*** Greater Washington Chapter Surface Navy Association Wounded Warrior

Project

For the past two years, the Greater Washington Chapter of the Surface

Navy Association has conducted a campaign to assist our wounded

shipmates recovering at the National Naval Medical Center in Bethesda,

MD. We collected more than 800 DVDs for the Sailors and marines to

enjoy during their recuperation. The following year we collected funds

and donated 155 portable DVD players.

This year we want to do something very meaningful for those of our

shipmates limited in their ability to get out and around the Washington

area during their convalescence. We have determined that Operation

Second Chance provides many valuable services to military men and women,

and would greatly benefit from a conversion van equipped too transport

wheelchair patients in and around the D.C. area to attend sporting

events, concerts, and other wise get out and about.

This is an expensive proposition, but very important for those men and

women who are virtually stuck in the hospital. We have carefully looked

at Operation Second Chance and are very impressed with the organization

and the services it provides.

Therefore, SNA GWC is seeking to help OSC raise $30,000 to purchase a

conversion van modified by Adaptive Mobility Systems, Inc. (AMS Vans).

Please indicate your contribution at the SNA website:

https://www.navysna.org/Events/OperationSecondChance.asp

This will take you directly to the OSC website fundraising page for

donations. (When prompted “How did your hear about OSC?” click on

Surface Navy Association.) Your donation will be made directly to OSC,

but we want to track our progress so we can follow our progress to

attaining our $30,000 goal.

Our goal is to help OSC raise the $30,000 by December 15th. If we

exceed the $30,000, the additional funds will be available to OSC for

insurance, registration, maintenance and operating costs for the van.

Please be generous, and share this appeal with others who share your

concern for those shipmates who had made a very great sacrifice in

service to their nation and security and freedom everywhere.

*** Great effort! Thanks for bringing everyone's attention to it.

On a related note, LMI, a not-for-profit government consulting firm based in McLean, VA, where I am the Director of Communications, has launched a Wounded Warrior Career Opportunities recruiting effort. It's the feature on our web site, with link to the sub-page about the effort (I'm attaching that link), including a link to the brochure we've done with additional details and a link to open positions. http://www.lmi.org/Careers/WoundedWarrior.aspx

We are working with the Services to get the word out. Perhaps you could include this in your newsletter, as well. We want to provide opportunities to those who have sacrificed for our nation.

Many thanks.

*** I received a lot of feedback on my “Linseed Oil” 9/11 tribute to Micheal Noeth.

Read it here:

http://www.new.facebook.com/inbox/readmessage.php?t=1006363358850&mbox_pos=0

*** From Donna Foley:

Dear Ned,

Thanks for sharing your story — the story of Michael Noeth. I didn't

“enjoy” reading it, because it was bittersweet, but I appreciated it. (Some

day I'm going to figure out a word to use for “enjoy” when that word just

isn't really appropriate. Do you have any suggestion? 🙂

No doubt you already know this, but scientists have discovered that our

sense of smell is absolutely our most powerful sense in terms of the effect

it has on us (even for those people who don't have what we call “a good

sense of smell”). For instance, apparently we choose our mates, ultimately,

based on their smell. We can see someone, find them extremely attractive to

look at, but once we are up close and personal, if they don't smell good to

us (and most people aren't even aware of this going on) we are no longer

going to find them attractive.

When I cleaned out my Dad's house after his death, it was the smell of his

belongings that brought him back to me, vividly, rather than photos or

mementos.

In my teens, I lived with a Moslem family in Jakarta, Indonesia,(through the

American Field Service program) as if I was their own daughter. Indonesians

make and wear batik clothing. Their batik is the most beautiful and

intricate of all the varieties made by many different cultures. Also, the

cloth has a distinctive (pleasant) smell to it. To this day, (I'm 48 now),

if I smell batik, I am instantly transported back to Jakarta, to the house I

lived in, to the bedroom I shared with my Indonesian sister. It is an

incredibly powerful experience.

I share this with you to let you know that I can understand your reaction to

the smell of linseed oil. A sensitive nose, which you and I seem to share

(since you recognize the source of memories of Michael Noeth) can be both a

curse and a blessing. Certainly, if there is a bad odor around, it can be

much more difficult for us than for others who hardly notice. Still, I'm

comforted by the thought that I'll never sleep through my house being on

fire! But the power our sense of smell has to evoke brilliant memories —

of both people and places — is certainly a blessing. I'm sure that Michael

is pleased that when you smell linseed oil, you think of him.

Thanks for ALL that you share with JOTW and DEFCON members.

With a heartfelt, personal tribute to those whose lives were lost on 9/11,

and prayers for their families, I am,

Yours truly,

Donna Foley

*** From Christy Balisle:

Hi Ned,

Thanks for your email. Like you said, we all have memories of that day –

and I do appreciate you sharing yours.

Regards,

Christy Balisle

*** From Mark Sofman:

Thank you, Ned, for a touching and heartfelt memoriam to Michael Noeth.

I'm certain I speak for many others who wish to say to you and to all the men and women in our Armed Forces who have served and especially those now serving:

Thank you for your service to our country!

*** From Scott Staron:
