On Sunday, we were honored to host the 70th Reunion of the crew of the USS Honolulu, one of the most distinguished ships that served in the Pacific during World War II. Five of the seven attending veterans visited Eli’s Cheesecake. The ship had a crew of almost 900 and survived two torpedo attacks during the War, one of which occurred 70 years ago today.
This is truly the greatest generation and this may be the last reunion of the group due to health reasons. The story below from the St. Petersburg Times was written during the 2012 Reunion when 12 veterans were able to attend.
We are honored that we could have them enjoy Eli’s Cheesecake and Desserts, hear our story and receive our thanks for their dedicates service to our country.
