The Cincinnati Chapter of the Sons of the American Revolution (CCSAR) had a surprise visit.
The crew of the USS Cincinnati was welcomed by members CCSAR at their Wednesday, April 6 meeting held at the Montgomery Inn.
Captain Colin A. Corridan Commanding Officer, USS Cincinnati (LCS 20) mingled with CCSAR members, introduced the other members of his crew, and explained what a Littoral Combat Ship is, its role and mission.
Crew member Noah Coe was born in Cincinnati. We welcomed him home and thanked him for his service.
CCSAR President George Stewart presented the Captain and each crew member with a Challenge coin. The Challenge coin depicts the Sons of the American Revolution (SAR) logo on one side and the image of Fort Laurens (an Ohio Revolutionary War Fort) on the reverse side.
Captain and crew were almost as thrilled to receive the coin as the CCSAR members to be briefed about this impressive combat vessel, a key piece of the US military arsenal deployed around the world projecting freedom.
We are very honored by their participation in our CCSAR meeting and are grateful to them taking the time to share about their experiences on the USS Cincinnati (LCS 20).
