Happy Birthday to Shorty Hagerman!

Today is Shorty Hagerman's 79th birthday so we had a big to do aboard the Savannah Lou.

You might remember Shorty is the AIMM Master at Arms and has been involved in the project for several years. He served during WW 2 on the USS Lexington in nearly every battle of the Coral Sea. He is quite the hero to us all.

In the top photo, Shorty and AIMM deck hand Chris Pointer share a guffaw about something.

In the bottom photo, Becky Taylor, Mayor Patrick H. Hays' executive assistant presents Shorty with a "Shorty Hagerman" day plaque that the mayor signed prior to leaving for a U.S. Conference of Mayors meeting which is the only reason he was not there to lead the celebration himself.

Anyone who visits Razorback is sure to remember Shorty and his unique style.
