We are Proud to display our Website Awards
Awards Page 1

I am happy to display the Awards the Hancock Memorial has won over the years. Words cannot express my gratitude to those who have honored us, since this website is and always will be a 'Joint Operation' - I say 'US' in a most appreciative way. Thanks to all of you who have honored 'US' in the past, and continue to do so now!

While this Website does not seek Kudos actively, as some do, when we receive one, we are very happy and excited!!

One word on the Links from the following Awards. I regret that some of the Links here may not work at the time that you click on them. Unfortunately, time has a way of changing things that are of value, and often, Websites change; Email addresses do the same, along with other references. When good folks 'go down' it is a grievous thing to all concerned. When searches on the Internet cannot resolve these losses, the losses become something we all must bear. This is true here, and with all the Reference Links on this Website. With that said, I hope you are successful in finding these sites and good folks, for that, they are! ~ Jake

"May I say that this web page is the most outstanding tribute I have seen in 15 years to the United States Ship Hancock! I have never served in her, however I have in my 28 years of Naval Service, served in MIDWAY, RANGER, KITTY HAWK, MIDWAY(SECOND TOUR) and DEYO. Having served proudly I thank you for your service to those who have served and gave their all to God and country."

Lt Robert K. Ramstad, USN, (Retired)

The above was originally an entry in the Guestbook, but LT Robert K. Ramstad,  USN, honored me so well, in his words above that I decided to include it as one of my Honors and Awards. Thank you LT Ramstadt! Lt Ramstadt may be reached by allowing Jake to forward your comments to him Here.

Subject: The Saving of the USS Laffey DD-724 at Patriots Point Museum, Charleston, SC.


My friend Art Busalacchi, a long time member of the USS Laffey Association asked me to thank you for your efforts on www.usshancockcv19.com on behalf of saving the USS Laffey (DD-724). You are probably aware that the Laffey was recently towed from Patriots Point to a drydock at Detyens Shipyard to complete the much needed hull repairs.

It’s a pleasure to be able to convey a message such as this.


Larry Jones in behalf of Arthur Busalacchi

Dear Larry and Arthur Busalacchi..

Thanks so much for your kind words. There is no greater honor for me than to seek to preserve history at its best. The LAFFEY won for herself a perpetual place in the annals of history, and I am proud to have been a part of this effort, even if it was a very small one.

I am going to place your comments on the Awards page as it serves us and the Veterans Community well, when such efforts are remembered, for it proves that the effort put forth in the preservation of History is a noteworthy and successful venture…

Thanks again, to both Mr. Arthur Busalacchi for your kind words; and Larry Jones of the Hancock Association!
