SENCLAND Chapter Shirts
Based on the number of Survey responses indicating a desire for SENCLAND Chapter Shirts, the Board of Directors have approved opening an Online Store thru the Queensboro Shirt Company in Wilmington. Once setup, members will be able to access the store, select from a variety of shirts, and purchase directly from Queensboro. Shirts will then be shipped directly to the individual member. It is anticipated that the Online Store will be available in early September. Instructions on accessing the store will be made available at that time through the SENCLAND Web Site and Chapter Newsletters.
We are excited about scheduling our convention during the weekend of 15 November at the Cherry Point Marine Corps Air Station (MCAS). They have a newly opened waterfront convention center that we have booked for that weekend. Lodging on the base is available. We expect that prices for meals and lodging will be less than the Atlantic Beach hotel. A flyer and more information will be available in a few weeks.
Activities close by include an on-base golf course, 20 minutes to New Bern and 30 minutes to Ft. Macon, the NC Aquarium, Beaufort and Morehead City.
Please get the word out. Again, this is open to all chapter members their families and friends. Past military service is not a requirement to attend.

SENCLAND Hospice Program
Our Chapter Hospice Program to recognize Chapter members entering Lower Cape Fear Hospice facility or receiving Hospice treatment at home, with a Veterans Recognition Ceremony is underway. The ceremony will include the presentation of a service specific lapel pin and an appropriate certificate of service. Ideally, this would be scheduled during the first few days of Hospice Care. Spouses or family members of Chapter Members admitted to Hospice Care should inform Jason Clamme at Lower Cape Fear Hospice (910-442-3000), who will coordinate with Chapter representatives to schedule the Ceremony. Chapter members are ask to notify Jim Carper (910-262-7101) or Bonnie Carper (910-762-4524) immediately upon learning of any member or spouse entering Hospice care, so that no member goes without recognition.
The VA unveiled an online tool that should be easier for veterans and advocates to file a claim for disability compensation.

• The tool itself is found at
The tool asks some basic questions to get started and even steers the user toward the proper appeal route if that is the next step.
