A memorial service is planned here in Mobile next month for former U.S. Senator Jeremiah Denton of Alabama.
The retired rear admiral and former prisoner of war died in March at the age of 89.
Captain Hal Pierce, the U.S. Navy Port Coordinator in Mobile, told the Mobile County Commission Thursday morning the memorial will be held July 15th at the USS Alabama Battleship Memorial Park.
It is scheduled to begin at 10 am.
Pierce also asked the county commission to declare July “Jeremiah Denton Month.”
