San Francisco’s Italian Athletic Club Fleet Week Luncheon

Privilege to dine with Donald F. Reid today at San Francisco’s Italian Athletic Club Fleet Week Luncheon. Don served in the Korean War as a Marine machine gunner and was awarded three Battle Stars. Semper Fi! Don and his associates, who include former Peninsula Rep. Pete McCloskey, another Korean combat veteran, have raised more than $300,000 to build the $3.3 million monument. McCloskey, who retired from the Marine Corps as a colonel, is president of the foundation.
