    Dear Alumni, parents, and friends,

    As fall settles in here in Annapolis it is once again time to request your help in getting the word out to classmates, parents, and friends about the Wreaths Across America (WAA) event that will take place on Friday December 13, 2019 at 09:30 at the cemetery at USNA. I am requesting that Class and Chapter officers spread the word to their classmates and chapter members.

    This will be our 8th year to place remembrance wreaths at the USNA cemetery to honor those that have gone before and to remember their love for this country. Please help us cover each grave and the columbarium at the USNA cemetery with a wreath. Your donation to this program is ever so helpful to accomplish this. Below are the ways to purchase the wreaths. The wreaths are $15.00 per wreath, or by using the site shown below, for every two purchased a third will be given for free. (You will not see that happen as it is automatic).

    Directions for online donations:

    www.wreathsacrossamerica.org/md0011

    Just follow the red “donate” buttons to purchase your wreaths and to pay.

    Donations by mail:
    Wreaths Across America
    PO Box 249
    Columbia Falls, ME 04623

    Please write: “MD0011/MDUSNA” in your memo section of your check and make payable to: Wreaths Across America.

    The class of '81 will once again sponsor this event, if you wish to verify you may contact the class president, Otto Stutz at otto@1981.usna.com

    If you are in the Annapolis area Friday, December 13, 2019 at 09:30 please join us in this moving event, a great way to start off the Army vs Navy weekend honoring many, remembering all. Please help us, and take a moment to remember those classmates and loved ones that lay there in final rest by saying their names and honoring their lives.

    If you have any questions please feel free to contact me. Once again, I am asking that the class officers distribute this information to their classmates so others can see that this is an option to remember those buried at USNA. I will be glad to do any grave specific requests. Thank you for your time and effort for this event.

    Respectfully,
    Carol Turman

    The Military Officers Association of America (MOAA), Hampton Roads Chapter, has arranged hour-long submarine tours of one of the two nuclear attack submarines USS Boise and USS Albany.  Each sub will take 25 visitors per hour broken into 3 groups, each led by a crew member.  Tours will start at 9:00 a.m. and the last tour, if enough people sign up, will be at 1:00 p.m.

    Visitors must carry a picture ID, be at least 12 years old, be able to climb a 10’ vertical ladder unassisted  to enter and exit the sub, and cannot be claustrophobic.  Submarines have NO provisions for the handicapped.

    The subs will be at Pier 3 at Naval Station Norfolk. You need not be a member of HRCMOAA and you can bring other guests if they are current officers, former officers, retired officers, their spouses, widows, significant others, children, children’s spouses and grandchildren 12 or older. You can bring a non-officer friend if you need to bring someone with a military ID in your car or they are a special friend.

    There are parking spaces on the Naval Station near Pier 3

    You will need to leave all cameras, cell phones and other electronics in your car; they will not be allowed on the submarine.  Everyone will need a picture ID.

    To sign up for the submarine tour email bobpetraarmour@cox.net by Wednesday, September 11th. He will need to know:

    • Your name and rank, email address, cell phone number and your preference for an early, mid or late morning tour.  You will be the sponsor for any guests you bring.
    • The name, rank if applicable and relationship to the sponsor [wife, son, friend, etc.] of each of your guests.  Children must be 12 or older.


    He will send those who sign up for the submarine tour additional details next Thursday or Friday.  I will assign you a time for your party to be at Pier 3 on the Naval Station Norfolk.  Your wait time should be about a half hour but we will be ahead of schedule some of the time.

    On Weekends, Gate 5 to the destroyer & submarine piers is closed.  Enter the base through Gate 2, at the end of Hampton Blvd.

    Someone in the car will have to have a military ID card to enter the Naval Station.

    Six midshipmen traveled to northern India in order to experience the local indigenous culture and reflect on modern influence on an ancient land. Most of the trip took place in Ladakh, Jammu and Kashmir in the Himalayan range.

    Your Chapter Dues At Work

    Our Chapter has provided $2,500 to the International Programs Office each of the last three years to enable experiences like this.

    We hope to be able to continue supporting this worthwhile program!
