Arrangements continue to be followed up for the annual picnic with our brothers in arms from the Legion and VFW in August. Our ball plans are falling into place, and I’m so pleased to inform everyone that Bill Nolan is in charge of reservations this year; so if you want a seat reserved with others, it won’t happen unless you sign up with Bill. Let’s make this a record attendance for our Birthday Ball. May brings to the front, our memorial service, and that is especially important for our membership to show their support as we are at war with a world full of terrorists who are dedicated to bringing us into to harms way. The Marine Corps leads the way once again in protecting our freedoms that so many do not realize are at stake. Rally round the flag members, and let’s work hard to bring in as many members as we can, while you decide which of our suggested motivators works best for you. I plan to place a motion on the floor asking that you support my suggestions for the winner of signing up the most members. Remember the choices, 1) 100.00 for a gift certificate to your favorite restaurant. 2) Your dues for three years paid for. 3) 100.00 toward our locker box offerings. I will be amenable to taking suggestions if the three I have put out are not satisfactory to the membership. I am also going to throw out the suggestion for an annual golf outing to raise money next year. It is not only a fun event, but it is one that allows us to bring many into the fold to have a great time while serving our organization with donations. I have the experience of over twenty years of arranging successful golf outings that has raised more than 10,000,000.00 over that twenty year expanse. This is not an experiment, and I urge you to support my efforts to launch a real successful charitable event to raise the kind of dollars that will allow us to better serve our community. I leave you with just one thought, let’s all have a great time together at our monthly meetings where we not only take care of business; but more importantly we join in a united front to support each other as the Marine family we have all committed to when we honorably served as active duty Marines and servicemen. Focus on fun and camaraderie! Keep up the good work and see you all at the next meeting in May! Semper Fi, Sr. Vice Commandant

Commandant’s Message May 2007 (The following message is from the Commandant of the Marine Corps.) 1. “To be a Marine is to be part of something that represents the best of our nation. It is to accept a way of life that embodies selfless service – to defend those who cannot defend themselves, to thrive in the hardship and sacrifice expected of an elite warrior class, to march to the sound of the guns, and to ably shoulder the heritage created by those who have gone before us. 2. Only a few Americans choose the dangerous and necessary work of fighting our nations [sic] enemies. As a consequence of that choice, some have paid the ultimate price, joining the honor roll of heroes who built the noble legacy of our Corps. For those of us who carry on that legacy, it is our obligation to honor those fallen Marines. As Marines gather in celebration of our history, we gather in the shadows of greatness – though our fallen can no longer participate in our traditions, they will always be a part of us and who we are. 3. Therefore, I am directing that all unit mess nights and Marine Corps [sic] birthday ball celebrations include worthy and appropriate tributes to our fallen comrades. Subsequent changes to the drill and ceremonies manual will reflect this requirement. Through meaningful remembrance, the sacrifices of ‘Those who have gone before’ will not become distant memories, but will live always in our warrior culture. General Smedley D.

Protect The Memorials, Support Our Troops Pictured from left to right: Bob Spano MCL with USMC vet Jim Kirlin from NJ. The turnout of U.S. Veterans and their supporters to: "Protect The Memorials" and to: "Support Our Troops" was a great success. The Memorials were well covered; the threats to our cause, aired by the "Airheads" of record on their web site, were empty threats and their bravado came to naught. Later several officials told me that this is the first time that a demonstration of this type was met by counter demonstrators in such huge numbers. They went on to say that the organizers were totally taken off guard and did not quite know what to do in this situation. It is time that we meet any and all such: "Troop Demoralizing" Demonstrations with a veteran led “Morale Building” Demonstrations!! Let these well financed and misguided souls spend their money and support the respective local economy in which they gather. We' ll continue to march and support our Brothers and Sisters serving and we will not allow a revival of the "Viet Nam Media Mentality" to set policy or control the national political agenda.

SPECIAL DELIVERY Through snow, rain, gloom of night and diapers . The scenario of sending a child through the U.S. Mail th wasn’t such a far-fetched idea in the early 20 Century. In 1914, a 2-year-old boy was sent from Oklahoma to Kansas (postage and the Postal Service delivered at children before it officially barred human beings later that year. via Parcel Post paid: 18 cents) least two other the mailing of Based on article in Smithsonian,Magazine.November.2006 J.J.V. Cook TIME MARCHES ON Marion Robert Morrison would have turned 100 on May 26. If he had kept that name, maybe nobody would care. But in 1930, film director Raoul Walsh changed Morrison’s fortunes, rechristening him after colonial general “Mad Anthony” Wayne, and a star was born. Soon, John Wayne would be a household name. The anniversary is being marked by parades, concerts and of course movies and Commemorative products. A three-day celebration in Winter, Iowa, includes groundbreaking for a new John Wayne Birthplace Museum and Learning Center. American History .June 2007 J.J.V.

During a Blue and Gray reunion on the field, so some have it, aging Confederates fell into ranks and walked across the broad terrain where Pickett’s men had charged on July 3, 1863. The watching ancients in Blue could not long remain bystanders, and as the feeble ranks moved up the slope toward the spot where once the angled stone wall had run, and where a clump of trees stood on Cemetery Ridge, there were Yankee yells: “Come on, boys! By God, they never made it then—and they’ll not do it now.” Upon which the old boys of the Grand Army of the Republic are alleged to have run into position along the ridge, and when the Confederate veterans hobbled up, to have sprung upon them tooth and nail, the whole mass tangling in a fierce scrap until the officials managed to part them.
