Cheers & Kudos: Thank you to Carson City for welcoming Charles T. Sehe

Carson City Council No. 347 of the Navy League of the United States wants to thank the Nevada Appeal for the fine job it did in alerting the community about veteran World War II Peal Harbor survivor of the USS Nevada Mr. Charles T. Sehe and his bucket list wish to come to Nevada. We are indebted to Mr. Ken Beaton for writing his story and the Carson City community for making his wish come true. Our community truly stepped up to the plate and donated the funds necessary to fly him here and give him a great Nevada welcome. They deserve a great big thank you.
