The EBoard said they would notify the Bases of the Scorpion Assoc. desire and request that each Base send them $99 in memory of the 99 men lost in 1968 to fund a Memorial next year for the 50th Anniversary of the loss of the 589.  No funds from National, simply a request to the Bases.

Veterans notice:  All Veterans (all services) will be able to get a "Veteran" ID card.  This will probably be done at the local VA (undertain at this time)  but you do NOT have to be enrolled in the VA system to get a card.  This card will prove to vendors/ticket agencies, etc. that you are in fact a Veteran.  Time from is uncertain at this time but I will keep all informed. 
Also don't forget that next year the new Soc.Sec. cards will hit without the SS number on them. I don't know any details on this. 

There is a messaging program called the POC Network.  Each Base has a POC (Point of Contact) manager who receives the message and is directed to forward it to all Base Members.  Some Bases are not following up on this.  There is hopefully a plan in the works that with the new Web site, all members will get these and the POC Manager can retire with full benefits (LOL.)

I have been corrected on the POC bit.  The ability to message all 9000 USSVI people is not going to happen. 
Also found out that the DECKLOG system will go away.  100000 names+ bogs down the system. Contractor wants 7K to fix. 
Also found out the Base Web sites that were created with the old system is also going away.

It is a good thing and I mean that because some people watch what I say and help me  along..

Wrong on Deckloig.  It will be along in Jan.  The rest of the system will be on-line in about 2 weeks.

POC Broadcast info was wrong.  It will be in the system to email all members.  In addition BC's will be able to email their members and DCs will have a tool also. 

The Base Web sites are going away.  That should give Bases some incentive to design their own and buys their own domain which isn't pricey at all.  Plus they will not all be cookie cutter style and limited only to the Bases Webmaster's ability picture collection.  I see this as a plus. 

All good news gentlemen!
