Admiral Leahy

There’s a committee working on creating a memorial to Admiral Leahy.   Lt. Paul Mathews has been working for the past year on bringing some of the Admiral’s letters, pictures, his desk and a 1/48 replica of the ship named after him.

Currently, we are still in the investigative stage of the process.

Here is the powerpoint presentation that Paul presented to a group of interested citizens.
