Thank you again, and a Special Tribute to those who have given the ultimate sacrifice in defending and supporting This Great Country, The United States Of America! Thank you and may God bless all of our Veterans!
Duke was soon to emerge from this ship as it docked in Guadalcanal. He was to spend the next several weeks there recuperating.
As the guest speaker for the event, my husband Douglas Nykolaycuyk spoke on his behalf and shared some stories of Duke’s experiences both before and during the war. When Grandpa Duke was asked to share a few words, he regaled the audience for several minutes with his prowess as a boxer and skills as a fighter during the war.
He enjoyed the luncheon very much!
