The Veterans Day program Friday, Nov. 13 at the Lake Stevens/Granite Falls Rotary Club will feature Lt. Cmdr. Brian Danielson. He is a member of the Electronic Attack Squadron 129 for which he coordinates tactical training on the new Growler jet.
Danielson’s invitation to speak to the club is part of the Lake Stevens/Granite Falls Veterans Day program. He is the only child of Mary and Air Force Capt. Benjamin Franklin Danielson who lost his dad when he was shot down over Southeast Asia in 1969. What’s it like growing up without a father who went missing in action?
Always questioning whether he was still alive, still in captivity or worse yet, had he died in Southeast Asia. Lt. Cmdr. Danielson was raised by his mother. She was active in the National League of Families of prisoners of war and those missing in action. The organizations goal is to look for answers when a member of the military goes missing.
The Club meets each Friday morning at the Lake Stevens School District Educational Services Center, 12309 22nd St. NE at 7:30 a.m. Guests are welcome to attend the meeting and breakfast costs $10.
