Happy anniversary to our Association of Naval Services Officers and to our members!
Today, we celebrate our 37th year of service to our Hispanic shipmates of the Sea Services.
We are continuing to serve as the acknowledged leader in recruiting, developing and retaining Hispanics in the Sea Services. ANSO remains active and continues to support Hispanic officers and enlisted of the Sea Services through our mission of mentoring, career management and networking, as well as recruiting Hispanic men and women for the Sea Services. Our end goal is to assist the Sea Services reflect the leadership face of our nation by increasing the number of Hispanics in the senior officer and enlisted ranks of our Sea Services, through our mission, we work to ensure that every Sea Service Hispanic is the best-qualified candidate for promotion and selection to higher leadership positions. Moreover, ANSO continues to support local Hispanic communities, specifically in the area of K-12 education. Our aim is to improve education of our Hispanic youth and to offer them the opportunity to join the Sea Services when they are eligible.

All my best,
