CPOA & CPOAA OFFICERS
ELECTED FOR 1999

Congratulations to the following Chiefs for being elected as Officers of the Yorktown Chapter for 1999:

Officers BOD Members
President: Jeff Gruber Adrian Rymer
Vice Pres. Greg Smith Paul Simpson
Secretary: Pat Gallagher Austin Adcock
Treasurer: Tim Busch Leonard Rich

During a joint CPOA / CPOAA installation ceremony on January 7th, held at RTC’s Port of York, the new officers sworn in by Honorary President Captain Dennis Sande, Commanding Officer RTC Yorktown.

CPOAA Officers installed for the new year are:
President: Mrs. Audrey Wahlkamp
Vice Pres: Mrs. Carol Ferro
Secretary: Mrs. Kay Griffin
Treasurer: Mrs. Candy Freer

Closing remarks from President Gruber: It is a great honor to serve the Yorktown Chapter. I look forward to this year’s activities and the opportunity to celebrate in   our Chapter’s 30th anniversary. I would like to express my personal Chapter goals for the coming year.

Membership Drive. I believe that every Chief should go through an initiation to be introduced into what being a real Chief is all about. In addition, I feel that every Chief should belong to the CPOA. I believe that this organization is the tool to continue the mentoring of Chiefs and makes the Chief Corps stronger.

Outstanding Chapter Award. I would like to see this Chapter receive the award for 1999. I will work with members to ensure a proper package is prepared and submitted so that Yorktown Chapter can be considered for the award.

Membership Service Hours. Not every member can participate in every activity that this Chapter has. I don’t expect them to. However, I would hope that each member considers what talents or interests they have and selects an activity that they would like to join in. I have asked the Vice President to keep track of what members attend the various activities and maintain a list of hours for the year. I will identify and recognize those that contribute 10 hours and 25 hours of service with a special certificate of appreciation.

Auxiliary Unit Membership Drive. The Unit needs our help to encourage CPO spouses to join the Auxiliary. I ask each member to at least provide your spouse with an application and information on this organization. Let them know that the meetings are the 1st Wednesday each month, at 1930, at the Port of York. Point of Contact: Mrs. Audrey Wahlkamp (757) 872-9277.

Planning Ahead. I encourage members to look ahead when it comes to this Chapter. Don’t be thinking “what should we do this month?”, instead be thinking “what are we going to do for the entire year”. If we look ahead, we will improve the chances that things get done on time and with success.

Open Communications. Don’t wait till the next meeting to bring your ideas or concerns to the Chapter. Contact me as soon as you are thinking of it. I can be reached by phone: (757) 898-2233, by e-mail: jgruber@rtc.uscg.mil, or if you are at RTC: Canfield Hall, room 116 (next to the Library).

Open Letter To Cape Cod Chapter CPOA

Open Letter To Cape Cod Chapter CPOA

Disclaimer:  Open letters are the opinions of the writer (s) and does not necessarily reflect the opinion of the
Cape Cod Chapter, CPOA

Fellow Chiefs, during the past several months there has been some urgent matters regarding our Chapter and the Wheelhouse that could possibly have some severe adverse effects on our local organization and its functioning ability.

Chapter President CPO “Bo” Hause has made several of the members aware that the CG AirSta “Chiefs Mess” has formed a committee and is advising the AirSta Command on matters regarding the CPOA Chapter, Wheelhouse operation and business of the concessionaire, CPO Jerry Piunti. In short, the matter is, the AirSta “Chiefs Mess” is currently and actively taking up this situation about the “Wheelhouse” operation in its entirety from the concessionaire and reduce the ability of informal stewardship of the Cape Cod Chapter CPOA in regards to the Wheelhouse.

