"Any man who may be asked in this century what he did to make his life worthwhile ... can respond with a good deal of pride and satisfaction, 'I served in the United States Navy'."

-- President John F. Kennedy
1963, Annapolis, MD

No thanks to you, Mr. Kennedy, for leaving my SEAL brother, A. Dee Clark, on some ungodly mountain in CUBA as a Forward Air Observer to direct the airstrike agains Fidel Castro's troops.

The Fraternal Order of the UWSS Key West FL is open for membership to all its students, staff, and those who are recommended by a voting member to become an associate member. We meet every two years at a different USA site. First reunion set up by "Pappy" Hewitt ( who has disappeared from our planet ) & MCPO Driscoll at Key West FL . The Second reunion was at Panama Beach FL. A. Dee Clark, our secretary - treasurer is awaiting your suggestions for the third reunion in 2002.
