Coronado Junior Woman’s Club Annual Taste of Coronado Serves Good Food for Good Causes By Samantha Bey In the late 1970s, Robert Hanson, a professor of Recreation Administration at San Diego State University (SDSU) had become acutely aware that recreational opportunities for disabled children were sorely lacking in the Southern California area. He knew the tremendous benefits of camping experiences for children and wanted to make them a reality for every child, regardless of their physical abilities. A few years later in 1980, Russ Cahill, the Director of the California State Parks and Recreation Department, saw Hanson’s vision and brought it to life. The following year, Crown Cove in Silver Strand State Beach became headquarters for the first Camp Able, a beach-based day camp of aquatic activities coupled with traditional camping activities like singing, crafts, and campfires. Camp Able has now provided children and adults with a wide range of disabilities with joyful activities like sailing, canoeing, boogie-boarding, water play, and games for 39 summers. It’s a place where, rather than feeling limited by their disability, participants can focus on their own individual abilities and strengths. Camp Able Director Jen Branford recalled one experience in particular that represents why the camp is so special. A few years ago, one of their campers had once been a healthy teenage girl who’d contracted a rare infection that had rendered her paralyzed and on a ventilator. She was angry about her situation, and didn’t hide it for the first couple of summers she came to Camp Able. “She was really just hating on everyone Coronado Magazine

Factor at The Henry by David Axelson
M ost American businesses incorporate a catchy slogan into their marketing campaigns and The Henry, Coronado’s newest eatery located at
1031 Orange Avenue has adopted ‘The Greatest
Neighborhood Restaurant’ as their tagline. If the
two dining experiences the Better Half Sharon and I had last week at The Henry are any indication, they are selling themselves short. They should
insert the descriptor ‘Wow,’ in there somewhere, which was our first reaction to most of the food offerings we tasted.
he Henry Coronado is the fourth member of a
smallish restaurant chain under the auspices of
Fox Restaurant Concepts (FRC), with their other locations being in Dallas, Phoenix and West
Hollywood. In turn FRC, which is based in Phoenix, is under the larger umbrella of The Cheesecake Factory. The benefit to The Henry Coronado is FRC knows what works in the
kitchen from their previous locations and the recipes have been refined. According to Executive Chef Brian Drosenos. “The Fox culinary directors create the menus and then they come
and train us on them. And then we tweak anything that needs to be done to make the dishes for Coronado as opposed to Dallas.”
The first question most people ask about a new dining
establishment is, “What kind of food do they serve?” The
Henry’s menu might best be described as American Eclectic, which according to Chef Drosenos works in their favor. “We have something for everyone in your group. It’s difficult to get six people to commit to eat Italian, as an example. We
have a variety of dishes and cuisines and everybody can find
something they want to eat. The restaurant isn’t super-focused on being local and sustainable. But we source from Santa Monica Seafood and we use sustainable seafood. And we
work with Chef’s Warehouse to get as much local product as Page 14
possible. And we get our gelato from a company in North San Diego.”
Drosenos hails from Akron, Ohio originally and if
you are a basketball fan, you’ll recognize the name of his high school, St. Vincent-St. Mary, which counts three-
time NBA Champion LeBron James among their alumni. Drosenos discussed his culinary background. “I guess it
started with the obvious cliché of growing up and eating my grandmother’s food. My mother was fantastic, but it was always weird for me because for Thanksgiving and
Christmas, we always ate my Grandmother’s rigatoni with
three meatballs each. I don’t think I ever took a piece of the turkey during the holidays growing up.”
We have the best guests and people are happy and excited we’re here.
After high school Drosenos matriculated to the
Florida Culinary Institute in West Palm Beach, where he found the tropical weather to be a challenge. “The
humidity was wicked, and it always got to me. It rained every day, sometimes just for 20 minutes and it was so

