Honoring a Brother

Brothers,

I posted the following item twice on SigEps Facebook page - http://www.facebook.com/sigmaphiepsilon - but it was removed both times. So, I find myself here diligently trying to honor, respect and show brotherly love to World War I Veteran and NH Alpha Brother James Vincent Forrestal, the first United States Secretary of Defense.

The USS Forrestal (CV-59), the first of the supercarriers, served honorably defending America for nearly 40 years, and it is my opinion that it would be a disgrace for us to do nothing to prevent her from being scrapped when others, non-brothers, are willing to fight for her and the memory of our brother.

Ten seconds is all it takes to sign this petition, support those working to save this glorious ship, and show our respect to Brother Forrestal and all the men and women who served aboard "The First In Defense." http://www.ussforrestal.org/sign-the-petition
