To the Honorable State Treasurer of S.C., Converse A. Chellis III...

I am Jake Jaccard, Webmaster of the USS Hancock CV/CVA-19 Memorial located on the net at www.usshancockcv19.com and a Life Member of the USS Hancock Association.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank you myself for your work in helping to save the LAFFEY from destruction. This effort is echoing throughout the Naval Veterans Community at-large. I have exercised my own efforts in helping in this great effort by requesting donations from my visitors on my Website(s) - I own and operate four major Naval History/Memorial sites.

There are no other options for the LAFFEY than saving her. She is one of the most historical and courageous ships in Naval History; she stands up there with USS CONSTELLATION, THE BON HOMME RICHARD, and many others such as the HANCOCK, CORAL SEA, YORKTOWN and INTREPID.

The Naval Museum Sites need to be supported in order to survive. The State of South Carolina is one such State that has taken the initiative to work to save such an HISTORIC ship as the USS LAFFEY DD-724. She fought valiantly to survive against insurmountable odds in WWII. She earned her right to survive indefinitely into the future. We as citizens of this country and especially those in the Naval Community need to step up to the plate in this effort to save this ship. With you sir, and many other caring individuals - true Patriots, we shall accomplish our desire to save this Historic ship.

So I thank you for your efforts to do so, and I know I speak the mind of all others who are involved in this effort.. Thank you sir! Your efforts will not go unnoticed, and your mind will be peaceful knowing you have done your best to accomplish this wonderful effort!

I will wish you a seafarers blessing, "May You Have Fair Winds and Following Seas - always..."