muggy afterwards. I had a convertible when I moved
there, and I’ll never forget the first time I was stopped at a stop light. It was so muggy and uncomfortable. I was there for two years.”
His first job after graduation was at a restaurant in
Sequoia National Park, working for the conglomerate Delaware North. He considers the last two chefs he
worked with before coming to Coronado, David Burke of BLT Prime Steakhouse in Washington, D.C. and Giada De Laurentiis, the Food Network star who owns GDL Italian by Giada in Baltimore, as mentors. “Giada’s
restaurant was a pizza and pasta concept,” Drosenos
said. “Baltimore isn’t the greatest city, but it’s similar to Cleveland, so it felt somewhat like home and they have
the same kind of mentality. I spent a good amount of time in Los Angeles and worked at the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel. Then I went to the East Coast and I couldn’t
wait to move back to Southern California. Coronado is gorgeous, the weather is perfect, and I love it here.”
When Chef Drosenos was hired at The Henry, he and
his staff had two weeks from the completion of the re-
build of the location until Opening Day, which was Aug. 27, 2019. “Everything in the kitchen is brand new and I
took it out of the box with my own hands. The run up to

chef. La Rosa was one of six siblings and enjoyed helping his mother in the kitchen. La Rosa started working at 14-years-old in a restaurant while attending high school at Istituto Alberghiero in Gela, Sicily, geared to cooking and hotel management. When it was time to decide a career, La Rosa chose to be a chef. He soon realized that cooking meant being part of a team, something he really enjoyed. “I fell in love with cooking and started to create different dishes. In this job you can grow and learn something different every day. I never have the feeling I want to stop cooking. I do it with passion,” he explained. In his opinion, the most important things about culinary art are passion and ingredients.
Sicilian Cannoli For the dough: 250 gr. of flour (1 cup) 30 gr. of sugar. (2 tablespoons) 30 gr. lard (2 tablespoons) 1 egg 10 ml. Zibibo (Sweet Sicilian wine) or Marsala
Only fill cannoli shells as you get ready to eat them or the shells will get soft. Shells can be kept for a week or more in a zip loc bag. Ricotta mixture can also be refrigerated for a few days.
To prepare the dough: Mix the ingredients with hands or mixer until you have a ball of dough which is elastic. Wrap in clear plastic wrap and store in the fridge for at least two hours. Flatten the dough and put through a pasta machine until you reach 1.5 mm thickness. La Rosa compared the thickness of the cannoli dough to lasagna dough.
10 ml. of vinegar pinch of salt 2 gr. of cinnamon (0.4 tsp) One egg yolk
Using a round cookie cutter or small bowl, cut the dough into round shapes and wrap them around a metal tube 15 to 20 cm. Close the shape around the tube with bit of beaten egg.
For the filling: 400 gr. cow milk ricotta (1.6 cups or 14 ounces) 400 gr. goat milk ricotta
Fry in a fryer or pot of hot oil, (enough to cover the cannoli shells when submersed), when oil has reached 180ยบ C (about 350ยบ F). Once the shell turns brown take it out and dry. Once it cools off a bit, remove the metal tube and reuse to fry more dough. (In the old days bamboo was cut to size and used instead of the metal tubes for this purpose.)
(1.6 cups or 14 ounces)
For decoration or garnish
Prepare the filling by mixing the two ricottas and sugar with a fork. If you wish, add chocolate chips to the mix.
Fill the shells using an icing bag.
200 gr. confectioner sugar (.84 cup)
Chocolate chips Candied orange peels Pistachios
To decorate, add any of garnish of your choice along the ends of each cannolo and sprinkle with confectioner sugar. Enjoy!

