In Memory of George “Chris” Christenson

_____________________ In Memory of George "Chris" Christenson _____________________

It takes a special person to volunteer. It’s an even greater accomplishment to
offer to get a job done twice. His first choice, was to enlist in the United States
Navy, serving aboard the USS Basilone from 1965 to 1967 in 2nd-Division. His
second choice was to help organize the Basilone Association. He stepped up when
no one else would and organized the ships store and be the ships historian for
many years. It takes a special person.

He now serves a higher power and his loss is felt by all.
