Chris Kopang - Penobscot Council President
It is with great sadness that I am informing you of the passing last Sunday of Chris. the President of the Penobscot Council in Maine. I had spoken with him several weeks ago and he was in hospice, still working for the FAA and beginning to work on the annual report and a replacement for himself. He was so proud of the work of that Council with the Coast Guard and their relationship with the Maine Maritime Academy. He will be so missed.

New England Region of the Navy League

VETERANS DAY PARADE
In the South Portland Veteran's Day Parade, the Sea Cadet's were led by their new sea dog: Seaman Gunner. It added some fun for the cadets and of course got them some notice. Seaman Gunner also visited the Veterans on the bus from the Veteran's Home and they enjoyed his "uniform."
JASON DUNHAM SEA CADET'S
P.O. THIRD CLASS MACKEY RECEIVES
THEODORE ROOSEVELT MEDAL
In two thousand twelve, Petty Officer 3rd Class Mackey was voted unanimously by his peers as the Jason L. Dunham Division, cadet of the year. PO3 Mackey demonstrates dedication to the mission and values of the Naval Sea Cadet Corps. He understands the value of education, community involvement and leadership. He is an top athlete and a team player, able to motivate and guide cadets in a positive manner. He easily earned the respect of the adult volunteers and cadets alike.

MILITARY ONE SOURCE LINK
For those active duty, dependent, and retired
military personnel, a link to Military One Source has
been added. It is a portal to all helpful sites and has
other helpful items of its own.
Our purposes are to maintain a memorial to those service members
who gave their lives in service to their country; and to promote a
better understanding and appreciation of the history of naval airborne patrol, especially the history of NASB and naval units based in Maine. To that end we will maintain the memorial and friendship gardens, establish and maintain museum facilities, collect and preserve artifacts, photographs, documents and other materials pertaining to that history, and among other things, mount ongoing educational activities including exhibits, research, publications, seminars, workshops, lectures and outreach programming. Since its inception, NASB has been a vital
part of the Brunswick Community and vice versa. This unique and
vital heritage needs to be preserved so that future generations will
obtain a better understanding of that heritage.
