Veteran Honored

Clarence J. Dockery, second from left, spent some time with the Marines last Sunday at Alameda Point. "Doc," as he is known to his friends is an Alameda resident who served in World War II. He fought at the battle of Iwo Jima. "We were really excited to talk with 'Doc' and hear firsthand how things were," said Marine Captain Craig Thompson, pictured in the white hat. Thompson and the Marines gave Dockery a tour of the USS Hornet, which was decked out in her very best in honor of Fleet Week.
