*** Miles Wiley sends: The Washington Post reported that Colonel Marv Harris passed away on December 9, 2011, after a long illness. Donations can be given to the MOAA Scholarship Fund.

Ned's comment: Marv Harris was at the Air Force's Public Affairs office when I was working for the DoD news desk. He was a familiar face passing through the news desk area, always with a smile and never too self-important not to share something we needed to know. In retirement he ran the very successful Military Officer magazine, which I receive as a member of the Military Officers Association of America.

*** Surface Warships 2012

Exploring the Future of Global Surface Combatant Fleets In a highly uncertain strategic environment, the ability to use the majority of the world's surface, and reach most of its population makes maritime forces those of choice for the world's main actors and their allies – and surface warships are key components of such forces. Their need to police the oceans against the dual threats of terrorism and piracy make surface warship programmes a crucial and indispensable part of the future maritime environment.

Surface Warships will provide the ideal environment for industry and naval professional to discuss innovative future designs and the need to keep current vessels battle ready through capability upgrades and refits.