Breaking Down the Brew As of August 2019, there were 216 locations in San Diego
county dedicated to brewing and/or tasting beer, most of which are craft
brews. San Diego is often referred to
as the Craft Beer Capital of the World.
Have you ever walked into one of these
phenomenal breweries, looked up at the ever-changing beers on tap list and just
been utterly overwhelmed or confused? Us too. We decided to break down the
brews for you so choosing and savoring this delicious, frothy beverage is a little easier.
So what is beer? It is a grain-based,
fermented beverage. To make beer, there are four main ingredients; malted grains, most commonly barley although wheat, oats, and rye are also used; yeast, water and hops.
Did You Know? Malt -
The starch in a grain isn’t ready to be fermented into alcohol until it has been malted, the process of soaking the grain, allowing it to germinate, and then stopping germination with heat, usually by roasting. The amount of roasting that malt receives has profound effects on the color and body of the beer.
Yeast - More like an agent for a chemical reaction than an ingredient itself, yeast is a single-celled organism which carries out the fermentation process by consuming sugar-rich solutions and creating more yeast. The waste products of yeast metabolism are alcohol and carbon dioxide, two must-haves to make beer. Water - This would seem simple enough, but since it makes up 95% of the beer ingredient profile, it has a profound effect on flavor. The chemical composition of a brewer‘s local water source has a large influence on the character of local beer. Water with a higher or lower mineral content such as calcium and magnesium, and bicarbonate, is behind the special qualities of beer styles we associate with particular locations.Brewers today have the ability to alter the chemical makeup of water to suit their needs and brew a particular style of beer. Hops - These delicate cone-like flowers of a vining plant secrete a sticky substance called lupulin when boiled. This substance counterbalances the sweetness of the barley, adds flavor and provides aroma. It also helps preserve the beer. There are more than 50 hop varieties grown throughout the world, greatly differentiating the beer profiles that can be created. Each hop
variety has a a level of bitterness measured by alpha acid content, which can be seen on beer labels and menus as the IBU, international bittering unit. This helps determine quantity needed for recipes and whether they need more bittering hops or finishing hops for aroma. As far as craft brews go, use of other ingredients to experiment with flavor is not uncommon. Fruits and coffee, chocolate and other sweetners are just some of the added ingredients you‘ll see in flavor profiles of beers. What type of beer is it? Most beers can be divided into two classifications; either the ale family, or the lager family. The distinguishing ingredient is the strain of yeast used, which tends to determine the manner in which it is fermeneted. Ales use a strain of yeast that works better at warmer temperatures for less time. This tends to create other flavors in the beer such a notes of fruit or spice. Lagers are fermented at cooler temperatures for longer periods of time creating a smoothness with purer notes of hop and malt and less notes of fruit or spice. So what‘s your style? Well, that can depend on a number on things. There are so many subcategories of these two main types of beer that the term style can even have varying meanings. With the amount of hybrids in exisistence and so many regional styles arising, styles of beer are basically limitless. It‘s in part why so many craft breweries can exist even in one area. That and the millions of beer lovers who enjoy trying new things or even those just happy sticking with their favorite brews.

When McP’s opened in 1982, the little Irish pub was a novelty. Today, still under original ownership, it is a respected member of the restaurant community, McP’s is one of the most popular restaurants on the island and one of the oldest. McP’s was the brainchild of former Navy SEAL Greg McPartlin. He said, “It was always my dream to create a restaurant where my SEAL Team friends could feel comfortable - someplace the community could also enjoy as their own”. And Greg’s dream has done more than come true, McPs has become a has become a place to gather, enjoy great food and create many, many memories. Locals, visitors, our men and women in uniform, and even furry friends all come to McPs because it is more than just a local pub, it’s a second home.

