*** 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.

For information about SNA, visit www.navysna.org.

For information about OSC, visit

http://www.operationsecondchance.org/About.htm.

(Some of you noted that Operation Second Chance had imposed a $50 minimum for credit card donations. I have since arranged to have that dropped to $20.)

*** From Nancy Rizer:

DEPARTMENT OF DEFENSE MEDIA CONSOLIDATION

Ms. MIKULSKI. Mr. President,

I wish today to recognize the Department of Defense for its successful, BRAC-directed consolidation of the Army, Navy, and Air Force media activities into the new Defense Media Activity on October 1, 2008. The Department of Defense has greatly enhanced the consolidation by including the Marine Corps component and the American Forces Information Service in the new Defense Media Activity. The consolidation will improve the effectiveness and efficiency with which the Department of Defense media operations provides critical news and information to our Armed Forces around the world. In the summer of 2011, the Defense Media Activity will locate its headquarters to a state-of-the-art facility at Fort Meade, MD.

The Defense Media Activity is staffed by about 1,700 dedicated military and civilian employees who work in 15

countries. I wish the Defense Media Activity continued success in their support of the men and women of our military services and their families.
