President Tom Herman recently spoke with Mrs. Herbert Delbridge, owners of the “PURPLE HEART” fire truck. We found out that Herb had been ill and was in the hospital, but had no details. Herb suffered a debilitating stroke and not long after, his wife became ill and had a stay in the hospital as well. Both are now at home and doing fair. Herb is undergoing various therapies but can no longer speak or get around well.
Please see attached photos from our 2018 annual meeting.
The local chapter of The Marine Corps Society, in which Herb was closely involved with has taken over his fire truck. They plan to have it on display at Mission BBQ on Horsepen Road in Henrico on March 29th for an event there.
Cards & letters would be appreciated: send to 7033 William Harris Lane, Rockville, Va. 23146
Please keep Herb & his wife in your thoughts & prayers.