The Art Of Collecting
“You can’t be a real country unless you have a beer and an airline - it helps if you have some kind of a football team, or some nuclear weapons, but at the very least you need a beer.” --Frank Zappa
What is the art of collecting ... the compilation of that which is beautiful, desirable, valuable? Or is it something more?
What’s in Season?
The Little Trees - Broccoli While you can find broccoli all year round, it’s actual season begins in October and runs through April. The whole plant is edible, which often resemble miniature trees when cut up. It belongs to the cruciferous vegetable family (think kale, Brussel sprouts, cabbage, etc.), and originated in the eastern Mediterranean area. It was first cultivated in Italy during the Roman Empire and brought to the U.S. in the late 1700s.
The nutritional properties of broccoli make it a powerhouse. It is high in iron and one cup of broccoli contains over 100% of the vitamins A, C and K your body needs. It is rich in beta carotene, folate, and sulforaphane. It helps fight cancer, promotes bone health, helps form collagen (younger looking skin), and aids digestion.
When purchasing, look for heavy stalks with tight buds, a dark vibrant green in color, possibly with a slight tint of purple. Any yellowing says it’s past its due date. The stalk ends should be fresh and moist looking. Keep broccoli in the fridge, unwashed, stored in a loose, open plastic bag so it can continue to breathe. Eat as soon as possible, but a fresh cut broccoli could last up to 10 days. These “little trees” are perfect eating for the coming winter months, but luckily we can enjoy them anytime!

FOOD & DRINK
In China, the most popular winter food is Hot Pot, because it is a perfect way to enjoy a meal with family and friends without the food getting cold. Hot Pot is also well suited to warmer months, as Hot Pot dinners encourage conversation and a fun, communal atmosphere. Hot Pot is usually presented as a simmering communal pot of seasoned broth heated on an induction or alcohol burner, placed in the middle of the table. Raw or prepared dishes of thinly sliced meats, mushrooms, vegetables, a variety of tofu, fresh seafood, meat balls, soup dumplings and noodles, etc. are arrayed on the table at the start of the meal. Everyone boils their selection in the soup. The flavors of the fresh meats, seafood and vegetables enrich the broth, which builds to new complexities as the meal progresses. Everyone
from May Lyon
Traditional Chinese Hot Pot
takes from the pot and shares the food as each round finishes cooking. Each diner has a small bowl of dipping sauce that they or their host has blended as the Hot Pot heated up. Sauces usually consist of a soy sauce/ vinegar base with fresh crushed garlic, chopped cilantro, scallions, and chili oil. Other common ingredients are oyster sauce, sesame oil, sesame paste, fermented tofu, and pickled chilies. Hot Pot restaurants frequently have a ‘sauce bar’ that allows for a vast array of preferences.
Diners dip the food in the sauce, or transfer the cooked food into a small individual bowl to cool down first. This style of eating in which there are many rounds of food being cooked simultaneously at different rates (meats cook very quickly while starches like potatoes or taro may take several minutes) ensures that there is very little actual waiting for food to be cooked, but ample time for conversation. The focus of Hot Pot is on creating a comfortable and intimate experience for family and friends. One of the best parts about Hot Pot is that it is infinitely adaptable to each diners preference, feel free to personalize your meal!
Homemade bone broth: We boil pork spare ribs in a pressure cooker with salt and a few tablespoons of rice cooking wine for about an hour. We allow the broth to cool and then refrigerate it over night so that we can remove the layer of lard that forms on the surface. Just before serving, you can add chili paste or oil, large chunks of sliced scallions, a few dried goji berries, and cilantro.
Note: In a pinch, you can substitute canned chicken broth, we prefer Campbell’s, or prepackaged “Haidilao” or “Little Sheep” Hot Pot base that you can purchase from Asian super markets.

