Article: Navy identifies Stethem sailor who went missing in South China Sea


The KATPO Board of Directors would like to extend their deepest sympathies to one of our own, Immediate Past President, Laura Hopkins, COMT. Laura's son, Lt. Steven D Hopkins, went missing from the guided-missile destroyer USS Stethem in the South China Sea on August 1st. The search was called off on Friday, August 4th. After speaking with Laura about ways to honor Steven, she chose to the "Steven D Hopkins Keynote Speaker" fund for KATPO. Laura said, "I can think of no better way to honor Steven than to have a guest speaker in his name. I think the keynote speaker is great."

Many of you have asked how you can pay your respects to Laura, Lyle, and Steven and this is what Laura chose. If you would like to make a donation to the keynote speaker fund, click the Donation Link below to be directed to a PayPal account, set up for this fund.
