MAY 2005 REPORT by Charles Brecheisen

Greetings Altair Shipmates. Here is your monthly report for May 2005.

By not replying to this email seems to work as I have had no problems in May. Well, one day I had 21 Spams on this email address, but that seems to have tailed off.

SHIPMATES: We gained 2 new shipmates in May, bringing the total to 398. The new shipmates are:

Martin Summann, RM1, 1966-1967, Virginia Beach, VA

Edward J. Rice, Jr., RM3, 1961-1963 (I need your address Ed)


FINANCIAL REPORT: The beginning May balance was $1110.11 with no income and expenses (postage) of $37.00 leaving a balance of $1073.11. The "special fund" balance remains the same.

ALTAIR NEWSLETTER: The newsletter is about 75% complete and I hope to have it in the mail in the next couple of weeks.

ALTAIR BLOG SITE: Don't forget to check out the Altair blog site. It's really a neat site and shipmate Dick Braun has done a super job getting it up and running. The site can be found at

ALTAIR HISTORY: Pat Malato sent me a terrific Altair history book that he was given while aboard. The book is titled "USS Altair [AKS32], Home Port, Naples Italy, 1963-1965" and lists information on the various ports the Altair would visit. Included was the "Change of Command" program and a formal invitation; plus Pat's "Armed Forces Liberty Pass." Loads of information. Many thanks Pat!

All for now. Please contact me at with any questions or comments.
