President’s Corner

Larry SalterFor those who missed our installation luncheon, you missed a good one.  In addition to thanking Tim Katona and the 2013 Board for their tireless efforts last year; we installed the 2014 Officers and Board; recognized some outstanding sailors from the USS Henry M. Jackson; and had a great presentation by Captain Michael Wettlaufer, CO of the USS John C. Stennis, on how things are going for the Stennis during her major overhaul at Puget Sound Naval Shipyard.

For those who tried to attend and could not get in the gate, I apologize.  Changing the venue from Bangor to Bremerton caused more problems than it should have.  Many lessons learned to implement if we use the Olympic Lodge venue again.  This month and for the foreseeable future, we will be at Bangor Plaza.

I hope you all took time to review the January issue of Seapower—the 2014 Almanac.  It has very good information on the mission, organization, leadership, and weapon systems of the sea services.  It is a great reference document that I keep on my desk year around.

I will miss the February luncheon due to work related travel, so I will see you in March.  Thank you for your support to Navy League and the men and women of the sea services.
