Dublin honored our veterans and servicemen on May 28. Here Peter Shonk is surrounded by the Sea Cadets on Memorial Day in our village center.
Lt. Peter Shonk USNR was a member of the Naval Air Corp from 1941-1945. He was assigned to the “Big E,” the USS Enterprise as a fighter pilot flying the F4Fs and the F6Fs, also known as the Hellcats. On his tour of duty he flew about 75 missions from the Enterprise.
The Dublin-based Sea Cadets include Chief Petty Officer Zach Letourneau, Cadet Sarah Letourneau, Cadet Jacob Weidner, Cadet Benjamin Graves, and Cadet Nicholas Graves.
The other cadets are from neighboring towns.
