This Pony Express is coming from Arizona to Arlington for William Livernois, U.S. Navy, Retired departing Arizona on 19 April for 25 April Honors at Arlington. The son of the hero will be going the distance and carrying the ashes and flag.
William John Livernois served this nation proudly in the United States Navy for over 21 years, with many years of sea service. Attaining the rank of Master Chief Petty Officer, William received many commendations including the Good Conduct Award (4th), the National Defense Service Medal, the Combat Action Ribbon, the Republic of Vietnam Armed Forces Meritorious Unit Citation (Gallantry Cross) and he received the Navy Commendation Medal “V” while aboard the USS Rowan. Master Chief Livernois also received a Letter of Commendation from the Commanding Officer of the USS Tingey in November 1963 for his actions during a collision between 2 destroyers. From service aboard the USS Rowan to the USS Tingey to the USS Okinawa and the USS O’Brien and even the USS Robert E Lee Ballistic Missile Submarine, Master Chief William Livernois epitomized the expression “Service Before Self”. His dedication and commitment to the United States Navy is second to none.
