      Navy Leaguers were present at the unveiling ceremony this afternoon within the California Department of Veteran Affairs' Medal of Honor Hall. In fact, Captain Barton Buechner, USN (Ret) was involved. He is Deputy Administrator of the Veterans Home, Yountville and a member of the Napa Valley Council. He spoke on two occasions, general remarks on the Navy and its core values of honor, courage, and commitment. Then prior to the unveiling of Admiral William S. Sims, WWI hero, he read a short bio of the Admiral.

      The stamps are now available at your Post Office. Attractive first day covers - one for each stamp - are available at the Royal Oaks Post Office Sacramento.

      It was a nice affair, color guard, music, and the opportunity to buy stamps and the first day covers afterwards.
