Capt. Donald "Red" Lambert was called home.

Capt. Donald "Red" Lambert was called home.

It's hard to believe it's been 7 months since my father Capt. Donald "Red" Lambert passed away at the age of 81. There isn't a day that goes by that I don't think about him a hundred times. He was full of piss and vinegar until the very end. When I had my father cremated, he was wrapped in the Marine Corps flag, with his favorite drink in his right hand, and a picture of an anchor in his left. We drank a toast to honor him. I was so moved by his death that I created a new non profit organization to serve veterans. I want to create the first of it's kind, completely green comprehensive treatment facility for veterans. This City of Refuge will be open to all veterans nationwide. This will be a place of peace where veterans can come and focus on their physical, mental, and spiritual health, without any distractions from the modern world. If you'd like to help, I can be reached at captkeith4[at]

With Love and Aloha to all,
Capt. Keith D. Lambert
Founder, Executive Director
City Of Refuge Maui Veterans Foundation
140 Uwapo Rd. #25-104
Kihei, HI. 96753

Capt Red was one of my captains on the Hyline boats years ago along with Capt George Coughlin and the Scudder f as mily and Capt Jim Lynch. He ran a tight chip. He was on man who the whole crew respected.
