JOHN'S PHOTOS FOR THE WEEK

On December 1st, I attended the commissioning ceremony of the USS Thomas Hudner, the USN's newest destroyer. The ship is named after a Massachusetts Medal of Honor Recipient and I had the chance to see the ship being outfitted at Bath Iron Works in 2017. It was a pretty awesome ceremony and I was honored to be there, especially where my father was in the same place 70 years ago. My dad was part of the commissioning crew of the USS Des Moines, which commissioned at the same location in 1948. Pretty cool. Who knows where Johnny G will end up next.

I am always looking for photos of old Stoneham (Mass) apparatus, incidents or members for my personal collection if anyone can help. A digital scan is perfectly fine, I don't need an original as long as the scan is big enough to print out. I also can scan photos, slides and negatives and then give them back to you if that is easier. CLICK FOR EMAIL.
