OUR NEXT Distinguished Speaker Program THURSDAY 29 APRIL 2010 R. V. BURGIN WWII Marine Corps Veteran and author of Island of the Damned World War II took R.V. Burgin from the cotton fields of Jewett to some of the most horrific fighting of the Pacific Theater, none worse than on the hellish little coral island of Peleliu. There, Burgin and his fellow Marines battled their way into history books, including his own just-released autobiography, Islands Of The Damned, published by Burgin was the platoon sergeant to Eugene Sledge who authored the WWII classic, With the Old Breed. A decorated combat veteran of the epic U.S. Marine campaigns on New Britain, Peleliu, and Okinawa. Burgin (along with Sledge) will be portrayed in the Steven Spielberg-Tom Hanks miniseries, HBO s The Pacific. Now 87 and living in Lancaster, near Dallas, Burgin says he s very happy about the miniseries, because you could stop 100 people on the street and ask them about Peleliu, and I bet there wouldn t be one or two who d even hear of Peleliu, much less known there was a battle fought there. Over the course of 10 episodes, The Pacific may be able to educate a new genera- Continued on page 2 DISTINGUISHED SPEAKER PROGRAM Austin Woman s Club, Chateau Bellevue 8th and San Antonio (Parking entrance on Nueces between 7th & 8th Streets) Social 1815 Dinner 1915 Program 2015 Members & their Guests- $30* Military in Uniform & their Guests - $20 Cadets & Midshipmen and their Guests - $15 Reservations:

2 President s Message Those of you who have been watching the Spielberg/ Hanks WW2 HBO series The Pacific will surely be interested in our next Distinguished Speaker event, and those who have not yet seen any of the series will be in for a treat. R. V. Burgin, who was a Marine platoon sergeant in the 1st Marine Division in the battles on New Britain, Peleliu, and Okinawa, has written a book Islands of the Damned Randy Patterson President, Greater Austin Council about those days of incredibly difficult and costly fighting. He will comment on his experiences and have books available for signing. See the accompanying announcement and make your reservations TODAY. We are expecting a good turnout for this meeting. I have attended and presented Navy League awards at a few of the award ceremonies at some of the eleven high school Navy and/or Marine Corps Junior ROTC units that our Council supports, as well as the William B. Travis unit of the Navy Sea Cadets. As in the past, I was impressed by the high caliber and enthusiasm of these young folks, and the high standards of their instructors. We sometimes focus on the current problems of the sea services, (and this is appropriate in these turbulent times) to the exclusion of the future sailors, marines and Coast Guard men and women that will be the backbone of the Navy, Marine Corps, and Coast Guard long after many of us are gone. Support of these units, which produce significant inputs to our service academies and the increasingly technical enlisted ranks is one of the Navy League s most important activities. I encourage all of you to welcome and talk with these young cadets and midshipmen that attend our dinner meetings, and then to support and follow these ROTC units at your local high school. We lost long time Navy Leaguer Dr. J. Christopher Reynolds who passed away suddently on February 5, Our condolences to his family. Many thanks to Richard Coffey and Great American Financial Resources for their annual donation of $200 to the George Jones Scholarship fund. Finally, we are still in need of a Council Vice President for Education, who oversees and coordinates programs, program logistics, and the Council speakers bureau. This is an excellent and interesting way to be more active in the Greater Austin Council, and provide rewarding input to the mission of our Council. Please contact me ( ) or Max Miller ( ) if you are interested in this position. Randy R. V. Burgin, Continued from page 1 tions of Americans about the horrors of World War II in the same way that its 2001 predecessor, Band of Brothers, chronicled the European front. There s no way that I can express my feelings, says the retired postal worker. He remains as reed-thin as he was during his Marine Corps days, with a mind and wit as sharp as a bayonet according to Michael Granberry of the Dallas Morning News, who interviewed Burgin for an article that was reprinted in the Austin American-Statesman, Thursday, April 8, F R E E NAVY LEAGUE MEMBERSHIPS Here is a short-term offer to assist you as a Navy League member in sponsoring a new member.

