Alexander Hamilton and the Founding of
the Revenue Cutter Service
He has published articles for Leatherneck magazine, the DAR’s American Spirit magazine and Financial History magazine. He is currently working on a book on General Jedediah Huntington of the American Revolution. He and his wife Pam own two houses from 1765: the Pvt. Samuel Hanmer House in Wethersfield, CT and the General Jedediah Huntington House in Norwich, CT. He was newly installed in April as president of the Connecticut Society of the Sons of the American Revolution. He is new member of the NOUS thanks to the services of his Mother, LTJG Dolores Vitka Cregeau (RN), and her Father, CAPT. Stephen John Vitka, USMC (Ret’d).
Naval Order Congress 2017
Following Hurricane Irma, with the some of the worst flooding in Jacksonville's history, the Naval Order Congress met at the Double Tree Riverfront. Lunch at Ruth's Chris, the Commander General's Reception, the Distinguished Sea Service Award Dinner, and a robust hospitality suite: great camaraderie was had by all.
Naval Order Congress 2016
Members of the New York Commandery attended the 2016 Congress at the Hale Koa Hotel, Waikiki Beach. The event was enjoyed by all. A most stirring visit to Pearl Harbor, where there was a wreath ceremony and casting of red rose petals over the USS Arizona. View pictures.
