The 59 Veterans Introduces You to Channel Islands National Park!

Channel Islands National Park

WE’RE READY TO GO ISLAND-HOPPING WITH OUR VETERANS!

Off the coast of southern California, not far from a population of millions, is a beautiful domain: Channel Islands National Park. Consisting of five of the eight Channel Islands in the Pacific Ocean, the national park is rather isolated and relatively undeveloped. It covers 249,561 acres of which 79,019 are owned by the U.S. government. The Nature Conservancy owns and manages 76% of Santa Cruz Island, the largest of the park islands.
Half the park’s area is underwater and contains a unique and rare Mediterranean ecosystem originally settled by the Chumash people. They are home to over 2,000 species of land plants and animals that include the island rushrose, sea-cliff bedstraw, the island fox, bald eagles, orange Garibaldi fish, humpback whales, elephant seals, the California sea lion and giant sea bass. Sailing, snorkeling and scuba diving are a few of the islands’ outdoor activities.
To learn more about Channel Islands National Park, go here: https://www.facebook.com/channelislandsnps. And to learn about our project to help U.S. veterans, please visit us at http://59veterans.com/. Our lofty summit waits to be ascended!

TIME TO CELEBRATE SOME USMC OOH-RAH!

From the halls of Montezuma to the shores of Tripoli, November 10 every year (the day before Veterans Day) marks the anniversary of the birth of the United States Marine Corps. And this coming Sunday will be the 244th anniversary of the USMC. Thus, all of us here at the 59 Veterans look forward to November 10 and celebrating the U.S. Marine Corps Birthday and honoring this distinguished branch of the U.S. military!

“If the Army and the Navy
Ever look on Heaven’s scenes,
They will find the streets are guarded
By United States Marines.”
— Marine Corps Hymn

Time for some Ooh-Rah! 🇺🇸💖🇺🇸

Navy Petty Officer Mike Monsoor‏

This is but one reason why we should be so proud to be Americans!
 
Patrick The Poet
 

 


 Navy Petty Officer Mike Monsoor 

PO2 (EOD2)(Explosive Ordnance Disposal) Mike Monsoor, a Navy EOD 
Technician, was awarded the Congressional Medal of Honor posthumously 
for jumping on a grenade in Iraq, giving his life to save his fellow 
Seals. 

During Mike Monsoor’s funeral in San Diego, as his coffin was being 
moved from the hearse to the grave site at Ft. Rosecrans National 
Cemetery, Seal’s were lined up on both sides of the pallbearers route 
forming a column of two’s, with the coffin moving up the center.  As 
Mike’s coffin passed, each SEAL, having removed his gold Trident from 
his uniform, slapped it down embedding the Trident in the wooden 
coffin. 

The slaps were audible from across the cemetery; by the time the 
coffin arrived grave side, it looked as though it had a gold inlay 
from all the Tridents pinned to it.  This was a fitting sendoff for a 
warrior hero.
