Re: Website Award
I have looked over your Website, in honor of your father Gerald O. Day, and I found your web site to be a very touching tribute to your father and a fine ship.
You have ‘deployed’ your skills worthily of him and the men who served on the ship, and I salute you!
I can tell you loved your dad and was quite proud of his service to our country in the United States Navy (and Coast Guard). I am always happy to see web sites that honor our military and more particularly our Navy, and the men who serve. This is why I continue to operate an “Awarding Website” and am proud to present to you Award #40, struck only once, in honor of the...
USS SAVAVE DE-386
Please display the Award where all can see, and I sincerely hope that many will come aboard and recognize the ship and the men, for whom it honors.
Best Wishes and Fair Winds,
Ken “Jake” Jaccard, YN3, USNR-R
