Since 1938, NCUSA has in spite of its small size nationally, accomplished many programs and projects, which has kept it alive, and now building a larger membership. Perhaps the biggest highlight of all NCUSA's events took place in 1955. It was in this year, December 7th, to be more specific, that eight members of the parent body dedicated the first memorial by any Veterans Organization, in honor of all servicemen killed in the Pearl Harbor area in 1941. This monument was placed adjacent to the sunken battleship Arizona, on Ford Island, and consists of a large bronze plaque, measuring approximately three by five feet, and placed on a bluestone lava rock weighing 27 tons, standing ten feet tall. Insignificant, as it might appear, compared to other memorials since dedicated, it never the less took the eye and attention of Charles Thomas, then Secretary of the Navy, as he immediately asked the Pearl Harbor Commission members of NCUSA, to please help the Navy Department and the Pacific War Memorial Commission in establishing a permanent memorial over the sunken battleship Arizona.

I wanted to send out a little more communication for everyone to understand more changes we are implementing to hopefully make the Navy Club better and move us forward with growth during this cruise.
