My father is Frank Letourneau, and is a Vice Admiral. You will see him listed there. Our entire family is proud of what my father has done for our country. He fought in World War II aboard the USS Massachusetts. They fought in the South Pacific and in Japan. He brought back a sword he got on the shores of Japan when they went ashore. We are so proud of him, everyone that served on the USS Massachusetts, and everyone else who has fought for this country's Freedom. It is great that the USS Massachusetts has been commissioned in Fall River, MA for all to board it and see what it was to be at battle. If it were not for my father, as he has told us so many times over the years, the USS Massachusetts would never have been saved and brought to Fall River, MA. Thank you Dad! You have made thousands and thousands of people happy.
