NASSAU, BAHAMAS – The family of Captain Whitfield Neely is grateful they all escaped with their lives after their yellow elder home went up in flames last Friday.

Neely is one of the most decorated officers to serve on the Royal Bahamas Defence Force. A national hero and one of 15 survivors of the HMBS Flamingo tragedy in 1980.

He’s also a former ambassador to Haiti and the Dominican Republic.

His son Osano Neely lives at home with his parents, fiancé and young daughter.

When we arrived we met a tractor clearing down what was left of the home.

Neely adds his father is a survivor of Stage 3 cancer and adds this is another test he’ll overcome.

Since the day of the fire, Neely has been active on social media, sharing the journey so far with friends and followers. He says the support has been overwhelming.
