We here at Sound Experience and aboard the schooner Adventuress are deeply thankful for the women and men who serve, and have served in, our country's armed forces. We are honored to fly the American flag from our ship to show our support for our country and our troops. Thank you for your service to our country!
On a related note, did you know that Adventuress was in the military during World War II? Starting in 1943 she served as a patrol boat in the United States Coast Guard for two and a half years on the west coast of the United States.
Upon completion of her service, James Forrestal, Secretary of the Navy, wrote a letter stating, "it will no doubt be a matter of great pride and interest to you to know that ADVENTURESS gave valuable and excellent service in the important duties assigned to her. In recognition of the war service rendered by ADVENTURESS you are authorized to place in the most appropriate display location five chevrons, one for each six months active service with the Coast Guard."
Do you think we should apply the chevrons? We'll have to investigate how to properly go about this. Where should they go? Comment on this blog with your answers!
