Page 2 Visit our website: October 2018 Presidential Ponderings by Patty Parks, National President I cannot thank the convention committee enough for the enough time to take advantage of all the great things they had planned! Of exceptional note were the guest speakers they arranged who provided top notch, invaluable information personal health. On the business s ide, several organizational changes were made, the most significant of which is the elimination who have taken on these jobs in the past have done a wonderful job. However, we have never been able to fill all the positions, so with fewer members, elimination of that level seemed to be the most appropriate action. While a few bylaws were changed to keep us functioning for the next two years, membership approved a complete rewrite of the bylaws. Nex t year will mark 40 years since the bylaws were originally written and there has never been a complete rewrite, even with the significant changes in our organization. This rewrite, which is being worked on by all members of the Board of Directors will elim inate duplication as well as items which no longer apply to the organization. The result will be a smaller, more efficient document tailored to the future needs of MilWomen. I deeply appreciate all the members and their families who were able to attend t he convention. I realize many of you were unable to attend d ue to the travel distance. Hopefully, you will be able to join us at the 2020 National Convention which will be planned for the September time frame at Put In Bay, O H ; an island resort on Lake Erie. While the California gals set the bar VERY high, our sisters in Ohio are determined to top it! Finally, thank you for allowing me to serve you for another term. My goal in 2016 was to visit all units and determine what o ur membership expect from MilWomen. I missed my first goal by three units, but I have visits set with two of them and the final one will follow soon after. As for what our membership expects, the top expectation is camaraderie. Whether we call it sisterh ood, togetherness, friendship or fellowship, this was the most common expectation expressed. The next two expectations were a source of information and opportunities to serve our community as a group. I see these responses as a desire to be a part of something bigger than ourselves and to use those relationships for the betterment of our communities, states and nation. My commitment to you for the next two years is to grow and strengthen the base of MilWomen so we can meet your expectations. Of course, a s time permits I will continue to show up at unit meetings now and then watching and listening to you. Bylaw Briefing by Cathy Gerolimatos, Bylaw Chair As this edition of Military Women's Bulletin goes to print, I will have finished my fourth term as MWAN's Bylaws Chair. I recall when I was asked to accept this appointment, I thought: "How hard can this be?" Little did I know, that, as a result of the organization changing its name, I would be thrust so much deeper in to the world of Robert's Rules of Order Newly Revised (RONR). I've learned much from attending parliamentarian workshops and conferences and the counsel of subject matter experts. Can you believe RONR is over 600 pages of detailed policy? I can categorical ly state, "I know that now!" It has been a privilege and an honor to serve WAVES National and Military Women Across the Nation, and to have been able to meet and work with you the officers and members of this unique organization. It's been a heck of a ride and experience that wi ll always be with me. On that note, I want to take this opportunity to thank you for your trust and support. Always, your sister and shipmate. Vo lunteer Viewpoints by Diane Turcotte Culleton, National Representative for Veterans Administration Voluntary Service (VAVS) Hope everyone had a wonderful SUMMER! On receiving this Bulletin I would have attended the MWAN Convention in San Diego and will be preparing to attend VAVS Executive Board in Washington DC. It will be an honor for me to represent MWAN as one of 20 organizations on the Executive Board. Thank you to all representatives and deputies who have met with their Program Manager for their Annual Joint Review. If you have not met with your Mana ger, please schedule your appointment as soon as possible to fulfill this requirement. Congratulations to Sandra Jolly our new Representative at the West Palm Beach (FL) VA and to Deanna Allman as the new Representative along with Jane Boulton as the new Deputy Representative at the Nashville (TN) VA Medical Center. Thank you for volunteering to help our Veterans and representing MWAN. We still have not reached our goal of having Representatives in 25 facilities to remain a voting organization. I ant icipate a notification from the VAVS National office stating we will be losing our status as a VA Volunteers and represent MWAN at the Quarterly Committee Meetings. You can contact me at or call me at 207 474 2235. Nationa l Officer & Staff contact Info on Page 10.

Louise Manz had the honor of serving under Adm iral McCain, Sen ator McCain's father from 1 958 to 1960 while on active duty.

We attended a great annual patriotic concert with all branches of service be ing recognized. We also celebrated with a luncheon for Gladys Martin 's 96 th birthday and the WAVES 76 th birthday.

As 1800 rolled around, the ladies (and gentlemen), kept arriving. Tables filled up circulating freely. We soon found out. What would be a great surprise to the Unit, was a gifting of each member receiving a Quilt of Valor from the local chapter of Quilts of Valor, Not Forgotten QOV One by one, each member, (and th eir spouse in attendance), were recognized for their service with their own individual quilt. The presentation had been arranged, in secret, by members Betty Hand, unit President, and Kathy Goodall, unit member and QOV Volunteer. To quote the minutes fr ceremony were very moving, and very emotional for all as a Cold War era Veteran, and this was very special to her.

Valerie Annunziata USAF and CDR Kimberly Annunziata USN (ret). The Major is the 1 st female F 35A pilot and is stationed at Luke AFB. She has flown more than 500 c ombat hours in the Middle East and is now training as a flight instructor. The Commander, her mother, was a Supply Corps Officer. They recounted their experiences while in service and spoke warmly of their affection for each other and mutual respect. Bot h credited the women who came before them and helped make their service dreams a reality. (L R) Former U.S. Navy Commander, Kimberly Annunziata, Arizona Senator Jamescita Peshlekai, Air Force Major, Val e rie Annunziata. (The only female military pilot flying the F35A) They told stories of mentors, obstacles and achievements; a remarkable one of which is that the CDR was one of (if not THE) first women to attend college on a ROTC scholarship and that happened because the selection board thought she wa s a HE. She persisted, was given the opportunity and excelled heralding a policy change. Our members had so many questions and offerings of appreciation that the meeting ran over by nearly an hour.

Jan served the veteran community through several veteran organizations including the American Legion, Kent County (M I) United Veterans Council and the Fleet Reserve. She was a trailblazer for military women and it is veteran community. My Memory of Jan by Barb Turner I met Jan Roy while attending my first ever WAVES National (WN) Regional Conference in 1997 at Mobile A L Jan was the WN First Vice President and I had just been appointed as WN National Public Relations Chair by then WN President, Dorothy Budacki. I was president of Northwest Florida WAVES Unit 52 and had retired from the Navy in November the year before. During the business meeting portion of the conference, I was seated next to Jan on the dais. Before too long she looked me in the eye and said I understand you are a retired Navy officer Wow, really? Those who knew Jan either liked her, or not. It was as simple as that. She was a crusty, red headed, retired chief and very opinionated. When I finally got to tell her that I was indeed a retired Navy officer and that I was changed completely. From then on we roomed together at almost every midterm and convention, and I learned a lot about the organization from Jan. She was my mentor. She was my friend. I miss her.
