July 30, 2015 is the 73d anniversary of the loss of the USS Grunion. Thanks to Brendan Coyle who wrote a book about Kiska, Capt. Bill Choate of Valor Tours, the bugler Allison Everett, and flag holders Michel Van Best and Arthur Allen we were able to produce the following video.

    ” Now is the time for all good men to come to the aid of their country” This was a typing exercise in high school days and it expresses what service is.
    The men of the Grunion and countless millions of others did just that when they took the
    enlistment oath to protect the United States of America during WWII.
    Today we remember and honor their dedication to the preservation of this great country.
