‘A once in a lifetime event’

By Jason Ferguson

Hermosa residents Linda Kramer, center, and Vicki Henrichsen were present at the Feb. 2 commissioning of the USS South Dakota Dakota submarine. They attended a reception at Mike’s Famous Harley-Davidson prior to the commissioning, where they met the submarine’s commander, Craig Litty. They presented him with two gifts—a Black Hills Gold cross necklace donated by Riddle’s Jewelry, and a five-ounce solid silver uncirculated Mount Rushmore coin Henrichsen’s uncle had given her.