Confessions of a Perfect(ish) Mom by Hattie Foote
Grab your broomsticks everyone, Halloween is upon us! My enthusiasm for this holiday knows no bounds, I am downright giddy. I have always loved this time of year, but having kids really propelled me to the next level. Just like every other holiday, Halloween in Coronado is really special and there is no where I would rather be (except maybe Salem). The tricks and treats are unmatched, and this is how I make the most out of my favorite time of year. The obvious first step is decor and what is Halloween without pumpkins? One of my favorite fall photo locations is Summers Past Farms; it is the pumpkin patch that dreams are made of. After you take your obligatory Instagram picture, you can grab a wheelbarrow and load up on the goods. Iâ€™m super excited that we have an option closer to home this year! The Coronado Pumpkin Patch opens Oct. 18 at the Ferry Landing. It looks to be lots of hocus-pocus fun so bike, wagon or golf cart on over and have some great family time. Aside from pumpkins being the perfect festive decoration, we canâ€™t forget about pumpkin spice flavored everything. I love it all; give me pumpkin spice toothpaste for all I care!
PARENTING I have this vision of my family having a cozy night in, carving pumpkins around the table and sipping hot apple cider. I have tried it every year since becoming a parent and it never turns out the way I pictured it, but that’s parenthood in a nutshell! Inevitable meltdowns over the pumpkin guts or lofty carving goals that end in traumatizing looking jack-o’-lanterns are pretty much a recipe for disaster, but at least some laughs and funny memories are created to look back on. Speaking of making memories, my absolute favorite tradition is something my best friends and I started five years ago. What started as a cute first Halloween bestie pic, has turned into quite the yearly production. It has only gotten more chaotic when we added three little brothers into the mix. Should you need some costume ideas, we have you covered: Disney princesses; 80’s aerobics instructors; cat/mouse; superheroes; Pink Ladies/T-Birds. You should have and might have seen our circus take over Claytons last year for our shoot, wowzers! You will have to check into my social media (@hattiefoote) for this year’s big reveal, its gonna be pretty cute if I do say so myself!
Like many others, Toy Story had a big year in our household, so after many - (so so many) back and forth discussions, our family will be marching down Margarita Avenue as Woody and the gang. Speaking of Margarita, holy Halloween heaven. I am in awe every year, that street knows how to do it. The decorations are just insane, and the sense of community is treasured. A huge thank to all of the families that participate and make it such a magical night for all of us. An extra shout out to those who have poured me some witches brew along the way, thatâ€™s my kinda treat! This is hardly groundbreaking, but I like to make a hearty Crock Pot to have ready for dinner as soon as we get home to feed my werewolves. I feel like this is one of the nights they will actually eat all of their food in exchange for some of that candy! I hope everyone has a spooky and safe night and if you need to drop off any unwanted Reeseâ€™s peanut butter cups, message me for my address! Happy Halloween, Coronado! Page 66

kinds of delicious sweetness. I first had one from a street vendor in Poland and it was glorious. Yes, I ate pierogis too, of course they were amazing, but I am a sucker for sweets. Stroopwaffles also stole my heart in the Netherlands and I indulged in chocolate in Switzerland. I also ate potica in Slovenia and crepes in France. It was a good thing I explored these cities primarily on foot. It wasn’t all about the sweets. Any place I stopped to eat in Italy never disappointed. Fresh pasta, homemade sauces, warm fluffy breads with thick olive oil. I always left with a full belly and that wasn’t even indulging in the second piaitti, yes that’s right, two courses! I had to skip dessert to save room for gelato on my walk back. Then there were the cheeses. From fondue in Zurich, and Gouda in, well, Gouda. Living in Spain I ate the hard, buttery cheese, Manchego, and plenty of Spanish tortilla. My son was popping olives in his mouth and spitting pits out at age two and still wonders why when we sit down to eat we get soft bread rolls instead of picos, and though he doesn’t mind either one, he wonders why there aren’t any big, juicy green olives with it. I could easily go on and on about food; there’s a lot of it that I have tried, and a lot more I haven’t. Friends that were stationed in Japan have kids who love seaweed snacks. A friend from Korea that introduced me to bulgogi. I frequently hit up the international food section when I can. Now living here in Southern California there are all sorts of foodie influences available, expanding my appetite more than I knew possible. Even right here in Coronado there are so many options to savor. So do yourself a favor, venture out now and then and try something new, you could be pleasantly surprised. Coronado Magazine

