Default Thank you, Veterans! - Remembering George / Add Your Veteran to the thread!

This Veteran's Day we're remembering our founder, George L. Towns, who served in the U.S. Navy's SeaBee construction battalion.
George grew up in the harbor town of Ludington, Michigan and served our country in WWII shortly after graduating from Ludington High School in 1943.
Thank You, George, on behalf of the entire E-Z Anchor Puller team and thank you to all our customers and family members who have served as well!

Who are YOU thinking of or remembering today?

Let's light up this post's comments with names and photos of our friends and family who have or who still are serving this great country.
Drop them below - we want to recognize and say THANK YOU for your service

You can read more about George's life and love for fishing and boating here: http://ow.ly/rOMy50Ci35e


George was a busy guy! He started his FIRST business when he was just 16 years old - a trucking business -
and went on to form and finance other interesting ventures and businesses over the course of his life,
most of which were related to maritime activities and local preservation in his hometown of Ludington.


E-Z Anchor Puller Mfg. Co. was one of George's last start-ups and by far one of his most creative endeavors
that benefited the hobby and lifestyle he so loved: fishing and boating.
In his youth he served in WWII as a Navy veteran in the SeaBees.
