Enclosed is the USS Fulton First Day Cover. My late uncle served
aboard the Fulton
sometime between 1943 and 1946. I had located the FDC and presented it to him
just months before he crossed the bar. He was proud of his time in the Navy and
talked about serving on the Fulton.
On his behalf, it is requested you post the FDC on the internet for all crew
members to enjoy. As for the original, you may want to frame and display it at
the reunions. I have enclosed twenty dollars for a two year honorary membership
in my uncle’s name, William Patrick
It is the duty of all veterans,
no matter the branch h of service to preserve military history and I am proud
to do so for the USS Fulton, her crew and the United Sates Navy.