Fall Fashion Fling 2019 By Jas Blynn This fall of 2019 is zooming us into the end of the teen years and into the twenties so to speak, with a more grown up, refined look coming. We must say our goodbyes to some looks that had our eyes rolling and shaking our heads.
Let’s look into the future, maybe with a tear or two, say goodbye to our teen years of fashion frolics before we step into the twenties next year. But first, let’s wrap this chapter up with our engagements and outfits till we ring in the fashion New Year of 2020.
Note that the big color is millennium purple right now. I was shocked how much purple was out there. So if you are a purple fan, then this is your year. However, I did embrace the pistachio color, a gorgeous accent to see. A new fresh color that not many woman wear and I was excited to see on the runway. It’s normally a spring pallet, so to see it in the Fall, was fun.
Outfit from Pretty Please Boutique
Dressing to look divine for the Coronado Schools Foundation Dinner and Benefit Auction, Oct. 19, you must shine. I mean that literally ladies! The black tie look for ladies is truly holding steady with a few changes. First off, what was silver, is now gold. Yes, everything you touch, will turn to gold! Gold was the star of the Fall 2019 runway shows for gilded gowns and evening accents. Silver was a no show. (Designers are as fickle as yesterday’s paper!) So ladies, go for the gold!
Next on the list for this event or the holidays is the luscious slip dress. It’s satin and comes in all colors. This is the dress to own. Some have drawstrings at the waist to help those problem areas and adds dimension. With a shawl over your arms, you are rocking the room. Keep jewelry to simple long earrings and bracelets. Add a slip-heeled mule. The purse should be small. This is the dress of the year, all season, all occasion. It will be the goto. You will see it and think, “never,” but try it. It has to be good fabric, lined, and like I said, good quality.

change from the neon trend we have seen.
With the Coronado Junior Woman’s Club sponsoring the 10th annual Taste of Coronado, Oct. 10, why not try the new glam, “have-to-have” blouse? The Renaissance look is here! The square collared blouse shows off your sexy collar bones from those days of Romeo and Juliet. The difference here of course is the luxury fabrics and some with boning in structure for the true effect. Wear with nice jeans, top with a cape, (which I must say is another major “in” this fall). Wear your rugged booties, add some stunning long earrings, (yes big earrings are still strong), and vavoom! You are Juliet 2019!
Blouse from Studio 12:20 Coronado Magazine
I highly recommend some of the biggest trends this fall for the Nov. 8 - 11 Coronado Island Film Festival coming up.
The cinched waist jacket is in. It is a suit jacket with belt. It emphasizes the female waist with the belt. You have no waist you say? Never fear, these high quality jackets are made with the slightest shoulder pads. They lift your posture and cinch your waist. Some, as you have seen, wear a camisole under, and well, (cough) some, nothing under. I will say, this jacket, usually sold with pants or skirts, is one of the best investment pieces ever. Think of the older movies with those jackets cinched at waist, how spectacular they were. And fabulous! You can wear this with a cigarette pant and slip on mule, then done! And looking like a movie star.
Outfit from Studio 12:20
Quilted patchwork is huge too. Anything in tops, jeans or dresses! Patchwork that is pulled together on fabric was shown at Louis Vuitton and Tory Birch shows. Believe it or not, this 70s trend was stylish looking and put together well. Think of a jumper you owned when you were small that had several different designs, and you could wear a simple black turtle neck with it and black tights. It all blended.
Notice that big bags are bye bye. This season it’s all about small bags, bags that you carry on your wrist. Okay, I don’t know about you, but I really do not care to hold a bag on my wrist. I think it’s just a short trend personally, since the designers make more money on the larger sizes. They are now making the clear bags for high security events which is nice too. Backpacks are still the rage. I think this trend will peak soon and they will be used by many for travel and work.
This wraps up the “teen years” as we move on to the new “roaring twenties” with 2020.