A brief history on CPOA and “Chiefs Mess’.” The CPOA chapters were affected (circa 1993) all over this country and some abroad that were the informal stewards of chiefs messes at air stations, ashore and afloat commands for the “Chiefs Initiation” and other community functions. My initiation and inauguration to the Oregon Chapter CPOA was enjoyed by the participation of air station, afloat and ashore commands and was sponsored by the local chapter. That special day was recognized by all in the fraternal way that the USCG CPOA is committed to then and now. Today initiations and other functions, particularly when the function is related to the community were forced to divide the function of stewardship between the CPOA local chapter and the “Mess”. During the tenure of MCPOCG R. Jay Lloyd this informal stewardship was interrupted and a “Chiefs Mess” was established to take over some of these functions. The “Chiefs Mess” which was formalized and force fed (my opinion) to the “Chiefs” community had very little organization, no structure to conduct business under a rule of order and most of all was not legally able to handle funds and accounts. These “chiefs’ mess” immediately looked to the CPOA Chapters locally for the monetary backing to get themselves started. This caused a scission in the “Chiefs” community that exists today and is being demonstrated by the AirSta “Chiefs Mess” and others here on Cape Cod.

Through the persistence and diligence of our Chapter President and Immediate Past President (Bruce MacIntire) getting their foot in the door to curtail what was determined to be immediate closure and changing of the locks at the Wheelhouse. This would place the functioning ability of the Cape Cod Chapter CPOA at serious risk. It is time for awareness of this matter to be brought to the attention of all 200+ members of this chapter.

From this January meeting, we should move forward and try to maintain our stewardship for the “Wheelhouse” through our chapter officers, membership of active duty, reserve and retired CPO’s. We must be poised and ready to unify as a fraternal organzation/business group and impart the kind of impact on the U.S. Coast Guard just the same way we impact our community, with benevolence and fraternalism. If we are forced into uncertainty we will loose the significant impact of benevolence and fraternalism.

It is now a time to stand-up and show that we truly believe and live up to our motto “…In respect for those who have gone before us, and as a guide to those who follow…” Collectively, we must close ranks and bridge the divide by our show of unity and support of the U.S. Coast Guard in all aspects that our preamble defines.

I submit this letter to the Cape Cod Chapter CPOA under “the good of the order” to cause the membership to be aware and arouse their curiosity with regards to our Chapter and the Wheelhouse future. In addition, I will re-enter CPOA service as a Chapter officer in the capacity of president or vice president so that the minority is heard and the majority rules with the support of the membership. I further request and submit this letter for inclusion in the minutes and publication in the newsletter.

E-Mail Scams

E-Mail Scams and Jokes

Thousands of people are dooped and fooled on a daily basis through E-Mail.  Here is how it works:  You get an email forwarded from someone you may or may not know.   The email may be a sad story about a little girl who has cancer.  The email states that for everyone you forward this email to, the little girl will receive a donation of 3 cents to help her get healed or to get her something that she wishes for before she dies.  A real tear jerker!  Unfortunately, ALL these types of emails are fake!  They are designed as a sick joke to make people clutter up mail servers just for the fun of it.

If you receive emails like this, simply delete them!!! Do not respond even if it’s to tell them that it’s fake.  I did that and felt like a fool afterward knowing that I just cluttered someone’s email system to give a warning to others!  My intentions were good, but I was dooped just like everyone else!  It’s like a cancer that just keeps growing.  To stop the cancer, simply hit the delete button and forget all about it.

I have not personally had time to check out all these links.  I thank the fellow coastie who provided them in response to a situation like the one mentioned above.

Summer of 1977 I was senior reserve officer student. My last time at Yorktown. The first was in Direct Commission School, 1960. The last was water pollution school. Many schools in between. Enjoyed a lunch at the CPO mess in 1977. A young lady performed an interesting dance. Never happened at the O Club, to my knowledge. I have many happy memories of Yorktown. Quite a difference between barracks 92&94 of 1960 and the handsome brick officer quarters of 1977. Ex-enlisted, the USCGR was great. I always maintained that I never knew enough to be a chief. As an O-6, nothing changed.
