Paying Our Respects...

4 years ago

On January 18, the Society took time to remember Congressman Hamilton Fish III who passed away on this date in 1991. Congressman Fish III was a veteran of World War I (Captain, 369th U.S. Infantry Regiment "Harlem Hellfighters") and a recipient of the Silver Star and French Croix de Guerre.

More importantly to the Society, Congressman Fish III introduced legislation which was to be among his most enduring and patriotic acts as a member of Congress. It was Resolution 67 of the 66th Congress (1920) which provided for the return to the United States the remains of an unknown American Soldier killed in France during World War I and for interment of his remains in a hallowed tomb to be constructed outside the Memorial Amphitheater in Arlington National Cemetery in Arlington. SHGTUS Member and former 1st Relief Sentinel Clifford Redden (1970-71) and his wife made the trip from his home in Flushing, NY to the Saint Philip's Church Cemetery in Garrison, NY. Cliff represented the Society as he paid our respects to Congressman Fish III by visiting his grave and laying a yellow rose of remembrance.