About Last Month’s Cover We were going for an end of summer theme when it came to the cover. While summer may seem to be over with the advent of school starting in August, Coronado enjoys some of its best, warmest beach days in September. So we went to the beach for an endof-day shot, trying to signify autumn’s approach. We got to the beach with lantern in hand, only to find that the sunset we had hoped for was not going to happen with the marine layer off the coast. We set the lantern into the dunes along dog beach and hoped for the best. The sky was full of shades of lavender and warm light tones. It made for a unique shot, especially with the candle’s light reflected on all sides of the lantern and the lifeguard stand and Point Loma in the background. Although we came back full of sand, it had been worth it. Coronado Magazine

Coronado: Birthplace of the POW/MIA Wives’ Movement By Heath Hardage Lee for the Coronado Historical Association.
Quite often, you don’t know when history is happening to you. Such was the case when women sat at Coronado resident Sybil Stockdale’s massive dining room table at 547 A Avenue in early October of 1966. Shirley Stark, Patsy Crayton, Jenny Connell, Debby Burns, and Karen Butler, pictured, were young Navy wives whose pilot husbands had all been shot down during the Vietnam War in enemy territory. All the men had been captured and imprisoned. Some would come home, some would not. At this point in the conflict, the women all had been told by President Lyndon Johnson’s administration to “keep quiet” about their husband’s situation. No one but close family should know of their horrifying scenario. After months had passed, the women needed relief. They realized that the only other people they could share this terrible burden with were other military wives in the same situation. Stark, Crayton, Connell, Burns, Butler, and many others in Page Page 82 82
Coronado CoronadoMagazine Magazine
the Coronado/San Diego area, including Pat Mearns, Chole Moore, and Shirley Martin, gained acceptance into a “reluctant sorority” of POW/MIA wives—a sorority no one wanted to belong to. Being the most senior Navy wife in Coronado, Sybil Stockdale took over organizing the gatherings. At first, the meetings were much-needed group therapy sessions where everyone could talk and share what little information they had. But by October of 1967, the women created a more formal organization, which they named The League of Wives of American Prisoners of War (later this title would include the missing also). The women began to reconsider the keep quiet dictate which they knew was not helping their husbands. In 1968, with the support of the Coronado-based League, Stockdale would be the first wife to go public in the San Diego Union newspaper about her husband’s POW plight. On Oct. 28, 1968, she declared “The North Vietnamese have
shown me the only thing that they respond to is world opinion. The world does not know of their negligence and they should know!” The wives knew well at this point (due to their top-secret coded letters to their husbands) about the widespread torture and the enemy’s constant violations of the Geneva Conventions of War. The U.S. government had been unwilling to acknowledge this publicly, afraid of upsetting negotiations with the North Vietnamese. Stockdale and her League of Wives knew instinctively this was the wrong call. Under Stockdale, the League of Wives organization would soon become national, and it would include POW/MIA wives and families from all over the country. In June of 1970, The National League of Families of American Prisoners and Missing in Southeast Asia would be incorporated in D.C. with Stockdale as its first National Coordinator. Due to the wives’ tireless advocacy, their insistent push for publicity about American
prisoners and missing service members, and their intense lobbying of Congress for the POW/MIA issue, the course of history would change as well as the role of military wives forever. History can happen anywhere, anytime, anyplace. In this case a dining room table became the birthplace of a movement that empowered these women to take a stand, saving American lives thousands of miles away. You can see this table and scores of related objects in “The League of Wives: Vietnam Advocates & Allies” a traveling exhibition at Coronado Historical Association (CHA) opening Oct. 5, 2019 through March 31, 2020, located in the historic 1100 Orange Avenue museum building gifted by Don and Leslie Budinger. The table is generously being loaned by Taylor B. Stockdale and will be on exhibit until mid-November. “The League of Wives” exhibition originated at the Robert J. Dole Institute of Politics in Lawrence, Kansas (Doleinstitute.org) and is curated by Heath Hardage Lee, the author of “The League of Wives: The Untold Story of the Women Who Took on the U.S. Government to Bring Their Husbands Home,” (St. Martin’s Press, April 2, 2019). Coronado was not only the birthplace of naval aviation, but was also the incubator of the POW/MIA movement. It is the proud home to many women designated by President Nixon as “the bravest and most magnificent women I have ever met…The First Ladies of America!” CHA is honored to host a nationally-travelling exhibit featuring many of Coronado’s “First Ladies.” Coronado Magazine
