APRIL 2014 NEWSLETTER

President's Message  (by Linda L Grotton)

Thank you for all who responded to my survey in February.  We are trying to keep the mailing list up-to-date so that we are able to communicate with everyone!

We have had some exciting events recently.  We owe Mich Caron a big THANK YOU for coordinating the Pre-Christening Crew Breakfast last April 12 prior to the Christening of the USS Zumwalt at Bath Iron Works in Maine.  The breakfast was enjoyed by all.  I was also very excited that we were invited to accompany the crew and their friends and family members as they made their way to their seats for the ceremony.  We were able to sit among all the family members, as well as the young Naval Sea Cadets.  The Color Guard of the Jason-Dunham division of the US Naval Sea Cadet Corps presented the flag at the beginning of the ceremony, and they did a great job!

On April 17, a good number of us traveled to the Rusty Scupper in South Portland at the Coast Guard Base for the Sailor of the Year Awards ceremony.  I was able to present two awards:  USCG Junior Officer of the Year to LT Megan Drewniak, and USCG Junior Enlisted Person of the Year to Petty Officer Sean Dolan.

On May 9, we will be awarding two Theodore Roosevelt awards at the NJROTC Awards Night at Massabesic High School.  In the past, we have awarded the medal to a graduating senior, but the intent of the award is for a rising senior, so that she/he may wear the medal proudly throughout their senior year.  So as to not miss a class, we decided to give out two medals this time around. 

 

Joint Meeting with the Military Officers Association, Saturday May 17

Please see the attached flyer which provides details of our first joint meeting with our friends at MOAA.  Mark Patrick suggested that we try a joint meeting, given our common missions.  This sounded like a good idea, and will give our Navy League members who are not already members of MOAA another opportunity to meet and to hear a guest speaker discuss a very important topic. 

 

Come meet the Author of "They Called Her Reckless"
on Wednesday, May 21


Back in early March, I received an email from Janet Barrett regarding her new book.  I noticed that Janet hailed from Connecticut, so I contacted her to see if she would be interested in doing a presentation to our members.  She responded immediately and enthusiastically, and I'm excited that we will be hosting her here in Maine in May.  This is an event that we plan to promote to the Marines community as well.  You may pre-order a copy of the book when you register for the event, or we will have extra copies available for sale there.  Janet will also be available to sign her books for those who are interested.  Please join us, and spread the word to others who may be interested!

Brunswick Naval Museum and Memorial Gardens

http://www.brunswicknavalmuseum.org/

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.
