Dear Shipmates:

As we approach the holiday season, I wish to extend to all a Merry Christmas or Happy Holiday whichever you choose and hope that the new year brings health, happiness and comfort to all.

Please take this Thanksgiving to reflect on all the good things in your life.  Remember our service men and women that will be away from family and loved ones.

                                                                         For the Association
                                                                          Robert Franklin
