March 2017 by Charles M. Brecheisen

Greetings Altair Shipmates.  Here is your report for March.

MILITARY EXCHANGES:  Shipmate Joe Basso sent me information from "The American Legion Magazine" March 2017 with the following information:  "Any honorably discharged veteran will be allowed to shop online for discounted military exchange products starting Nov. 11, Veterans Day, under a policy change announced by the Department of Defense.  As many as 16 million veterans stand to benefit."  That is great news!  Hopefully, they will have their software running by that date!

  Please welcome aboard shipmate Daniel C. Helman, SK3, 1962-1964.  Shipmate Helman resides in New Kensington, PA.  WELCOME ABOARD!  (No email)

Shipmate David R. Karlen, YN2  1962-1965 was located in Tucson, AZ but did not want to be added to the Altair list.

ALTAIR PHOTOGRAPHS:  Shipmate Stephen Woody found many rolls of Kodachrome 25 film that he took from Aug. 1963 to July 1964 and had them converted over to two CDs.  The photography was beautiful after all these years.  Shipmate DIck Braun has uploaded both CDs to the Altair photo website "" in the 1963-1964 gallery.  Thanks to both Shipmates Woody and Braun!

FINANCIAL:  The beginning and ending balance of cash-on-hand is $500.80; the beginning and ending savings balance is $8545.32 giving a total cash balance of $9046.12.  No income or expenses.

All for now.  Please direct any questions or comments to "cmbaltairaks32 [at]"

Best Regards To All............Charles
