A Couple of Heroes

It is always a special honor to meet a World War II veteran. We consider them each a true hero.

Charles E. "Nasty" Brown, from Albuquerque, New Mexico and Herman "Shorty" Hagerman, of North Little Rock visit during the Sea Fox reunion.

Brown served not only aboard the Sea Fox, He also made the 4th and 5th war patrols aboard the Razorback in 1945. While on the 394, he was a SC2 and told us that George Dement and he served together.

You will remember Dement was a plankowner of the boat and went on to serve as the mayor of Bossier City, Louisiana where he recently retired after twenty-years in office.

Hagerman served aboard the USS Lexington in nearly every battle she participated in during the monumental battles in the Coral Sea. He volunteers numerous hours aboard the Razorback and has been "qualified" as a submariner.

BZ men.
