Base Commander Sends



t is with a heavy heart that I send this message. Today, I received an e-mail from the National Office that informed me of the passing of James Henry III, on Sunday, November 26th, 2017. James qualified in submarines on the USS Hardhead (SS- 365) in 1957. He also served on AGSS-569, SS-426, SS-271, SS-475, SSBN-599, and SSBN-610. James was a CW04 when he left the Navy. He joined USSVI in 2003 and was a member of the Bremerton Base and the Holland Club. With James departing on Eternal Patrol, let it be known we have lost another hero. Sailor, rest your oar!

Poulsbo councilman Jim Henry dies, ending a life of service

Posted November 28, 2017POULSBO



Longtime Poulsbo City Councilman Jim Henry died Sunday, city officials confirmed Tuesday, drawing to a close Henry’s lifetime of service throughout his country.

Henry, 80, died in Florida while visiting family over the Thanksgiving weekend, fellow city councilman Ed Stern said. Henry's life was marked by service, council members said.

“He took a delight in everything he did,” Stern said. “That’s his hallmark characteristic for me.”

Following a 31-year career in the U.S. Navy, Henry retired to Poulsbo in 1986, where he soon began a second career in city government. He first joined the city’s Planning Commission in 1991 and was later elected to a term on City Council beginning in 2000. Henry spent 15 years on the city’s legislative body, where he served as one of the few African-American elected officials in Kitsap County in recent years, Stern noted. Read All
