Quilts of Valor
Do you know who celebrated a birthday on October 13? Here’s a clue – it’s not a person! It’s the United States Navy. October 13 marks the birthday of the United States Navy. The United States Navy is 245 years old. The United States Navy traces roots back to the early days of the American Revolution. On October 13, 1775, the Continental Congress established a naval force, hoping that a small fleet of privateers could attach British commerce and offset British sea powers.
Today I’d like to introduce you to LeRoy Semin, Airman 3rd Class Petty Officer, in the United States Navy. I honored LeRoy Semin with a Quilt of Valor as a way of showing my gratitude to him, for his service to our country.
He served in the United States Navy for three years. LeRoy was 18 years old when he enlisted in the Navy, just two months before his high school graduation, and two weeks after graduation he was headed to boot camp in San Diego. LeRoy trained from June through August of 1962. After boot camp, LeRoy served on the USS Yorktown CVS-10 for two years and nine months. LeRoy’s tour of service included the Western Pacific Cruise from September 1, 1962 through May of 1963.
