I enjoyed spending time with Dr. Lyle Hancock and his Illinois-Sons (Rory and Keith) at the many Pearl-Harbor Remembrances they attended (Luncheons at Lamb's Farm, Wreath-Layings at Navy Pier, Video-making at COMCAST-Skokie, etc). I have volunteered to drive the other local USN Pearl-Harbor Survivors (Joe Triolo, Ed Block, and John Terrell) to the service for Lyle. [email protected] 847-362-1869
