The year is drawing to a close and the we are beginning to see a
light at the end of the COVID tunnel. I hope you are all remaining
safe and healthy and prepared for a joyous (if different) holiday
Just a few things.
1. I received two (2) more E-3 mask photos: Lou C and Mike
Dee along with his grand daughter, Molly (see below). I would
really like to get a pic of everyone wearing the mask, so please
take a minute, snap a shot and email/text to me. As the
president-elect might say....."C'mon, man!!!"
2. Reminder that our next Virtual Grant Hall is scheduled for
Sunday, 20 Dec 2020 beginning at 7:00PM EST. Details can be
found on the Virtual Grant Hall page. I will be sending out a
reminder a week in advance.
3. I participated in a web conference last evening at which time
Professor Led Klosky briefed class leaders, regimental and
company reps on the new USMA Cyber & Engineering Academic
Center (CEAC). As you know, our 50th Reunion Class Gift is
directed to the CEAC - both "brick and mortar" and endowment
pieces. The agenda for the meeting is here; and the slides Dr.
Klosky presented are here. The entire one (1) hour presentation
was recorded, and when I get the link for that video, I will post it.
4. In addition to the CEAC presentation, Bill Britain provided a
coarse update on the status of the Class Gift giving/pledges.
Simply stated, we (the class) are at 60% of the goal with
approximately 14 months remaining. 3rd Regiment lags behind
the other regiments (we are at 46% of our regimental goal); and E-3
is near the bottom of the regiment for meeting the company goal.
I promised you that I would not continually bug you about giving,
but I would be remiss of I did not once again urge you to consider
a generous gift. You can offer a one-time gift; allocate a direct
deposit monthly gift; or set up a planned gift/bequest. All options
are explained in ful on the USMA AOG web site. E-3 has never
been at the bottom of any list, so please consider giving.
