Veterans Day

VETERANS DAY – A Day of Remembrance – I love my local veteran, John Menegat

John Menegat is all about service. Service to his family, to his community and to his country.
Born and raised in Arago, Ore., outside of Myrtle Point, he graduated from Myrtle Point High School in 1958 and joined the Navy. Serving as a Sonar Operation Airborne 2, John flew in Sikorsky HSS-1 helicopters, within Squad HS-8 off of the U.S.S, Bennington. He did search and rescue, dropping Marines on missions and hunting Soviet submarines. The Bennington was one of 24 Essex class carriers built during World War II, retrofitted afterwards as an anti-submarine aircraft carrier . . .
