Thursday, September 18, 2008

For the past two years, the Greater Washington Chapter of the Surface Navy Association (SNA) has conducted a campaign to assist our wounded  shipmates recovering at the in   More than 800 DVDs for the Sailors and marines were collected to enjoy during their recuperation.  The following year SNA collected funds and donated 155 portable DVD players.

This year the organization want to do something meaningful for those of our  shipmates limited in their ability to get out and around the Washington  area during their convalescence.  The organization determined that Operation Second Chance provides many valuable services to military men and women,  and would greatly benefit from a conversion van equipped to transport  wheelchair patients in and around the D.C. area to attend sporting  events, concerts, and other wise get out and about. 

SNA GWC is seeking to help OSC raise $30,000 to purchase a conversion van modified by Adaptive Mobility Systems, Inc. (AMS Vans). 

Please indicate your contribution at the SNA website:

The goal is to help OSC raise the $30,000 by December 15th.  If  the organization exceeds the $30,000, the addition funds will be available to OSC for  insurance, registration, maintenance and operating costs for the van.
