April 28 – 29, 2008 • Mövenpick Hotel Bur Dubai, Dubai, UAE

Offshore Patrol Vessels – Multi-role, Cost-Effective Naval Solutions for 21st Century Operations

Smaller vessels are being proposed as the best way for navies to face ever-tightening budgets. There is now a huge range of options available within the small warships market. Is the best option to include as much technology and weaponry available as you can? What about the vast array of propulsion choices available? Is it best to opt for maximum capability or will refits and more economical vessels prove to be the better option?

*** From Alix Anne Hornig:

Hoping you can help us get the word out about the 2008 SemperComm Award

program as we'd love to receive several more entries before judging

begins in March. Thanks very much! **Anyone can submit a nomination and

all entries are due by Friday, February 29, 2008.

The SemperComm Award is given each year to nominated active-duty

military personnel who go above and beyond the call of duty to help

motivate, entertain and otherwise lift the spirits of their fellow

service members.

The SemperComm Foundation works to boost morale of our men and women

deployed to remote locations around the world, but we recognize that

there are a significant number of overseas remote bases that we can not

reach right away. While we hope to eventually reach out to all isolated

bases, the SemperComm Award is designed to recognize and honor service

members who are making personal contributions to boost the morale of

fellow men and women.

Service personnel from each military branch, including the Coast Guard,

combatant command and field commands can be nominated for this award.

SemperComm will choose up to three awardees to be honored at our annual

Gala, set for May 22, 2008. Winners will be determined based on three

criteria: actions taken to boost the morale of fellow service members,

the remoteness of the base where they are stationed, and their desire to

go above and beyond the call of duty.

Visit http://www.sempercommgala.org to learn more about our 2008

SemperComm Gala and to access an entry form for this year's SemperComm

Award.

Please include this message for consideration of your loyal legions:

The Naval Order of the United States is calling all hands on deck to honor the “Forgotten 1,068.”

The Naval Order is seeking the final funding for a monument to the 1,068 sailors who gave their lives on June 6, 1944 in the largest naval invasion ever. The operation comprised 1,213 Allied warships and more than 3,500 landing craft along a 50-mile wide target area of the beaches of Normandy, France. There currently is no monument or memorial honoring the Navy’s participation in the D-Day invasion.

The Naval Order hopes to raise $100,000 so that a bronze monument can be installed at Utah Beach. Tax deductible contributions can be sent to: Naval Order Foundation, P.O. Box 583, Glenview, IL 60025-0583. Personal checks should be marked with “Normandy” on the memo line. Corporate donations are welcome. Contributors of $25,000 or more will receive a 12” bronze replica of the monument.

For more information, go to www.normandymonument.org or contact Capt. Greg Streeter, USN (Retired), Chairman of the Navy D-Day Monument Project at (904) 221-0923 or gstreetr@bellsouth.net.
