Definition Of A Veteran

A veteran - whether active duty, retired, national guard, or reserve - is someone who, at one point in
his or her life, wrote a blank check made payable to The United States of America, for an amount of
up to and including their life.

That is Honor, and there are way too many people in this country who no longer understand it.

My name is Giovanna Hite, my dad served on this ship from 1952-1960.  My siblings and I know
every little about my dad’s service time, he passed away May 1990.  How can I find out more? His
name was Malcolm John (Jack) MacLean.
