*** Clearance:

Ned —

I occasionally see postings that include “eligibility to obtain a

'Secret' (or other) security clearance” as a qualification.

As I have never had nor needed a security clearance, I have no idea

whether I'd be eligible or what would be entailed. Is there a resource

you could direct me to that might give me a better idea of where I

stand? Thanks.

C.D.

(Good question. There are thousands upon thousands of people who have

them, so it isn't an insurmountable obstacle to employment. Let's ask

the network for a response. Ned)

*** Biggest game of the year!

Whether you went to West Point or Annapolis or not, the service rivalry

of the Army-Navy football game is intense. Whether either team is any

good or not makes no difference. This is the game the players play for.

Navy lost to Army several years in a row by a miniscule margin, usually

decided by a field goal, or a missed one anyway. Army recently set new

NCAA record for most losses on a single season. They have struggled to

beat anyone, although they did win some games this year. Army (3-8),

has defeated LSU, Tulane and Eastern Michigan. The Black Knights lost

to Rutgers 30-3, a team Navy beat. Army also lost to Air Force, another

team Navy has beat That means no matter what happens next Saturday,

Navy will keep the Commander-in-Chief's Trophy at Annapolis, where it's

been for the past few years. Navy's 7-4 record includes losses to Pitt,

Notre Dame and undefeated Ball State. The fact that Navy is going to

the inaugural Eagle Bank Bowl game this year means nothing. It all

comes down to Army-Navy. , Saturday, Dec. 6.

One should have enormous respect for both teams, knowing none of these

student-athletes are playing for the NFL scouts. For the seniors on

both teams, their football playing days end with this game. It all

comes to this. Then, they are go on to receive commissions as officers

in the military, and serve their nation around the world in dangerous,

difficult and demanding assignments. You cannot watch this game without

choosing a team to root for. As a 24-year veteran of the U.S. Navy, I

have chosen.

In A Dawn Like Thunder: The True Story of Torpedo Squadron Eight, Robert

Mrazek tells the little-known story of a small group of men in an almost

forgotten torpedo squadron that, through a combination of courage,

loyalty and sacrifice, helped change the course of history at the epic

World War II battles of Midway and Guadalcanal. They became the most

highly decorated American naval air squadron of the Second World War.

These 35 men were typical young Americans who came from every part of

the country with the dream of serving in the United States Navy. They

went on to fly an outmoded aircraft-some pilots called it a “flying

coffin”-that launched unreliable torpedoes against enemy war ships. At

the pivotal Battle of Midway, the men of Torpedo Squadron Eight were

able to buy the battle time that allowed American forces to win a

transcendent victory in a battle they seemed almost certain to lose. At

Guadalcanal, this squadron's heroic exploits further helped to turn the

tide of the war against Japan-at a tragically high price. In just three

months, Torpedo Eight suffered the highest combat losses of any naval

aviation squadron in American history, before or since. Writing with

stunning immediacy about these ordinary men who took up an extraordinary

challenge, Mrazek exposes a shocking military cover up that cost many

lives. Whether these men were used as decoys or bait is arguable, but

their stories must be kept alive.

Related video can be found on NAVY TV online, including John Ford's

Academy Award-winning 1942 documentary “The Battle of Midway”

(http://www.navytv.org/channel.cfm?c=51) and the video he produced

specifically about Torpedo Squadron Eight

(http://www.navytv.org/channel.cfm?s=52&c=151).

Robert Mrazek is a five-term Congressman and the author of three novels,

including the award-winning Stonewall's Gold. He lives in upstate New

York and Maine

*** 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 current total is about $11,000.

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.
