Presented to Jack Downs, USN Retired
This award is presented to you for your outstanding contribution of several articles, appearing in the USS Hancock Signature and the Navy Times, available in the Public Information Office general Postings Area.
Aside from Pictures, life on a Naval Vessel, and more particularly on the "Fighting Hannah" has been best chronicled via News reports and releases and stories written by fellow shipmates. Your gift to the USS Hancock CV/CVA-19 Memorial is noteworthy and received with gratitude by the Admin Department, and the Crew at large.
Such addition to the Memorial has helped in making a visit to this website a memorable and rewarding experience for all, and has aided this website in maintaining it's standing as a Premier Naval History Website on the Internet. Job well done, sailor!
