To: WP-ORG Corps <corps@west-point.org>

Dear members of WP-ORG,

Please let me welcome new WP-ORG subscribers who have joined since our
last fund drive. WP-ORG is unique among Alumni Service Organizations;
welcome, and we hope that you find the services we offer to be useful
and timely. If you've not already done so (or haven't done so
recently), go to our home page (http://www.west-point.org), click on
the links and poke around a little. See if you can connect with that
long lost alum by visiting the class pages; post a job if you're an
employer and searching; visit my BLOG if you have time for some extra
reading; record your memories and honor our fallen on the Taps pages.
This scratches the surface of the services we're proud to provide.

WP-ORG's services are wholly funded by your donations to our
semi-annual fund drives. If you find yourself in a position to donate
please do, commensurate with your capability and the value you derive
from WP-ORG.

WP-ORG currently serves and supports members from West Point class
year groups, parents of current cadets and midshipmen, West Point
societies and parents clubs and the extended West Point community.

Our budget for the next six months of $98,590 may be reviewed at:

For the lawyers (you knew it was coming): WP-ORG is an independent
volunteer organization not officially affiliated with West Point or
the West Point Association of Graduates, although at times we work
very closely with both of them.
