Please take a look at some information at this PDF file that hopefully will explain how the the newly formatted Gertrude Check web site is organized, etc.
As with most web sites today, many links are used to quickly get you to something that may interest you, vice scrolling down a long page. Most will be bolded in Red or Navy Blue (with no underline, but exceptions sometimes); so please use your mouse cursor to glide over text and graphic to locate links.
Upwards of 10 browsers are used to view the web; Firefox, Chrome and IE dominate. I am not a professional and really do not have the time to check how Gertrude Check looks on even those browsers, let alone all the rest. My advice is to use one of the dominate browsers with the latest update. They are all free to download.
I expect to receive your help in working out the bugs. So feel free to help me (and provide content too).

Candidates for USSVI National Secretary
USSVI Western Region Director Nominees
Robert J (Bob) Miller,
PAST Western Region District 6 Commander
I want to represent every single person in the Western Region on the USSVI Executive Board. I will be soliciting what you want to do for the organization and what you want to get from the organization. If you see something that USSVI is doing wrong let me know about it and what should be done to correct it let me know t6hat too.
If you feel there is something that USSVI should be doing and how it should be implemented let me know that also. If you have any ideas as to how USSVI could improve their fundraising, community involvement, recruiting, commemoration of our lost shipmates and brotherhood activities I especially want to know those. We have a great outfit here but every organization can’t just sit on its laurels or it will stagnate. We need to constantly striving to improve ourselves, get our name out to the public, find new members, and find new ways we can honor our fallen shipmates. The E-Board can’t do this on its own. They need the input from you guys. You’re the strength of the organization. I want to be the channel through which you can get your ideas heard, acted upon and brought to fruition to make this organization what you want it to be. I will greatly appreciate your vote in helping me achieve my vision of the USSVI that you will be extremely proud to be a member.

2012 Fireworks (See Watch Bill)
It will be located at its traditional spot in front of the QFC on Kitsap Way in Bremerton.
Base Fireworks Sale Manager Mike Sullivan suggests that we join the TNT club to help the base make the most out of our hard work, selling fireworks. No matter whether you work the sale or buy fireworks, or not participate, you can still help. Join the TNT Club on-line. Besides their literature you will be sent a $10 discount certificate by snail mail and also one by e-mail for purchases totaling over $50. If you do not use them, turn both of them over to Mike and he will ensure that those credits are made to people that are buying at the fireworks stand, and it will not effect our bottom line, but will be used to encourage buyers to purchase over the $50 mark. Go to TNT Fireworks and sign up. The fireworks sale is our primary money maker that supports base functions and our charitable donations, like scholarships. Help Please!
