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

***  From Rick Spearman:

Ed, with all your outlets I can’t help wonder if you’re able to repost something like the note below. If you can’t, no worries, but it is for a good cause. All the best, Rick

 

 

Good stories start out with, “So there I was . . .”

So there I was . . . walking into the Pentagon one morning when this big Army NCO passed by me like a man on a mission. As he walked by, I saw the glint of titanium where pants and boots came together. Not in just one leg, but in both.

 

Being a naturally shy person, I stopped him and asked what happened to his legs. He explained he’d lost both his legs to a roadside bomb in Iraq. We talked a while longer about his work to recover and what he was doing now. I asked him the biggest difference he noticed between the legs the Good Lord had given him and the new ones, and he said, “Well Sir, I notice my feet don’t seem to get as cold.”

 

Nothing much to do after that but thank him for his service and watch in wonder has he walked away. I did have a passing thought, though, about how great it would be to give a little something back to a guy like that.

 

Shortly after that, I heard about the Face of America Bike Ride. Face of America is a 110-mile bike ride from Washington DC to Gettysburg, PA that provides the opportunity for able-bodied bike riders to spend time on the road with riders who have been wounded serving the country. This year’s ride is April 27-29, starting at the Pentagon and ending in the middle of Gettysburg Battlefield in Pennsylvania.

 

The ride, created by World T.E.A.M Sports in conjunction with the Walter Reed National Medical Center, gives participants a unique opportunity to honor America’s warfighters who have been wounded, as they set and achieve new goals. I got so much out of this experience last year that I want to make a yearly event out of participating with these great Americans and honoring their service and sacrifice.

 

This is where I ask you for your support. Last year, with the help of some very generous contributors, I was able to raise more than $3,500 for this great cause. Wounded veterans pay no fees to participate. The rest of us raise funds to support the event and pay all costs for the wounded warriors who ride. This year, I’m asking everyone I know to contribute to this effort by going to my website to make a contribution.

If you don’t have access to the Internet or prefer to send a check payable to “Face of America Bike Ride,” please send to this address:

 

Face of America Bike Ride 2012

Attn: Rick Spearman

7003 Ferguson Drive

Fredericksburg, VA 22407

 

This is really much more than a bike ride. It’s an opportunity to share stories and build camaraderie with America’s wounded warriors. It’s a way to honor their service and celebrate the American spirit. I’d appreciate your contributions to this worthy cause and am available to answer any questions you might have at either rickspearman1742@gmail.com or 540-287-3256.

 

Thanks very much, Rick

 

 

Since 1987, our organization has created and organized inspiring events worldwide, including the AXA World Ride, Vietnam Challenge, Sea to Shining Sea cross-country rides, Soldiers to the Summit wounded warrior events and expeditions, the Coastal TEAM Challenge, the annual TEAM Challenge in Colorado and several Face of America rides.

 

World T.E.A.M Sports is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization headquartered in Arlington, Virginia. Support comes primarily from individual and corporate donations and sponsorships.

***  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.
