From their amazing website:

Clarence M. Caskey, Chapter 9

Clarence M. Caskey Chapter 9 was founded originally as Port Angeles Chapter.  However, during WWII, one of our local sailors stationed at Pearl Harbor was among those who died during the bombing of Pearl Harbor.  His mother petitioned the chapter to have the chapter’s name changed to Clarence M. Caskey after her son.

We are dedicated to a single purpose: empowering veterans to lead high-quality lives with respect and dignity. We accomplish this by ensuring that veterans and their families can access the full range of benefits available to them; fighting for the interests of America’s injured heroes on Capitol Hill; and educating the public about the great sacrifices and needs of veterans transitioning back to civilian life.

  • Providing free, professional assistance to veterans and their families in obtaining benefits and services earned through military service and provided by the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) and other agencies of government;
  • Providing outreach concerning its program services to the American people generally, and to disabled veterans and their families specifically;
  • Representing the interests of disabled veterans, their families, their widowed spouses and their orphans before Congress, the White House and the Judicial Branch, as well as state and local government;
  • Extending DAV’s mission of hope into the communities where these veterans and their families live through a network of state-level Departments and local Chapters; and
  • Providing a structure through which disabled veterans can express their compassion for their fellow veterans through a variety of volunteer programs.

dock. Anyone dressed like a pirate can join the hunt, scouring the grounds and beaches for the “X” that marks the spot of buried
treasure.  Sunday from noon-1 pm.

In addition, MSA wrote a Biological Evaluation Supplement with the help of Port of Port Angeles personnel pertaining to the Coffer Dam project in the old graving dock area.

MSA divers also conducted extensive dive surveys in the Dunlap Towing log storage area in Port Angeles Bay and produced a habitat report of their findings.

North Beach in Port Townsend offers so much to anyone that loves to be in nature.  Eagles soaring over your head, sea glass laying in the sand on a beautiful sunshine filled day at a perfect 68 degree day and no humidity.  0519141139 (1)

These amazing eagles were just a few feet away when I took this picture.  0519141139a (1)I met a couple of people on the beach that were visiting from New York, and Georgia while walking the beach and they could not believe what amazing weather and beauty the Olympic Peninsula offers.  Many of these folks are planning to retire in the next couple of years and are visiting several states in order to make a decision on where they will be retiring.

Many of these folks think this area is too expensive for them to purchase their retirement dream home.  They are so excited when I talk to them about our current market prices and give them my website where they can search for current properties for sale.
