***  Offshore Patrol Vessels Middle East
April 28 – 29, 2008 . Venue to be confirmed, Dubai, UAE

Offshore Patrol Vessels – Multi-role, Cost-Effective Naval Solutions for
21st Century Operations

Smaller vessels are being proposed as the best way for navies to face
ever-tightening budgets. There is now a huge range of options available
within the small warships market. Is the best option to include as much
technology and weaponry available as you can? What about the vast array
of propulsion choices available? Is it best to opt for maximum
capability or will refits and more economical vessels prove to be the
better option?

***  From Alix Anne Hornig:

Hoping you can help us get the word out about the 2008 SemperComm Award
program as we'd love to receive several more entries before judging
begins in March.  Thanks very much! **Anyone can submit a nomination and
all entries are due by Friday, February 29, 2008.

The SemperComm Award is given each year to nominated active-duty
military personnel who go above and beyond the call of duty to help
motivate, entertain and otherwise lift the spirits of their fellow
service members.

The SemperComm Foundation works to boost morale of our men and women
deployed to remote locations around the world, but we recognize that
there are a significant number of overseas remote bases that we can not
reach right away.  While we hope to eventually reach out to all isolated
bases, the SemperComm Award is designed to recognize and honor service
members who are making personal contributions to boost the morale of
fellow men and women.

Service personnel from each military branch, including the Coast Guard,
combatant command and field commands can be nominated for this award. 

SemperComm will choose up to three awardees to be honored at our annual
Gala, set for May 22, 2008.  Winners will be determined based on three
criteria: actions taken to boost the morale of fellow service members,
the remoteness of the base where they are stationed, and their desire to
go above and beyond the call of duty.

Visit http://www.sempercommgala.org to learn more about our 2008
SemperComm Gala and to access an entry form for this year's SemperComm
Award.

than 3,500 landing craft along a 50-mile wide target area of the beaches
of Normandy, France.  There currently is no monument or memorial
honoring the Navy's participation in the D-Day invasion.

The Naval Order hopes to raise $100,000 so that a bronze monument can be
installed at Utah Beach.  Tax deductible contributions can be sent to:
Naval Order Foundation, P.O. Box 583, Glenview, IL 60025-0583.  Personal
checks should be marked with “Normandy” on the memo line.  Corporate
donations are welcome.   Contributors of $25,000 or more will receive a
12″ bronze replica of the monument. 

For more information, go to www.normandymonument.org or contact Capt.
Greg Streeter, USN (Retired), Chairman of the Navy D-Day Monument
Project at (904) 221-0923 or gstreetr@bellsouth.net.
