Arranged by Chris Dyrek, January Speaker Co-ordinator, last week’s speaker was Rich Abeling. Rich completed two tours of Vietnam before embarking on a 32 year career in the aerospace industry. He retired in 2005 and pursued a passion for battleships by becoming a volunteer at the Pacific Battleship Center based in San Pedro. After an extensive competition, this group won the rights from the US Navy to maintain and exhibit the USS Iowa, the flagship of the greatest class of battleships ever built. This ship saw action in World War II, Korea, and Vietnam before being decommissioned. The ship was recommissioned in the 1980’s and outfitted with the latest technology, a fact Mr. Abeling attributes to being a significant factor in winning the Cold War. Today, the ship is opened to the public and one can experience up close and personal the ship upon which several of the defining moments of the 20th century took place. www.pacificbattleship.com/ Article courtesy of Kris Leonard. ...
