ANAers – There’s a whole lot happening – regardless of what part of the ‘community” youconsider….maritime patrol, helos, go-fasters, ships and, GOD BLESS THEM, Aviation Bos’nMates – somewhere in the mix of defense reviews and budget submissions, etc, you’ll findthem. Now is the time to read up, to truly find out what is happening – and where needed tocontact your leadership AND legislators and tell them what they need to do – what they need tosupport – to keep Naval Aviation at the sharpest point of the spear – that force for victory and peace.Our informal survey about adding a web-based capability for membership renewals andfinancial gift giving was overwhelmingly for adding that to our web site at
http://www.anahq.org/ .
We will get that done ASAP.Another survey, done outside these pages, indicates that the frequwency of BULLHORNS isabout what membership wants. It also showed that the hyperlink feature that gives point andclick navigation from the INDEX listing is useful; we will continue that.
MEMBERSHIP, MEMBERSHIP!!!Best regards and VR,Dutch
