New Castle County Council are the first, but probably not the last, to honor 3 Merchant Marines who demonstrated heroism on the Chesapeake Bay during World War II.
County Councilman Bob Weiner introduced the resolution to honor the 3 men who helped rescue crew members of a tug that had been attacked by a German U-boat near the Chesapeake.
For Weiner, honoring the men hits close to home.
Weiner says the merchant marines will be honored by Governor Markell later this week.
