Re: Enlisted USS James Madison license plate frame - free

All: I ordered an officer's USS James Madison license plate frame, but they sent an enlisted one instead. Fortunately for me, they replaced it free. Fortunately for you, all they asked was for me to pass on the incorrect frame to someone else who would like to have it. This seemed like the best pla...

Re: Enough, guys! Who's here?

Re: Commanding Officers?

My father is Lawrence E Miller. I am sure he would be happy to pass along his years of service on the Madison and fill in any blanks that he is aware of. His email is Lemillerla@aol.com. I am sure he would like to help if you contact him. Rachel Miller Ok Ms. Miller (and everyone else), a little la...

Re: So what's stopping you?

Yeah, definitely location. I will be hard pressed to attend when held in one the cities/areas nominated for 2017. What were they again?

Re: Happy Thanksgiving

I trust everyone had a calm, uneventful Thanksgiving. Myra and I did our usual: the week was spent in North Myrtle Beach for golf, visiting friends and beer. It was a very nice get-away, yet again.
