Col. Kenneth M. DeTreux (center), commanding officer, Special Purpose Marine-Air Ground Task Force - New York, and other civic leaders rededicated the Col. Donald Cook Park in Brooklyn, New York, May 24. Cook joined the Marine Corps in 1957. During the Vietnam War, Cook volunteered to lead a nine-manned reconnaissance mission to search for a downed helicopter. Cook was shot and captured during this mission. Throughout his time as a prisoner of war, Cook refused to give information to his captors regarding the U.S. military. For this, he was given less food and often placed in solitary confinement. Even under such conditions, Cook gave most of his food away to other prisoners who he felt were in more need. He was posthumously awarded the Medal of Honor. Cook remains the only Marine to be awarded the Medal of Honor while he was a POW. Fleet Week is an opportunity for Marines, sailors, and coast guardsmen to show the people of New York what the Navy, Marine and Coast Guard team is, what they do, and how committed it is to serving this country. Twenty-one U.S. and coalition ships and more than 6,000 troops will participate in the 25th anniversary of Fleet Week New York, a celebration of the Bicentennial of the War of 1812, May 23-30.
