Thoughts and prayers for Captain Bob Peniston
#1

Sent to me by Tom Helvig. If anyone wishes to send a card, I'm sure he would be most appreciative.

 

We have just been advised that Captain Bob Peniston has recently experienced a mild stroke, and it has mostly affected his vision. He resides at an assisted-living facility in Lexington, Virginia, and we ask those readers of The Jerseyman that might have a chance to send the Captain a note, to please use the following address:

 

Captain Robert C Peniston, USN/Ret.

160 Kendal Drive, Apt. 324

Lexington, VA 24450

 

As a very brief look at Captain Peniston's outstanding naval career, it has included:

- US Naval Academy Class of 1947

- USS New Jersey (BB-62) as Second Division Junior Officer (Turret #2), and as Assistant Navigator

- USS Putnam (DD-757)

- USS Cone (DD-866)

- USS Williamsburg as Navigator, Presidential Yacht - President Harry S Truman

- USS Willis A. Lee (DL-4)

- XO USS Nicholas (DDE-449)

- CO USS Savage (DER-386)

- CO USS Tattnall (DDG-19)

- CO USS New Jersey (BB-62)

- CO USS Albany (CG-10)

 

(There are many friends at his facility in Lexington, and they are available to read any good wishes that are sent to him.) Captain Peniston will also be celebrating his 89th birthday on October 25th.

Many thanks...
