***  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.
