Great American's Birthday Today

Captain Clyde C. Lopez, United States Navy - retired, celebrates his 80th birthday today.  This great American enlisted in the Navy in October 1955 and served for 40 years, retiring in 1995.

His illustrious Navy career would fill volumes.  It is sufficient to say that he was a Sailor worthy of being called a Shipmate by all who know him.

He was born on this day in 1937 in Santa Rosa, New Mexico.

Sir, Happy Birthday SHIPMATE !!

Dittos, Steve. Worked with him when he was CO of Pyongtaek (I was with VQ), and again much later on when he led an IG team to the Azores. Always a pro and easy to work for. Happy 80!
