Better Life State Command & Chapter #72

On April 7, 2015, the San Diego City Council will have on its Agenda the "Seaman Lakiba Nichol Palmer Street" renaming Initiative on the effort headed by Joe Rush, Commander of the American Legion Timothy Williams Post #310, with the support of the Palmer Family, the California State NABVET Organization and the Minority Veterans Coalition of California Southern Region's President Edward Ramsey. The event will take place at 202 C St., 12th Floor, San Diego, California. Seaman Palmer was killed on board the USS Cole DDG-67 in the Gulf of Yemen October 12, 2000. As a resident of San Diego, we humbly request the support of the veteran community as well as the City of San Diego.  The street renaming is in her honor as she is the first female killed while serving on board a US Naval Combat Vessel in a Combat Zone.
