FLASH-01: 2013 National Awards
All Hands: High importance!
The absolute deadline for award nominations is April 30th. As of this date, there is barely a small handful of nominations submitted. The Awards Program is an important and integral part of USSVI, as it is the only means we have of honoring and thanking our shipmates who have dedicated themselves and contributed to the success of our great organization, USSVI.
There are several categories to
choose from, and virtually every
Base has a member or members
that go “above and beyond” in
one or more of these categories.
It is our duty to acknowledge
these Shipmates by nominating
them for these various awards.
It is our way of saying “Thanks,
and Bravo Zulu” for your extra
effort to make USSVI the premier
veterans organization in the
Message from the Base Vice Commander
Hello all, I stopped by the VFW off National yesterday. I spoke with the commander and we will be on the agenda for the Memorial Day ceremony at Ivy Green. No date yet, but I will inquire. Actually all we need to do is show up early, speak with the individual in charge of reading the groups as they present their respective wreath. I will check on the progress of our wreath soon. I did get a letter last week from her and she has started it. Please contact me with any questions. Thanks.
To all Western District 4 Base Officers: (WRD4, please forward)
To all bases that failed to come to collect the "traveling dolphins" at our last base meeting. Please see if you can
show your leadership by making the effort in attending our April meeting (Tues, April 16th, 1900) with at least one elected officer and 2 other members to take the dolphins home with you. Of course the farther away you come from, the longer you may keep them as Bremerton Base will make every effort to get them back ASAP. Also you must share a sea story as required. Aar, Aar, Aar!
Still need Speakers at future Meetings. You or and associate may speak on any subject you desire for 20 minutes
Call me or e-mail me

Subject: WR DISTRICT 4 COMMANDER - NEED CANDIDATES
We have great bases in the district and traveling around
to their meetings and events is very rewarding, and you run into
some of the neatest people.

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.
