Tim Gray (Film maker & CEO, World War II Foundation)is seeking help in raising $5,000.00 to make a film about BMCM Raymond John Haerry's interment in the USS ARIZONA (BB 39) at Pearl Harbor in April 2017. 

For those who may not know, BMCM Haerry was an ARIZONA survivor from Rhode Island and the recipient of the Rhode Island Cross.  He died in September 2016.

Three generations of his family will be taking his ashes back to the USS Arizona at Pearl Harbor in April to be interred with the rest of his shipmates who died on December 7, 1941.

The film premiere will be around Veterans Day next November in Rhode Island.

The film will air nationally on over 120 PBS stations next November as well.

It would be great if we could get the word out to the VSOs in RI and to the CPO messes in Newport.
