Apparently the Armed Guard / Merchant Marine Veterans Association chapter in Fellsmere, Florida, will take over the leadership of the organization and the responsibility for publishing The Pointer. This is good news for those of you who are members of the U.S.N. Armed Guard World War II Veterans Association or receive The Pointer, and indeed for all Armed Guard veterans and their families. Presumably there will be more information to come. Stand by.
Just FYI, the U.S.N. Armed Guard World War II Veterans Association and the Armed Guard / Merchant Marine website are two separate entities. The Veterans Association does not own, operate or direct the website, although C.A. and I have always been in close contact with each other.
As an aside, I really wish people would not type in ALL CAPS. It is interpreted as the Internet equivalent of shouting, and moreover it is too difficult to read quickly and easily.
