The US Board on Geographic Names denied my Proposal based on new coordinates which put the feature in a Wilderness Area. January 3, 2017, the WA Board rescinded its approval to denial status.

Coins and Coining

Skip Dreps took me to the Burien Office of the NW PVA to meet his long time friend, Ernie Butler, Executive Director and to pick up a coin so that I could take it and "coin" Robin Twyman, the British Consul who is supporting our Puget Memorial Project.

The NW Chapter of the PVA is a Puget Memorial Project Endorser. It was an honor to finally meet Ernie. He is a fantastic man, a paraylyzed veteran and a fellow Viet Nam Veteran who changes lives every day.

"Coining" has become quite the tradition in the military. It was an honor to "coin" Robin and introduce him to this long time tradition. This was Robin's first coin and my first time in coining someone. A great day for both of us.
