News for the Enlisted Monday Sept. 1, 2014
Now are the dog days of summer in Washington DC. The town is emptying for Labor Day events (hope all of you are going to do something festive). And federal Departments and Agencies are putting out stories that they hope will be covered during these slow news days. (As you can see some of them are interesting.)
Please remember that there is still time to plan to come down to TREA’s National Convention in Norfolk Virginia. It would be grand for us in the Washington Office to get to talk to you directly about what is going on in DC and what your thoughts and needs are. If you can, please come. It should be both useful and great fun.
