USN 1896-1918

Who was born and grew to young manhood at Christmas Cove. Bred in the tradition of the sea, he was swift to volunteer when his country entered the Great War. He won a commission for meritorious service and gave his life in heroic performance of his duty as an officer of the USS Ticonderoga when she was sunk in action with German submarine U-152, in mid-Atlantic - September 30, 1918. His example will speak to coming generations.
