    LPD-29 named in honor of LCS-122 Captain Richard M. McCool Jr.

    by Dennis Steenbergen

    It’s Official! A happy event today…Secretary of the Navy Richard Spencer announced today (05/02/18) the naming of a modern amphibious warship in honor of the World War II Captain of LCS 122 Richard M. McCool, Jr. The Board of Directors and many hard working Landing Craft Support Museum Members take pride in this announcement. We received word from Dr. Christopher Lehman yesterday.


    Dr. Lehman has been spearheading this effort for months. Many others has been working for years to bring this event to fruition. Like Captain Edward W. Molzan USN (Ret). Capt. Molzan has been working on this for years. Sending letters, and making phone calls to McCool family members and many other ranking US Government Officials. We thank Capt. Molzan for his hard work.


    I also want to personally thank our friend the honorable Dr. Christopher Lehman. Chris has been relentless in his pursuit to have a ship named in Honor of Richard M. McCool.


    My congratulations to the family of Richard M. McCool Jr. and all the LCS sailors that went to War so long ago to protect the freedoms that we enjoy today. The USS Richard M. McCool (LPD-29) will stand as a lasting monument for all.


    Please read Secretary Spencer’s press release, found at: http://www.navy.mil/submit/display.asp?story_id=105395


    Sincerely,

    Dennis A. Steenbergen (Denny)
