    Ahoy Navy League Members and Friends,
    Let's do lunch!
    The Pacific Merchant Marine Council was chartered six years ago, December 11, 2006, and we are celebrating Tuesday, December 11, 2012 aboard our adopted National Liberty Ship Memorial SS JEREMIAH O'BRIEN!
    You and your council members, your friends and your associates are invited. It's a party. We welcome you to celebrate with us.
    Our guest of honor is VADM Z coming over from Coast Guard Island. Others from within the maritime realm locally will be joining us as well. Already the San Francisco Council has indicated members will be attending. We're glad, the last two council luncheons have been with the San Francisco Council at Scoma's. Now it's our turn to reciprocate.
    Pass the word. We have space for 125 and we look forward to drinking every bottle set out for the social hour and filling every chair for the luncheon.
    Send in your reservation check - its important since we need to know how much food to order from the caterer.
    Heave Ho - as is commonly stated within the Merchant Marine.
