Let’s Not Forget The Merchant Marine on Memorial Day, OK?

Let’s Not Forget The Merchant Marine on Memorial Day, OK?.

 

Thank you, Enchanted Seashells, for this reminder of the oft overlooked sacrifices of the Merchant Marine. Couldn’t have said it better.

I would be interested in seeing current data on civilian ships used in conflict today. I know that the U.S. Merchant Marine Academy is the ONLY federal military academy to have students (midshipmen) in war zones during its entire history, up to and including the present.

Remember the Merchant Mariner on Veteran’s Day

November 11, 2013

I can’t say it any better. Thank you, Enchanted Seashells. I have often advocated the inclusion of Merchant Mariners in Memorial Day and Veterans Day observances. I met the man who lobbied and fought for the inclusion of the Merchant Marine emblem at the World War II Memorial in Washington, D.C. Kind of sad that ater all this time it had to be fought for.
