IN BRIEF 100-year-old WWII Veteran from Scituate receives medals CRANSTON – On Nov. 4, U.S. Sen. Jack Reed presented 100-year- old World War II veteran and North Scituate resident Everett Edgar Grist with medals he earned for his service during World War II. A veteran of the United States Navy, Grist served as a gunner's mate aboard the SS Big Foot Wallace and the SS George W. Arthur, and was deployed to Italy, France, and England during the war. During the ceremony, Grist received the World War II Victory Medal, the American Campaign Medal, the European-African-Middle Eastern Campaign Medal, and the Honorable Service Lapel Pin (Ruptured Duck) for his three years of service in the Navy between 1943 and 1945. "We are truly grateful to Everett Grist for answering the call to serve. His exemplary service is a credit to him and a testament to his genera- tion," said Reed. "Mr. Grist exempli- fies the courage and extraordinary selflessness that is emblematic of our World War II veterans. It is my honor to present him with these long over- due medals, and thank him, on behalf of all Rhode Islanders, for his dedi- cated service to our nation." Grist was honorably discharged from the Navy in December 1945 and came home to his wife, Elsie, and one-and-a-half-year-old son, Donald. The couple had three more children, Linda, Sue, and Cindy. Married on Sept. 28, 1940, at Broadway Baptist Church in Providence, the Grists recently celebrated their 79th wedding anniversary. They have 14 grandchil- dren, 32 great-grandchildren, and four great-great-grandchildren. Several family members attended the ceremo- ny, held in Reed's office. Grist also served as a volunteer firefighter for the Chopmist Hill Fire Department and helped found the Scituate Ambulance Corp. U.S. Sen.
