Daniel and I sending along this article from our local paper- thought it might be interesting to share at your reunion in August?  We would also like to forward several more articles that will be printed in the next few days, one from the Boston Globe and the other one from the town of Hanover, Ma.  August 9th 2012, is the 70th Anniversary of the sinking of the USS Quincy CA-39.  The City of Quincy, MA. will celebrate the anniversary with a Navel Contingent, with a flag raising and the singing of the National Anthem, a wreath ceremony and prayer, and Daniel reading the names of his Shipmates that were killed in Action August 9. 1942 during the Battle of SAVO Island .
