I would like to thank you all for the information containing the history and legacy of the USS Bennington.
I am the son of George W. Lenz jr, who was killed durring the trials that occured off of Rhode Island in 1954.
My mother was pregnant with me at the time.
I was to be born on October 3rd of the same year.
My father also left a daughter who was 4 years old at the time.
It is difficult for me personally to think about the fact that I never knew my father.
When I read this information nearly 47 years later, it makes me feel somewhat closer to him.
Thank you for not forgetting all of the men who have perrished.
With Deep Appreciation,
George W. Lenz III
