Our speaker will be David Rajkovich, president of the Stockton Maritime Museum in Northern California and a few members of his staff. David will make a presentation on the non magnetic ships, minesweeping and ship Building. His organization is currently restoring the USS Lucid (MSO) 458. Our oldest active alumni John Frerichs was a plank owner on the Lucid in 1955.
We will host SGM(ret) Gavin McLlvenna, President of the Society of Honor Guard for the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier. November 11, 2021 will be the 100th anniversary of the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier. SGM(ret) McLlvenna will give us insights into the origins and history of the Tomb.
Mr. John “J” Wanders will talk with us on the USS LCI 713. Several years back we had a presentation on the LCI. This presentation will focus on the LCI as a (work in progress) Naval Museum. Mr. Wanders will also be auctioning a copy of his book, “The Ablest Navigator, Lieutenant Paul M. Shulman, Israel’s Volunteer Admiral”.
Mr. Wanders has on behalf of AFMM (Amphibious forces Memorial Museum) and PT-658 would like to extend an invitation for our entire organization to visit both ships On Saturday, May 16 (which is Armed forces Day). As you know, both ships are berthed at Swan Island. The PT boat is in its boat house. The LCI is moored at pier side in the Lagoon. Both ships are somewhat small, so in the morning one half of your group would tour the LCI and the other half a static (non-cruising) tour of the PT-boat. After a mid-day light lunch in the LCI’s mess deck, the two groups would shift and visit the other vessel.
