Seaman 2nd class George Irvin Falgout, USN, a native of Raceland, Louisiana, was killed in action in the Naval Battle of Guadalcanal on November 12, 1942, while serving aboard the heavy cruiser USS SAN FRANCISCO (CA-38). While escorting a task force resupplying troops on Guadalcanal, SAN FRANCISCO was struck off of Lunga Point at 1416 by a damaged Japanese torpedo bomber, destroying three 20mm anti-aircraft gun mounts and killing 15 sailors, among them Falgout. He was posthumously awarded the Navy Cross for his great heroism and determination to defend his ship even at the cost of his life, when he remained at his gun, blazing away at the Japanese aircraft until it crashed his station. USS FALGOUT (DE-324), an Edsall-class destroyer escort that served during World War II, the Cold War, and the Vietnam War, was named in his honor.

Today we join with the National Archives Foundation in honoring the late Cokie Roberts. Born in New Orleans, Cokie was the daughter of Hale & Lindy Boggs, each of whom served decades as members of the U.S House of Representatives.
Cokie was a pioneer in journalism at a time when there were few women voices. Growing up in the halls of the Capitol, Roberts grew accustomed to Washington’s ways and quickly learned the ropes as a reporter and political commentator. Cokie was a supporter of the Old State Capitol and visited on several occasions with plans to speak next year in conjunction with an upcoming exhibit.
Reflecting on her long career, Roberts said, “It is such a privilege- you have a front seat to history. You do get used to it, and you shouldn’t, because it is a very special thing to be able to in the room...when all kinds of special things are happening.”
Tonight, Roberts will be honored by the National Archives Foundation as the honoree of its annual Records of Achievement Award and the launch of the Cokie Roberts Research Fund for Women’s History.
Happy Veteran’s Day and thank you to the brave men and women who served and continue to serve our great nation! 🇺🇸
