GREATEST GENERATION TOWN-HALL ON 75TH ANNIVERSARY OF PEARL HARBOR
16 Million Americans fought in World War 2. Today, less than 600,000 remain. December 7th, 2016 is the 75th anniversary of the start of World War 2. The USS Silversides Submarine Museum in Muskegon, Michigan will be hosting 10 of these amazing patriots in a town-hall style discussion led by a moderator and open to audience questions.
This is an opportunity to ask these Michigan patriots any questions and gain crucial insights from first-hand witnesses to one of the most brutal conflicts of the 20th century.
The opportunity to have so many of Michigan's Greatest Generation warriors in one place and open to questions may not come again.
The town-hall starts at 6pm and admission to the event is $5 or FREE for museum members and every penny goes to support the Michigan non-profit Silversides museum.
Work continues on the USCGC McLane with the goal of taking her to the Grand Haven Coast Guard Festival in 2017 for her 90th birthday! The forecastle, anchor chain, the mooring lines and the wheels on the brow. Next is the hull, primarily port side. Then we will refurbish the anchor windlass and the gusset, weather permitting. Interior projects remaining are the engine room (general cleaning of the lower level and repainting of the main walking deck), the boatswain’s locker (repainted) and the carpenter shop which we hope to clean and have it look like a functional carpenter shop. And that’s just for this year! More is planned for 2017. Donations are always welcomed and appreciated whether they be cash or services in kind. Please join the team & help us get to Grand Haven next year!
