USS Houston CA-30 Survivors Association
and the Next Generations
11 November 2010
Dear USS HOUSTON (CA-30) Family and Friends,
Beginning with our Survivors and including all of those in our CA-30 family who have served our great country in our Armed Forces, we wish you all a wonderful Veterans Day.
Our thoughts go out this Veterans Day to the crewmen of USS HOUSTON (CA-30) "still standing watch over the Sunda Strait."
Our thoughts go out as well to the courageous crewmen of America's light cruiser which carried USS HOUSTON'S name back into the Pacific War - USS HOUSTON (CL-81) and the brave crewmen of America's powerful submarine which currently bears the name USS HOUSTON (SSN-713),
We honor you American servicemen of the past and present with our huge "Thank You".
the Board of Managers
John Schwarz, Executive Director
Sue Kreutzer, President
Pam Foster, Vice-President & Treasurer
Jo Klenk, Secretary
Jane Matthews, Chair of Scholarship Committee

Maybe he didn't want to bring anyone down, or maybe he didn't want to seem like he thought he deserved something for what he endured. Those explanations make sense to friends and relatives, who say he was endlessly humble and upbeat." (click the link for full story).

A Marblehead veteran is rescued from the Dutch waship that he served in for the Battle of The Java Sea. It is an amazing story. Most of the US sailors who were "loaned" for signal purposes to the multi national fleet opposing Japan were killed when those ships were sunk. A memorial in Holland notes the names of some of these sailors, a couple of them were USS Houston crew - on loan.
