Through a fortuitous meeting with a retired military officer friend, I learned of a little known Navy program. The U.S. Navy is promoting itself as the place for young men and women to grow up, better themselves, learn a trade and become productive citizens. They're looking for business and community leaders to experience the Navy first-hand and then tell their friends and neighbors about their experiences so the word gets out to prospective recruits.

It's been 68 years since Eddie Felix worked in the boiler room of the USS Cowpens during World War II, but he recalls events as if they happened yesterday. The keynote speaker Monday at Mariners Christian School's 11th annual Veterans Day commemoration shared his naval experiences with a gathering of more than 700 students, veterans and their families. Felix, now in his late 80s, left his family for Navy boot camp two days after he graduated from high school. To calm his parents, he devised a secret code to let them know where he was stationed.

Former Newport Beach City Councilman Art Gronksy got a unique look at naval operations earlier this month when he and several of his friends -- including Cannery manager Bill Hamilton and Balboa Bay Club president Henry Schielein -- were guests aboard the U.S. aircraft carrier John C. Stennis. The trip was sort of a payback for the group of Newport residents, who are active members of the Navy League, a civilian support group for the military branch.

Truman, which is in the Middle East. They began raising funds last year and around Christmas mailed $12,000 worth of phone cards and personal notes to the crew.

Bryce Alderton In basketball, if you don't have a very tall team, you have to beat your opponent with a shooting touch and be quick of feet. Those are the qualities second-year Orange Coast College men's basketball coach Steve Spencer expects from this year's team, a team whose tallest player, freshman forward Sam Bailey, stands at 6-foot-6.

Young Chang With hymns and the tinkle of chimes hung on a branch, loved ones on Friday honored and remembered Richard Warren Knapp, a veteran of the Korean War who passed away Nov. 1. He was 70. Just one day before Veterans Day, Knapp's family remembered his life.

Don Cantrell Veteran television anchor and writer Tom Brokaw has predicted that the 60th anniversary this year of World War II will be an overwhelming event -- "the last anniversary a lot of veterans will live to see." And it is fair to say that untold Newport Harbor High athletes were a bright and integral part of the military forces that bravely struggled against the evil powers, German, Japan and Italy. Hence, this year's Memorial Day stands as a meaningful occasion.

In addition to family, friends, America and pie, here are some of my unconventional candidates for thanks and continued blessings this year. May God bless us one and all.
