 Volume VII Issue II Fall - 2004 
Help The SCSAA Identify Alumni and
Families Serving in the Military

The alumni association is hoping to identify any alumni and/or their family members who are serving in the military. We hope to make a display of photos of each person who is currently in our nation's military and particularly those in Iraq and Afghanistan. These will be displayed in Alumni Center and be taken to our events where it will enjoy a prominent space.

To date we have only heard from a few people. While I know that people have mentioned family serving in their "Alumni News" and are included there, I hope that you will take the time to let us know formally and send a picture for our display. We will try to post all pictures on the website as well.

Please send your photos and information about you or your family member to the association address or you can e-mail Bonnie Curtis at Alumni Center, This is an on going project so consider these photos just the beginning.

Here are two pictures we received. We wish you to know that we thank you all for your service and that we keep you in our thoughts and prayers
