Captain Vincent Johnson, Commanding Officer at the Pacific Missile Range Facility on Kauai honored Stu “Bub” Burley on June 4th, 2019. The Memory of the man will forever live with the friends, family and service men and women who loved his spirit. For decades Stu was the President of the Kauai Navy League Council. Listening to his family and friends recall the memories of Stu for the 60 plus years he served on Kauai was, to say the least, a history lesson about Kauai, Barking Sands and the Navy’s history on Kauai. A great man, a great leader and a great friend to the men and women who serve to keep us safe.
This was even more significant as CAPT Johnson and his sailors as part of the day delivered very appropriately history on the Battle of Midway.
Thanks to the Leaders on Kauai, and those who serve the Sea Services, and our Navy League members who support them. Thank you to all for the great service and memorial dedication to Stu Burley. Thank you to Honolulu Council's Executive Director Jane Ferreira, Pacific Region President Don Morrison and Hawaii Area President Dave Livingston for attending and supporting the Kauai Council.
