List of Missing / Injured

    


Thank you chapter members!

Washington Chapter members added their own collections and donations to the chapterís contribution of $2,500 and brought our total ASMC Victims' Relief Fund contribution to
$4,745.00.


A MESSAGE TO THE MEMBERSHIP
FROM THE EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR

This is to express the thanks and appreciation of the National President and all members of the Executive Committee for your outstanding response to the ASMC Victims Relief Fund.

The fund closed with a total contribution of $39,900, which permitted ASMC to make a contribution of $1900 to each of 21 affected families. We received contributions from 57 chapters and 14 corporate members, vendors and friends. We rushed our contribution into the hands of the affected parties during the holiday season. All indications are that the gift was greatly appreciated. To our knowledge our donations were the first cash payment received by victims of the attack on the Pentagon.

In our transmittal letter to the recipients we informed them that the fund was assembled from our membership around the world. The letter went on to reinforce that our individual and national strength comes from unity during times of stress. In the name of ASMC we offered our condolences, blessings, and support.

The tragic events of September 11th have had some salutary outcomes. There has been a rebirth of patriotism and camaraderie. They also have produced perhaps the finest hour for many organizations including the American Society of Military Comptrollers.

We thank you again for your support.

God Bless America

Executive Director


The Washington Chapter Executive Board has approved a donation of $2,500.00 from the treasury.  Your personal donations are needed too.


A Special Message from the ASMC National President

To the Members of the American Society of Military Comptrollers (ASMC)

I am writing to express the sincere condolences of the American Society of Military Comptrollers to the families and friends of those who were killed or injured in the terrorist attack on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon, especially members of our Society.

At the time of this writing thirteen members are among the missing and presumed dead and three are in local hospitals. This despicable act has inflicted great damage on the United States of America and ASMC has suffered a tragic and disproportionate loss. As final information becomes available these names will be posted on the ASMC web site.

I urge individual members to take a moment of silence to remember our departed colleagues and friends. I have directed the Executive Director to establish the "ASMC Victims' Relief Fund." All Chapters will be given the opportunity to contribute to this fund. These contributions, together with a donation from the National Headquarters, will be used to make a financial gesture of condolence to each aggrieved family. Detailed instructions on the management of the fund will be provided in a separate communication.

The Commander in Chief has stated that eradicating the evil of terrorism will be a long and costly struggle. I call on each of you to redouble your efforts to insure each dollar is well spent, as a memorial to our fallen comrades.

God Bless America.

Robert Magnus
Lieutenant General, U.S. Marine Corps
National President
