in March 1946, Fleet Admiral King presented this sobering statistic:

The casualties of the United States Navy, Marine Corps and Coast Guard reached the totals of 56,206 dead, 80,259 wounded, and 8,967 missing.

Hats off and a moment of silence to honor the memory of this massive sacrifice.  Hats off to the rest of the brave men and women who returned home and helped shape this great nation of ours!

Bill and Steve Kelly
