SCUTTLEBUTT MONTHLY NEWSLETTER OF THE HIRAM I. BEARSS MARINE CORPS LEAGUE –DET #089 Indianapolis, Indiana EDITOR: GARY D. NASBY

From the Helm

 

Gary Nasby- Commandant Hiram I. Bearss Det. #089

       

A couple of things or ideas that need to get re-energized this month are: 1– The Plank Program: (this issue Page 10) “PLANK OWNERS of Marine Barracks Indy” Be Part of Making a Home for Marines and Family Members to Gather. Be Part of Preserving our Heritage and Traditions. Having the title of “Plank Owner” includes certain rights and privileges—including bragging rights of being part of the beginning of a new adventure for Marines in Indiana. GOAL– Payoff the building loan, and make improvements to the property. *** You can make installment payments to reach the level you want*** 2– HIB Car Donation ProgramAre you thinking of selling or trading in that old car, boat or RV? Why not donate your car to us instead? As a charitable contribution your car donation could make a big difference to us, AND GIVES YOU A TAX DEDUCTION. Information can be found here: http://indymarines.org/pages/cardonation.htm We just received a sizeable check for a donated car from HIB member Lance Long. Thanks Lance! 3– Our Staples ink Rewards Program. Bring your old ink and toner cartridges to the Detachment office and we will recycle them to buy needed office supplies. 4– Starting an HIB Color Guard: We have the M-1 rifles and now we need the people to volunteer to become a member of this unit. If interested contact John Lund, Jesus Quintana, or myself.

On 2-25-2013, HIB member Loren Minnix received the “Citation for Meritorious Service of the National Veterans Affairs and Rehabilitation Commission” in recognition of dedicated service in visiting hospitalized veterans, at the American Legion National Convention in Washington, DC. Great honor Loren, you deserve it.

I am available at for your comments and discussion: Phone- (317) 855-8798 E-Mail– hibcommandant@indymarines.org

Semper Fidelis- Gary D. Nasby
