Attention all RVAH Navy/Reccenet supporters.

Hi everyone. I know many of you know about our two sites, www.rvahnavy.com and rvahnavy.ning.com (RecceNet). I originally developed the RVAHNAVY site (Joe Phillips redesigned the current version) and set up RVAHNAVY's Reccenet which is now maintained by Steven Ewing and Philip Tucker. I decided to go up to rvahnavy.com and take out some outdated links and data referring to the gear locker, reunions and other things that are very confusing. I will continue to fix up the site and eventually all pertanent links will point to RecceNet. (Ning site).

The site has been up for 15 years and its been 10 years since Joe Phillips did his great redesign so it needs some TLC. Hopefully all the bad links will point to good and current data and the site will be better for all of us.

Thanks to Robert Wagner, Rue (Jr) West, Steve Ewing, Phil Tucker, Mads Bangsø, Alvis Didway and our Current Newsletter Author Touche for all you do! Thanks to all of you who contributed and still send money to keep it all alive. The RVAH community will live on until we are all gone.

Response to this year's fund drive has been good and we now have some breathing room. Please remember that the association charges no dues so we depend on voluntary donations to pay the bills.
