“Men
are apt to mistake the strength of their feeling for the strength of their
argument. The heated mind resents the chill touch and relentless scrutiny of
logic.”


-
William E. Gladstone

***  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.


 


23
– 25 January, 2012, Hyatt Regency, Paris, France

***  The Surface Navy
Association (SNA) Scholarship program is an annual activity that SNA is very
proud to offer to our members’ dependent children and spouses for undergraduate
and graduate education.  The academic achievements of our scholars are
impressive and our current year’s renewal GPA (for those asking for a second
through fourth year of support) was 3.64. 


 


An
SNA Scholar receives an academic scholarship based on demonstrated leadership,
community service, academic achievement and commitment to pursuing higher
educational objectives. Our criteria require that an applicant be a child,
stepchild, ward or spouse of a current SNA member who is a Surface Warfare
Officer or Enlisted Surface Warfare Specialist or Officers and Enlisted members
of the Coast Guard who’ve earned a permanent Cutterman’s pin, with three years
of sea time.


 


With
humble beginnings in 1995, with one scholarship for $500, we now award over
$120,000 per year to 60 total individuals.  In fact, since 2002 we have provided nearly three quarters of a
million dollars in scholarship support to our members and families. 


 


This
past year, SNA received over 50 applications and was able to award scholarships
to 17 of these outstanding new applicants. With your help, we can continue to
grow this exceptional program. SNA is currently accepting donations for the
scholarship fund online at:


 


https://www.navysna.org/SNA/ScholarshipCCDonation.asp


 


The Surface Navy Association greatly values any
donation and all donations are tax deductible as SNA is a 501(c) 3
organization. As an example of the financial clout we can have together, if
every member gave just $25, it would be enough to award over 20 fully-funded
new scholarships. This is an important way for us to invest in the futures of
the families of our nation’s Surface Warriors.
