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

From the Helm…. Gary Nasby- Commandant Hiram I. Bearss Det. #089

The Foundation has closed on the new Marine Barracks Indy, and we have a signed lease for the Detachment to make this their new home. It is now time for all detachment members to step up and make this a place to be proud of, and a place where all Marines can feel at home. A dedicated few members are giving up much of their free time to make this building a showcase that all can be proud of, and I appreciate all of their efforts. But by my count less than 20 is the number of members that have come to answer my call for work parties. That calculates to 10% of our membership roll. I am told that that is the “Norm” for volunteer organizations, but we as Marines are not the “Norm”. Those of you that do have some time to volunteer, please do so as all skill levels are needed. Work parties will be held throughout this month, most everyday starting at 0900. Come and join us in making this a premiere Marine Corps League Detachment home. Call me if you have time to donate and need to know when you are needed. _______________________________________________

Please excuse the newsletter this month for lateness and lack of content. All my free time is being spent working at the new Barracks. Upcoming events are the Marine Corps Ball on Nov. 13th, (see page 11), Indy 1500 Gun show– Oct. 22-24, and the Veterans day Parade Downtown Nov. 11th. I am available at for your comments and discussion: Phone- (317) 855-8798 E-Mail– hibcommandant@indymarines.org Semper Fidelis, Gary D. Nasby
