FROM THE DESK OF THE TORTUGA LSD 26/46

ASSOCIATION PRESIDENT

Walter (Skip) Weiss, Jr.

Well, another reunion has come and gone and all had a good time and we had

a good turnout. At the banquet we had a guest speaker from the LST 335,

which was out on maneuvers. Also, this year’s reunion was dedicated to Mr.

Chuck Westbrook for all his great work and dedication to the Association and

work on our web site. A plaque was presented to his wife for all of his fine

work. Also two more plaques were given out. One to Lisa Rainey for her great

work on the Newsletter and the other was given to Cathy Baker for the great

work she did on the By-Laws. At this years reunion we have chosen the next

two reunion destinations. In 2012 we will be going to Atlanta, GA (September

12 – 16) and in 2013 it will be Portland, OR.

At this time with a heavy heart I have some sad news for all. Our well loved

member and Vice President, Duane Panter, passed away on September 24th as

reported by his son. He will be missed by all.

With the passing of Duane we will need a new Vice President. So, I am asking

for nominations or a volunteer to assume this position. Please sent me you

nomination or your name if you want to run. I will check with the person

nominated to see if they will accept the office. You can contact me via email at

calgrizzly@earthlink.net or snail mail at : Skip Weiss, 89 Capistrano Ave., San

Francisco, CA 94112.
