Subject: Derry Alumni: June 2006 News Bulletin


Greetings Fellow Members of the U.S. NAVCOMMSTA Londonderry Alumni Association:

I'd like to re-institute the monthly "News Bulletins" which were previously sent out at the beginning of each month to our Membership (those with e-mail addresses.) This is the initial one, and you can look for a similar one at the beginning of each month which will document the changes made to the website during the previous month.

I'll start with a reminder about E-MAIL ADDRESSES:

Please keep the Alumni Association informed of any changes in your e-mail address, or your postal mailing address. We can't keep you informed, if we can't find you!


If you've read all the e-mails I've sent in the past two-weeks, or you have recently visited the Alumni Association web site, then you know about the many changes made in the past week, so I won't go into them in this News Bulletin.

But, I will tell you what this coming weekend's web site update will contain -- but, don't look for this update until Sunday, June 4th.

(1) A new section, News Bulletins, will be added to the web site for those members who DO NOT have access to e-mail.  It will contain all of the Year 2006 "All Hands" messages which have been sent out via E-mail to Alumni Association members with valid E-mail addresses on file with the association. After all, we do want to keep non-email members in the information loop, as well.  Think you might have missed an important message? Take a look in this new section!

(2) An exhaustive verification process of all member e-mail addresses listed in the Members List section of the website indicated there were an additional 61 invalid e-mail addresses listed. Again, do let us know when you change or drop your e-mail provider!  The verification process also indicated there were 31 e-mail address coding errors within our Member Listing. These 31 coding errors were corrected and the members whose names will be listed under corrections need take no further action. Finally, 20 members had their e-mail addresses updated to new addresses (thanks for keeping us informed!)  Bottom line, if you've tried e-mailing members in the past and received errors, do try again after this weekend's update.


The following 3 Alumni joined the Association during the past year, but I do not have contact information for them. If you have been in contact with any of these three Alumni and you have their e-mail addresses, please send them on to me.

The three are: Joseph 'Jody' Wells, Ralph Tucker, and Delmain Taylor.

That's all for now. My next News Bulletin, to be issued next week, will contain the latest information on our "Reunion 2007 in Derry" plans, so keep an eye out for it.

All the best,
Jim "Sully" Sullivan, (RM, 64-65)
Vice President, U.S. NAVCOMMSTA Londonderry Alumni Association
