Dick A. Hawkins, DK2

Aboard 03/65-07/66 as DK3


In Memory :

Dick was one of the "Ramrods" that started the USS Kennebec Assoc. by putting up this website. He helped the Assoc. to mushroom during it's infancy. His effects were appreciated and he is sorely missed by the Assoc. and all those who who knew him. A quote from a mourner also expresses the opinions of the Assoc.: "...The Navy signal "Bravo Zulu" means "Well Done".  "Bravo Zulu" to you...Dick."

Our sincere sympathy to his wife Sadie, his family, and those who knew him.
