A new Editor has agreed to step forward and publish a detachment newsletter starting this month (May 2019) Marine CHarles Tate anyone interested in providing information for the next TVD Newsletter contact him at 

Details for submission to Newsletter Editor.

All detachment Officers are requested to submit articles about the subjects of their office.  As officers I encourage you to submit something pertaining to your responsibilities so that the membership is aware that you are doing something. It need only to be a paragraph but if you have more, great!

All submissions to the newsletter must be received before the third Saturday of the month. The delay is to include info from the Board of Trustees and Detachment meetings.  I try to publish the Sunday/Monday after the business meeting.  It must be typed or printed from a printer.  Hand delivered or e-mailed.  If it is a clipping from a newspaper I need the name of the paper, the date of the paper the article was published in, this is due to copyright laws.  Please document your submissions so they can be verified.

Members who attended events and took pictures please submit those pictures with details of the event, a story is not required, captions are sufficient.  Remember who, what, when, where, how and why can all be used to tell what happened.  Pictures should be in small file format.

For information or to submit articles to be published/reviewed for this Newsletter please contact:

“We signed up knowing the risk. Those innocent people in New York didn’t go to work thinking there was any kind of risk.”
