      Members and Friends,
      Another fine issue of SEAPOWER has hit the Internet. In a few more days it will be in your mailbox.
      Of special note is mention of our council and its intended support for the Arkansas Division Sea Cadets on pages 66 and 67..
      For more information on the Division see post http://groups.yahoo.com/group/PMMC-NLUS/message/448.
      The Division's Commanding Officer, Captain Tim Cogan, has accepted our invitation to be our guest speaker at our Monday, September 21 luncheon onboard the S.S. JEREMIAH O'BRIEN. His topic will focus on the Military Sealift Command vessels plying San Francisco Bay. When he is not working for the Maritime Administration as a Marine Engineering Inspector he has likely taken command of one of the MSC ships berthed near the U.S.S. HORNET in Alameda. He will also give us his perspective on his Sea Cadets unit. It is a luncheon you don't want to miss; start inviting friends now. $20 pp or free with a new Navy League membership, http://www.navyleague.org/membership/individual_membership.php , and affiliation with our council. We will be extending the offer to existing Navy League members who choose to affiliate with our council.
      Keep in touch,
      Phelps Hobart, President
      Pacific Merchant Marine Council, NLUS
