NLUS October 2012 Digital Edition: P. 58 Fund-raiser aboard presidential yacht benefits Sea Cadets
- Ahoy Members and Friends,Once again, our Arkansas Division Sea Cadets and the Band of the West has a write up and photo in the Navy League's SeaPower magazine. First it was the performance of the band at the USNSCC Pacific Central Region Officers Call in the April edition (see http://groups.yahoo.com/group/PMMC-NLUS/message/1158 or if you still have that issue check it out). Now it is P. 58 Fund-raiser aboard presidential yacht benefits Sea Cadets, http://www.seapower-digital.com/seapower/sample#pg58. The article along with a photo actually spreads across three pages.The NLUS membership statistics, P. 59, continue to show Phelps Hobart, Don Hale, and the Pacific Merchant Marine Council as prominent recruiters. But we need to do better; due to attrition our council growth remains stagnant. We have a membership special going on; new three year memberships $75 instead of $125 and life memberships $450 instead of $500. We will even throw in a complementary lunch for our Tuesday, December 11, Christmas party with VADM Paul F. Zukunft, USCG, Commander Pacific Area. WE WELCOME NEW MEMBERS! To take advantage of this - contact me.Couple of more messages coming your way.Heave Ho,Phelps(916) 739-6949----- Original Message -----From: SEAPOWER EditorTo: nlsac@...Sent: Monday, September 24, 2012 9:06 AMSubject: NLUS October 2012 Digital EditionThe October 2012 issue of SEAPOWER

“The army still does the army thing. The police still does its thing. What it becomes if you don’t coordinate it is 6-year-old soccer. Everybody just follows the ball. It moves in a blob. We don’t want that. We want people to play positions and be ready to respond to each other if they have trouble.”
Maj. Gen. Charles M. Gurganus, Commanding General for I Marine Expeditionary Force Forward
On ensuring coordination between Afghan national security forces as the U.S. forces draw down and leave more responsibility in Afghan hands. — San Diego Union Tribune, Sept. 4
