Veteran's Corner

Our American flag, presented to patriots and those who have fallen

It’s a late winter burial of iconic Naval Chief Bill Morrison, being buried beside his predeceased wife at Irondale Cemetery. He is to be accorded full military honors. The chief served his country for 20 years — much of it involving intense combat in South East Asia seas during WWII. 

Honorable justice: the Gallagher trial

Regarding the recent military court martial of Special Operations Naval Chief Eddie Gallagher and his subsequent acquittal of charges — this event wakened the fighting spirit in this old Vietnam veteran.

First: Junior Navy Seals brought charges against Chief Gallagher for murder (killing an enemy combatant ISIS fighter). High military command, including the Secretary of the Navy (SON), approved this court martial.