3 Max Miller NLUS National Director and Chairman of the Board Greater Austin Council Legislative Affairs Report The Lone Star Region Legislative Affairs Team consisting of Jeanie Coffey, Max Miller, and Jack Ritter were busy recently contacting Members of Congress (MOCs) and making standard Navy League presentations to them. Coffey contacted the congressional office staff and worked very hard to set up appointments that took place March 29 to April 9, 2010 when Congress was not in session. Ritter and Miller spent three days in the Dallas-Fort Worth area where they were joined by local Navy Leaguers to make the presentations. The goal was to have a member of the local NL Council assigned to each MOC to provide continuity with Congressional offices and staff that are spread out over the expansive Dallas-Fort Worth area. The Lone Star Region Team visited six Congressional offices where they talked to the legislative assistants. They also made three presentations to Members of Congress: Kay Granger, Pete Sessions, and Eddie Bernice Johnson. An additional appointment was made by Max Miller for a Fort Worth Navy League member to make a presentation to his local congressman. In each case we tried to have a constituent go with us to visit the MOC. This strategy of making presentations with a local NL person and a constituent allowed us to train Navy Leaguers new to the Legislative Affairs Grassroots Program. The presentations stressed the need for support of funding the 313-ship Navy and increased funding for the Coast Guard Deepwater shipbuilding program. The need for increased operating funds for the Coast Guard versus a decrease as currently proposed for FY 2011 was also emphasized.

The participating midshipmen were treated to briefs and asked questions of several Navy and Marine Corps leaders. The first lecture was by CDR Mark A. Becker, USN, deputy chair for the Warfare Analysis and Research Department of the United States Naval War College s Center for Naval Warfare Studies and a graduate of the University of Texas. It was followed by a lecture from CDR Kristy Doyle, USN, Commanding Officer of the PCU FREEDOM BLUE crew about the future of the U.S. Navy and the Littoral Combat Ship. First Sgt. William Bodette held the audience s attention with stories and examples of leadership exploits of officers he has served under and how the enlisted man views the officer. UT MIDN Erick Zuber (seated) shares a meal with new friends. The highlight of the final evening was dinner with Lieutenant General Joseph F. Dunford, Jr., Commanding General of the First Marine Expeditionary Force and Marine Corps Forces Central Command, who gave a speech about the current state of the Marine Corps and the direction it is headed. The midshipmen came away from the Notre Dame Naval Leadership Weekend feeling better able to lead men and women and handle what the future has in store for them. 6 The Anchor, March April

7 *Please Note* Due to an increase in meeting expenses, the cost of meals had to be raised to $30 for members and their guests. The increase also helps to offset the cost of meals for uniformed military, cadets and midshipmen. Thank you for understanding. CSOP uses grassroots approach to spreading the word about Navy League The Navy League US has kicked off a grassroots public education initiative workshop series called Community Service Orientation Presentation (CSOP.) According to Daniel Branch, President of NLUS, This program is aimed at reaching members of service organizations in communities such as Rotary, Lions, and Kiwanis, among many others. We now have a new presentation aimed at this audience that introduces the Navy League, and describes a key issue from our Maritime Policy, the decline in size of the Navy s fleet. Modeled after Grass Roots Presentation One for Members of Congress, the new Community Service Organization Presentation (CSOP) specifically asks members of service organizations to consider contacting their Member of Congress about the decline in fleet size. At the same time, the presentation provides the opportunity to ask those listening to the presentation to consider joining the Navy League. We may also be able to establish partnering opportunities with other organizations as a result of the program. The program replicates the highly successful Legislative Affairs presentations on a local level. Initial training for Council officers and other interested individuals is taking place in April (8th and 22nd) via telephone. The sessions take approximately 45 minutes including questions and answers. Future training sessions have not yet been scheduled. The actual presentations are available as a Word Document or PowerPoint Presentation. If you are interested in learning more about this unique approach to informing the public about the importance of supporting our sea services and possibly recruiting more members to Navy League, please let Greater Austin Council President Randy Patterson, or any Council officer know and you will be apprised of the next scheduled training opportunities.
