Dear NNOA Family,
It is with great sadness that I send the news of Mrs. Mildred Brewer passing. Mrs. Brewer was the mother of one of our long time champions Vice Admiral David Brewer, US Navy, Retired. Mrs. Brewer lived a very full and productive life and was less than a month from celebrating her 102nd birthday. Mrs. Brewer lived a life of purpose that included service as an elementary school teacher for almost 50 years. The Brewer family legacy of service continues in the scholarship foundation they established.
To commemorate her legacy, the Brewer Family will be asking those inclined to donate to a college scholarship & elementary school empowerment fund taught in four Title One schools. As soon as more details are available, we will pass them via NNOA social media and email.
Please join me in sending our prayers and thoughts to VADM David Brewer and his family.
V/R, Sinclair Harris, RADM USN Retired, President, NNOA

Notice: Funeral service for Retired USCG Commander Al Bernard, CDR Al Bernard (ret.).
CDR Bernard was a Coast Guard cutterman, exceptional leader, and active mentor who retired in 2000. I recall him for his exceptional professionalism and magnetic personality.
CDR Bernard passed away before the New Year. His funeral is next week at Arlington National Cemetery where he will be buried.
Chris Soto reported that “Al was my uncle, a mentor, and the biggest influence on me to join the service. Al didn’t want many people to know he was sick, including our family, until he was near the end. Despite his stubborn-ness, I am sure Al (looking down) would love to have colleagues and friends present.”
I’m confident that Al’s wife, Ann, would appreciate it as well.
Here are the details:
When: January, 31st @ 9am
Where: Arlington National Cemetery
(Arrive at the Administration Building at the Cemetery before 9 and instructions will be given from there)
