Minutes of the Winter Meeting

  

The Winter Fling for HRC was held on Thursday 1/9/2020.  We wanted to try a meeting during the week to see how it would work out.

 

The venue was at RIB CITY in Virginia Beach., VA.  As you might guess there was no Egg Rolls on the menu.  Our Waitress Kellie, was great, food was great and all went well. 


In attendance:  (22) Steve and Sylvia Shafer (little late), Capt. Chuck and Louise Steinbruck, Joan Akers and daughter Sharron, LaRue Wright and her companion Clair, Jack Salvato (daughter Lisa was busy), Frank Muscari (wife Eve was at Church and couldn’t make meeting), Pat Scott, Kathi Clark, Leslie Dunn, Rachel Dunn. Dan and Carmen Lee, Bob and Carol Daigle, Fay and Donna Crossley and Dennis and Susan Pauly.  


REGRETS received from:

...Bob Steiner and Tammie


You may recall the name Rachel Dunn, expect it will be a name to remember in the future.  Very big things are going to happen with this amazing lady.  You might recall back in 2012 HRC had Rachel as a guest.  She is the Granddaughter of our great members Bud and Bev Scott, both passed away long ago.  She came to us from HS wanting to be a Meteorologist.  We set up meetings at the NWS Wakefield Office and introduced her to a wide variety of careers, from doctors and Meteorologists to Mrs. VA. Well, Rachel has gone to many schools and gotten some impressive degrees and credentials.  She continues her education in New York State (Hudson Valley) and though weather is a passion there was talk of working in DC at the State Deportment.  All the best to Rachel, we always want to help. 


The meeting was call to order by President Fay Crossley at 330.  The Pledge of Allegiance was led by the CMAA Frank Muscari, followed by a blessing given by Capt. Chuck Steinbruck.   The 50/50 was won by Joan Akers in the amount of $42.00.  Joan immediately returned the money to the treasurer as a donation to help pay for the Reunion AD cost. THANKS JOAN.   

 

The Secretary report was accepted as sent through Email to the membership.  After a motion was made by Bob Daigle and Seconded by Joan Akers, the motion carried.

 

The Treasurer’s report was also accepted after Bob Daigle provided the membership with a glowing report of our finances.  We have $2991.44 in our coffers.  The motion to accept was made by Fay Crossley and seconded by Jack Salvato.  Motion carried.

LTCOL Howard Lee, USMC RET

 Awarded Congressional Medal of Honor

 

   It is such an awesome feeling for me, at each of our Hampton Road Chapter meetings, to have Howard Lee in attendance. He accompanies Doris Stepaniak. You may recall that Doris is a life member of HRC and NWSA.  Howard just makes me feel good about everything.  Even though Howard is a Medal of Honor Recipient, there is much more to the man than this amazing award might command.

   Howard Lee was born on August 1, 1933, in New York City. He graduated from DeWitt Clinton High School in the Bronx, New York in 1951, and from Pace College with a Bachelor's degree in Business Administration, on June 19, 1955. While in his senior year at college, he enlisted as a member of the Platoon Leaders Class in the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve.  In September 1955, he entered the 14th Officer Candidates' Course, Marine Corps Schools, Quantico, Virginia, and upon completing the course the following December, was commissioned a Marine Corps Reserve second lieutenant. Lieutenant Lee completed The Basic School, Marine Corps Schools, Quantico, in July 1956 and the Marine Corps Supply School, Marine Corps Base, Camp Lejeune, North Carolina, that September.  Upon completion of these courses, he was transferred to the Marine Corps Supply Activity, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, for duty as Field Inspection Officer, Field Inspection Section, and later, Officer in Charge, Audit Section. He was promoted to first lieutenant in June 1957, and integrated into the Regular Marine Corps in January 1958.  Detached from the Supply Activity in September 1958, he was ordered to the West Coast, and served briefly as Troop Handler, 1st Replacement Battalion, Staging Regiment, Marine Corps Base, Camp Pendleton, California, then was assigned duty as a platoon commander with Company F, 2nd Battalion 9th Marines, 3rd Marine Division, serving in this capacity until June 1959.  First Lieutenant Lee next served as the Battalion S-4 Officer with H&S Company, 3rd Battalion, 3rd Marines, 3rd Marine Division, Okinawa, (US administration) Japan.  In February 1960, he was assigned duty as Guard Officer at the Marine Barracks, U.S. Naval Propellant Plant, Indian Head, Maryland.  After his promotion to captain on July 1, 1961, he was assigned duties as Platoon Commander and, later, Instructor, The Basic School, Marine Corps Schools in Quantico, where he remained until June 1964.  From July 1964 until February 1966, Capt Lee was stationed at Camp Lejeune, North Carolina, serving first as Commanding Officer of Company A, 1st Battalion, then as Battalion S-3 Officer with H&S Company, 1st Battalion, 2nd Marines, 2nd Marine Division. During the latter period, he served aboard the USS La Salle (LPD-3), and in the Dominican Republic.

 

Vietnam War — 1st tour

   Ordered to the Republic of Vietnam in April 1966, Capt Lee served as Commanding Officer of Company E, 2nd Battalion, 4th Marines, 3rd Marine Division. He received the Bronze Star with Combat "V" for heroic action on June 26, 1966 – June 27, 1966. Then, on 8-9 August, 1966 that he distinguished himself above and beyond the call of duty in the vicinity of Quang Tri, for which he received the Medal of Honor. Wounded in that action, Capt Lee was evacuated to the U.S. Naval Hospital, Bethesda, Maryland. In November 1966, he returned to duty at Headquarters Marine Corps and assigned duty as TO/MOS Coordinator and, later, Assistant FMF Readiness Officer in the Operation Section, G-4 Division. He was promoted to Major (United States) in July 1966.

   On October 25, 1967, Major Lee was presented the Medal of Honor by President Lyndon Johnson in a ceremony at the White House.

 

Vietnam War — 2nd tour

  Following this assignment, Maj Lee completed the Command and Staff College, Quantico, Virginia, in June 1970, then returned to the Republic of Vietnam for his second tour of duty. For his service as Executive Officer, Provisional Headquarters and Service Company and with the 2nd Combined Action Group, III Marine Amphibious Force, he earned a Gold Star in lieu of a second Bronze Star Medal with Combat "V".  He was promoted in July 1972 to lieutenant colonel and retired in 1975 from the Marine Corps for service as set forth in the following CITATION:

   Though Howard has no past affiliation with Naval Weather, we are proud at HRC, when he graces our tables as a friend and fellow serviceman.  At HRC’s special gathering on 2/10/13 one of the other special guests was so overwhelmed with the thought of being in the same room with “such a hero”, tears sparkled in his eyes.  We thank you Howard for your service and for being such a gracious friend.  We, at HRC, ask NWSA and its members to keep our heroes like Mr. Lee and all our service men and women, in their thoughts and prayers.
