Joyce Lehrke, Naples
I would like to extend birthday greetings to a WWII Navy veteran who resides in Naples. Thurlow Miller will be 90 years young on April 3.
Thurlow spent five years on the USS Arkansas battleship. The ship participated in both the Atlantic and Pacific theaters.
Thurlow was awarded the French Legion Medal of Honor for his service.
We have an entire display devoted to Thurlow at the Museum of Military Memorobilia located in the Naples airport.
I love to tell his and other’s stories.
Happy birthday, Thurlow Miller. You are one of our many heroes.
