Guest Book Highlights

November 13, 2017 "you were and remain my hero. I did two tours while you were a POW. I purchased the bracelet and other items that your wife and others offered to help you guys when I got home. I lost the bracelet somewhere but have everything else that I was sent. the hippies probably got it when they stole my uniform. I named my son after you, Jeremiah Huddleston. he is 39 now. He is someone that you would be extremely proud of. in fact, I truly believe that he is like you. beyond description. in this crazy world, I would really like to have more people like you. I think that eventually we will have the country that you envisioned. I thought of you guys a lot while I was there. I couldn't believe that you were so close and yet we couldn't help you. I'm so sorry that we couldn't. thanking you for your service seems so inadequate. I cant describe the gratitude I have to be associated with you. thank you very much." - gerald huddleston (kent, WA)

September 09, 2014 "I was privileged while stationed at Armed Forces Staff College to be one of the Admiral's drivers 8/74-8/75. I asked for his picture in uniform and he sign it as a gift to my grandmother for her 75th birthday, he asked you sure she would like that for a birthday gift? We laughed. While on assignments sitting at his house on brick row Naval Station Norfolk in the kitchen he or his aide LT Fischer would slip in while the mess cook's were preparing the meals and ask, 'have you eaten, be sure to eat... I wondered later in life if the ADM did that because of the many years he went hungry while a POW. I respected and loved him dearly. America's dear precious Admiral - Wishing you Fair Winds and Following a Seas. You will be soon in the arms of a Jesus Christ." - M Larcher-Campbell (South Portsmouth, KY)
