Pequannock Post 450 Hosted a Quilt of Valor ceremony

For Ray Dymond enlisted in the U.S. Navy on his 18th birthday on January 5, 1944. After initial training, he was sent to North Africa from which he served in the European Theater on a destroyer and a mine sweeper.
One of his most memorable moments during that time was his participation in transporting troops to France for the D-day invasion. Had he been selected for the Army when he enlisted--which is what he wanted--he would likely have been among the countless number who stormed the shores that day and gave the ultimate sacrifice.
Soon after the Japanese became involved in the war, Ray was then deployed to the Pacific Theater via the Panama Canal on the same ship he was on in Atlantic waters. His most memorable times during his service in the Pacific included sweeping the mines around the Marshall Islands, fighting the Japanese near Iwo Jima and enduring a fierce typhoon on open water.
Ray completed his naval service conducting clean-up operations in the Pacific after the war ended, finally arriving back to the U.S. homeland in 1946.
Ray was arguably part of the Greatest Generation America has ever had, one of countless men and women who eagerly signed up to defend this great country and protect its freedoms, all the while knowing it could lead to their deaths doing so. It is because of their service and sacrifices that we still enjoy those freedoms today.
Ray Dymond received the Quilt of Valor today as a token of appreciation for the service and sacrifices he made during that pivotal time in our nation's history. Thank you for your service, Ray (Dad).
