Miami Pine Rocklands Coalition

Stessel Memorial honors Naval Veteran.

The Richmond Pine Rocklands is rich in History in addition to its natural beauty.  The history needs to help being preserved equally as much.  On Saturday July 18th, the Military Museum of South Florida, held a Memorial remembering the 72nd anniversary of a skirmish of the coast of Florida.  This skirmish between a Richmond Naval Air Station based blimp challenged a German submarine.  During this battle one US serviceman, Isadore Stessel, lost his life. The memorial held Saturday was held to honor his memory.
