“The man who doesn't relax and hoot a few hoots voluntarily, now and then, is in great danger of hooting hoots and standing on his head for the edification of the pathologist and trained nurse, a little later on.”

~Elbert Hubbard

*** 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 $13,000. But I am told a major gift was received that put us more than half way to our 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.

(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 Harry Wiley:

Ned,

You can help our wounded military personnel recuperate. While Ned's been helping raise money for the needed van in Washington, other groups have been helping in other ways. In Kentucky, the Ashland Inc. Retirees Club, Ashland, Ky., has held two drives to obtain “gently used or new” DVDs and VHS movies that are then shipped to the Wounded Warrior Battalion at Fort Knox. More than 1,000 movies have been shipped from the Ashland, Ky, area. You can do this, too. Check with a military hospital in your area and see if the Wounded Warrior program needs help — just a movie to make a day go by faster can make a difference!

*** From Charles B. Henderson:

Ned,

Several people have shared the following poem with me, and I thought I'd pass it along. This is for all the warriors among us, wounded or not.

Also, I have a confession to make, for what it's worth. When I had my physical for the military, back in the early '70s, the Vietnam war was still going on, although it would soon wind down. A hernia I had had since I was a young boy meant I was rated 4-F that day. A week later I turned around and had it fixed. I still recall, however, that some 50 percent of the young guys with me that day were turned down for physical reasons — not exactly a positive commentary on the physical state of youth at the time. Nevertheless, I'm proud to recognize the dedication and professionalism of the men and women who choose to don the uniform and take on the awesome responsibilities of military service. It rankles me when I hear some people say that some young people go into the military because of limited economic opportunities. While it may be true for some, theirs is a deliberate choice and, based on statistics, the people in the military are, on average, more educated than the general populace.

Best wishes for the holidays,

Charlie

Charles B. Henderson

St. Louis, Mo.

The embers glowed softly, and in their dim light,

I gazed round the room and I cherished the sight.

My wife was asleep, her head on my chest,

My daughter beside me, angelic in rest.

Outside the snow fell, a blanket of white,

Transforming the yard to a winter delight.

The sparkling lights in the tree I believe,

Completed the magic that was Christmas Eve.

My eyelids were heavy, my breathing was deep,

Secure and surrounded by love I would sleep.

In perfect contentment, or so it would seem,

So I slumbered, perhaps I started to dream.

The sound wasn't loud, and it wasn't too near,

But I opened my eyes when it tickled my ear.

Perhaps just a cough, I didn't quite know, Then the

sure sound of footsteps outside in the snow.

My soul gave a tremble, I struggled to hear,

And I crept to the door just to see who was near.

Standing out in the cold and the dark of the night,

A lone figure stood, his face weary and tight.

A soldier, I puzzled, some twenty years old,

Perhaps a Marine, huddled here in the cold.

Alone in the dark, he looked up and smiled,

Standing watch over me, and my wife and my child.

“What are you doing?” I asked without fear,

“Come in this moment, it's freezing out here!

Put down your pack, brush the snow from your sleeve,

You should be at home on a cold Christmas Eve!”

For barely a moment I saw his eyes shift,

Away from the cold and the snow blown in drifts.

To the window that danced with a warm fire's light

Then he sighed and he said “Its really all right,

I'm out here by choice. I'm here every night.”

“It's my duty to stand at the front of the line,

That separates you from the darkest of times.

No one had to ask or beg or implore me,

I'm proud to stand here like my fathers before me.

My Gramps died at ' Pearl on a day in December,”

Then he sighed, “That's a Christmas 'Gram always remembers.”

My dad stood his watch in the jungles of ' Nam ',

And now it is my turn and so, here I am.

I've not seen my own son in more than a while,

But my wife sends me pictures, he's sure got her smile.

Then he bent and he carefully pulled from his bag,

The red, white, and blue… an American flag.

I can live through the cold and the being alone,

Away from my family, my house and my home.

I can stand at my post through the rain and the sleet,

I can sleep in a foxhole with little to eat.

I can carry the weight of killing another,

Or lay down my life with my sister and brother…

Who stand at the front against any and all,

To ensure for all time that this flag will not fall.”

“So go back inside,” he said, “harbor no fright,

Your family is waiting and I'll be all right.”

“But isn't there something I can do, at the least,

“Give you money,” I asked, “or prepare you a feast?

It seems all too little for all that you've done,

For being away from your wife and your son.”

Then his eye welled a tear that held no regret,

“Just tell us you love us, and never forget.

To fight for our rights back at home while we're gone,

To stand your own watch, no matter how long.

For when we come home, either standing or dead,

To know you remember we fought and we bled.

Is payment enough, and with that we will trust,

That we mattered to you as you mattered to us.”
