Time to Fuel WP-ORG's Boiler! By: Jack Price PDF Print E-mail
The leaves are starting to turn along the Blue Ridge Parkway, and the coffer is getting light!   Just as I have to spend some time cutting and splitting wood for Winter, so must WP-ORG replenish our operating
funds for the next six months.
Our goal is $99,590.   FD38 budget detail
There have always been two characteristics about our fund drives. The  first is that we are supported by a broad base of gracious donors, but  no "whales" who tend to disappear just when you most need them!   The  second is that we state our modest goal, we reach it, and we then send  a message out telling you to "Stop Sending $ !"
There is no floating  bar that gets raised as the donations flow in.  Reports of overall campaign status and donations by affiliation category are online as the fund drive progresses.
Speaking for the Board of Advisors, WP-ORG's hundreds of volunteer moderators and webmasters, and our two and one-half employees, THANK YOU!  The depth of talent among our members, and your willingness to participate is unique in  my experience.
Your donations make WP-ORG services possible. Please donate to Fund       Thank you!

While I have your attention, an ADMIN note.WP-ORG established on-line Eulogy Pages for deceased graduates back in 1998, and currently has 20,444 entries on these pages. WPAOG decided to try toduplicate this effort recently and the classes are confused.   An argument put forth by WPAOG was that they are permanent, and WP-ORG may be  gone someday. Our view is we exist only in niches inadequately serviced by them.  As a 501(c)(3) we have a dissolution agreement that targets  WPAOG as the recipient for all our assets, including the Eulogy Pages.   They will not disappear.   Here is an example of two offerings.
follow to:
 Let your classmates use the one they prefer.   WP-ORG does not use these  sites to market other offerings, solicit donations, nor do we charge  the families to add additional photographs. In fact, there are NO charges associated with WP-ORG Eulogy Pages.
DoD Identified the Airmen from C-130 crash PDF Print E-mail
BAGRAM AIRFIELD, Afghanistan - This weekend, the Department of Defense identified the six Airmen assigned to the 455th Air Expeditionary Wing who died on Oct. 2 when a C-130J Super Hercules aircraft crashed shortly after takeoff from Jalalabad Airfield, Afghanistan, said a Dyess Air Force Base press release.
According to the press release, the Airman killed in the crash included Capt. Jordan Pierson, Capt. Jonathan Golden, Staff Sgt. Ryan Hammond, Senior Airman Quinn Johnson-Harris, all deployed from 317th Airlift Group at Dyess AFB, along with Senior Airman Nathan Sartain and Airman 1st Class Kcey Ruiz who deployed from the 66th Security Forces Squadron at Hanson Air Force Base, Massachusetts. The wing held a morning fallen comrade ceremony on Oct. 3 to honor the Airmen who “made the ultimate sacrifice” doing their duty on the “combat frontier.” Fellow wingmen paid their respect and mourned their loss, and after a brief prayer from the wing chaplain, the squadron commanders of the fallen were provided the opportunity to address the service members who gathered at the ceremony, stated the press release.

Army Denies that Ranger School was Fixed PDF Print E-mail
The U.S. Army issued a blistering denial late Friday that the recent Ranger school course was “fixed” to allow women to pass and earn the coveted Ranger tab.
In a statement, Brig. Gen. Malcom B. Frost, the Army’s chief of public affairs, said that a People Magazine article charging that Army Capt. Kristen Griest and 1st Lt. Shaye Haver were given special treatment was “flat-out wrong” and “pure fiction.”
The article by Susan Katz Keating was headlined: “Was It Fixed? Army General Told Subordinates: 'A Woman Will Graduate Ranger School,' Sources Say.”
The magazine’s report went on to cite the repercussions of the unnamed general’s influence on subordinates at Fort Benning, Ga., involved in conducting the first Ranger school course open to women that began earlier this year.
‘”It had a ripple effect’" at Fort Benning, where Ranger School is based, says a source with knowledge of events at the sprawling Georgia Army post,” the magazine article said.
"Even though this was supposed to be just an assessment, everyone knew. The results were planned in advance," the article quoted the source as saying.
In his statement for the Army, Frost ran through a list of allegations in the article that he said were untrue.
