Longtime USS Lexington volunteer and WWII Veteran honored

Veteran and volunteer honored

CORPUS CHRISTI (KIII NEWS) - On board the USS Lexington Museum on Friday, a solemn ceremony was held to remember a World War II veteran who recently passed away.  
 
The Lexington staff honored the memory of Merton Bobo who fought in the battle of Iwo Jima.  In recent years,  he was a volunteer aboard the Lex, in fact we highlighted him in a story last year during one of our Military Matters segments.
 
Bobo was 91-years-old.
