Save the dates in your calendars. We will have our annual Navy Football luncheon in a little over a month, on Friday, August 27, 2021. Join us for an entertaining presentation by our very own Mike Yeager ’76. The former Navy Football Quarterback, who outscored Army 100-6, will recount the last season and give us a forecast of the upcoming season.
The venue will be at one of El Tiempo’s locations based on the expected attendance. We will send more information regarding tickets shortly. Until then, save the date. We look forward to seeing you all.
The Texas Gulf Coast Chapter is proud to have a connection to the latest recruitment ad for the U.S. Navy. The new ad, “The Definition of Determination,” features Commander Kelley Jones, daughter of Chapter Board Member Nelson Jones ’72 (You can even catch a glimpse of him in the opening shot). The autobiographical ad is sure to attract attention.
Commander Jones’ video is part of a “Make Your Name” campaign that highlights a variety of female leaders in the Navy. You can find more of the videos here.
