This is the third year that Dave McComb has come to speak to us from Lake George, New York.
Mr. McComb is President of the Destroyer History Foundation, whose web site is recognized as a leading source for destroyer history.
He is a well-known lecturer at veterans events and on cruises to Pacific war sites.
Last year, in collaboration with the Naval War College, he founded the American Naval Records Society, which has begun bringing documentary histories of the War of 1812 and other important collections to the web, and is credited with giving new life to naval historical research in the United States.
Finally, Mr. McComb is the author of two recent books on U.S. Navy destroyer history. He is presently preparing a third book and editing a fourth—this last about the US Navy’s flush-deck destroyers, which are the subject of his brief today.
