News from our Members:

Jim Bates - Several of us went to see Willie Almers at the former Cooper Hall assisted living home, now known as the Palms on Bowman Road in Mt Pleasant. He was for a number of years the senior civilian in the Supply Department. He was ninety one years old this past summer and his mind is clear and his memory flawless. It was a nice afternoon going over the fun we all had at POMFLANT.

Willie was gifted at getting equipment needed quickly for the program while meeting the arcane requirements of the supply system. He was instrumental in many of our successes, for which he was not adequately recognized!

He would enjoy seeing or hearing from any of his old friends. However, please let him know before you stop in. His phone number is 843-856-0888. Be prepared for an old fashion Charlestonian accent.

Ron and Nancy Thomas - Well as most of you know retirement is entirely too busy. I think I actually worked less when I was working. We have a new Grand Daughter, Ella Brooke Guido, born on 27 May. We stay busy doing a little bit of everything. We are in the process of remodeling our master bathroom. I am still working on my workshop. I am still building and fixing computers. The tasks never seem to end.

I joined the Nassau County Sheriff's Office as a Volunteer Deputy Sheriff in April this year.

We are going on another Bahamas cruise shortly and taking the kids along. And I seem always to be late on updating the Website and Newsletters.

Our side business, Southeastern Synthetics, will continue to sponsor the Alumni Association at no cost whatsoever to the members. This includes the web, newsletter, materials and any applicable postage costs
