Bland and family grateful for ‘Dream come true’

Friday, August 31, 2018

Ronald Bland would like to extend a special thank-you to Mike and Paula Cluver, David Hultberg, the Bloomfield NJROTC, the American Legion and numerous friends and family members who made it possible for him to visit the U.S.S. New Jersey. Ronald served three years on board the U.S.S. New Jersey during the Korean War and is forever a Navy man.

This was a dream come true for Ronald. The staff on board treated him with the utmost respect and kindness, and gave him a true heroes welcome. This trip would have never been possible without the love and support of our amazing community, we all thank you all so much!

Ronald G. Bland and family
