"An early morning tribute
for a WWII and Korean War veteran"
At 3:45 this morning, Methuen Police officers gathered in front of our
station to show their respects to WWII and Korean Veteran, David
McCarthy Chief Petty Officer United States Navy Seabees (retired).
McCarthy, accompanied by his son Daniel McCarthy are leaving this
morning from Methuen and traveling to Hawaii where they will join other
WWII honorees in Pearl Harbor for the 75th anniversary remembrance and
commemoration ceremonies for the December 7th, 1941 attack on Pearl Harbor.
After the officers introduced themselves and thanked Mr McCarty for his
service, he and his son were given a police escort to Logan Airport by
two of our officers.
When they arrived at the airport, they were
met by Massachusetts State Police where they were assisted until
boarding their flight.
Join us in wishing David and Daniel a safe
journey and as we approach December 7th as a day of remembrance, please
take a moment to remember the incredible sacrifices shown by all of our
veterans, their families and loved ones both past and present.
"We Salute All Of You"
Chief Joe Solomon
