*** 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

(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.
