Maj Quentin Vaughn
Welcome to the OkinawaChapter of the NNOA.
Okinawa Chapter National Naval Officer Association, Greetings!
I want to congratulate all NNOA members and supporters who are achieving great things within and outside of the organization. Their dedication is invaluable and we appreciate their efforts and contributions. I would also like to congratulate Vice Admiral Michelle J. Howard on her unprecedented nominations to the rank of four star Admiral and Vice Chief of Naval Operations.
As we continue our course this year I look forward to working with each of you to fulfill our mission, revitalizing the chapter and positioning it for new levels of success. During this quarter, I eagerly anticipate interacting and socializing together during the upcoming fundraisers, quarterly church visit and monthly chapter meetings.
During the upcoming months the executive committee is pleased to provide education on leadership, finances, professional development, and the Pacific Area of Responsibility. This training is intended to cultivate and promote professional growth for each member. We are uniquely positioned in the Far East as a Blue-Green team committed to excellence and to sharpen each other so that we can be ready to fight tonight and win.
I encourage you to read the most recent message from our NNOA National President. Our chapter’s success has no limit because of the many diverse qualities we each possess. Together we can continue to uplift and challenge each other to make 2014 a year of personal and professional growth.
