Deterrent Park Brick Order and Installation
Deterrent Park Engraved Brick for May 2013 Installation, Gift?
How about lasting memory of your family member(s) and/or shipmates? It would make a good gift and show your love and respect for someone.
Hopefully, before Memorial Day at the end of May, the base will make their fist engraved brick installation of 2013 on the missile deck of the mock up of the topside of the USS Woodrow Wilson. The bricks require a donation of $40 apiece which is deductible from the sponsor's federal income tax.
Please consider ordering up a brick or more if you desire. In the past families and groups have ordered up together. More than 2300 bricks have been already installed. The cut off for this order will be May 1, 2013.

Jan 15th General Membership Meeting notes
After opening ceremony, Sheriff Boyer, USSVI Life Associate MAL, gave a short talk on his duties, his career, family etc and took questions from the members. Of note that the sherriff's patrol has been reduced by 35 officers since 2008 and the ratio of officers to population would require an additional 175 to equal Bremerton's staff.
Base officers and committee chairs gave their short reports. All in order with dates of events and places updated in base calendar.

FLASH-01: War Veteran Status for 2013
Submitted by: Alfred H Singleman Jr NJVC on 12/31/2012
As of today we are 34 members over the 90% requirement for War Veteran Status. This means we good to go to take in Tax Deductable Donations for 2013. While checking the data base for War Veterans Status I noticed some Bases are NOT including time in service info in the applications for new members. IT IS VERY IMPORTANT THAT YOU FILL IN ALL THE APPLICATION INFO AND MARK THE WAR VETERNN BOX IF THE MEMBER IS A WAR VET SO THE DATA BASE IS CORRECT. Not doing so will affect our War Veteran Status and we need your help in keeping the number over the 90% limit.
There's been a lot of fog lately, but it cleared up enough on Wednesday to give USS Henry M. Jackson's crew a stunning view of the Olympic Mountains
