Keep the Fleet To Keep The Peace

Shipmates and family members, Welcome! I am much honored, and it gives me great pleasure being your NCUSA NATIONAL COMMANDANT for the 2017- 2018 cruise.

I’m very proud of this organization since it was established on June 18, 1938 in Quincy, IL.   For those who were in attendance for the 2017 NCUSA National Convention in Gettysburg, PA fun was had by all. A special thank you goes out to Chairperson PA Squadron Commander Charles Mills Ship #589 and Shipswriter Shirley Dawson for making this event a special occasion.

As Commandant I want to emphasize to all NCUSA members and Auxiliary that communication is “A” priority to me. I want to know what’s going on. Let’s promote NCUSA to get the word out on retention and recruiting new members and their families via “Hit the Deck” brochures, word of mouth and social media.

Congratulations to the newly elected/appointed members to their new positions.  You can find their contact information on the STAFF LISTING.
