On behalf of Wes Gibson, myself and the Board of the National Association of Naval Photography we would like to wish everyone a Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah and a Happy Kwanzaa. 2020 was a very hard year for a lot of us. Some of us have lost family members and friends to Covid, endured some personal and possibly some financial hardships but hopefully the New Year will bring some changes for the good. No matter what your political persuasion is, now is the time to bring America back together again. I would like to see us go back to being the country I was raised in. At my age I have no idea how much longer I will be around, but I am hoping for a change.
As everyone knows, Jim Russell and Greg McCreash are working hard to get our reunion together for 2021. The plan is for Fri., Sat. and Sunday the 23rd, 24th and 25th of April at the Pensacola Beach Holiday Inn Resort. We should be safe with these dates as I am sure most of us will have had our vaccines by then. Remember, some of us older Silver Salts that have medical issues will be in the group that is taken care of as soon as essential personnel get there shots, so hopefully Covid will not be a concern for this reunion. Mark it down on your calendars and make plans to attend, it should be a great get together, and we hope to see a large turnout for this reunion.
In closing, I would personally like to wish everyone the Happiest of Holidays and a peaceful, prosperous New Year.
