Hurricane Harvey has brought historic levels of rain to Texas, Louisiana and Mississippi. Our shipmates in these areas are facing disastrous flooding as they recover from the long-lasting remnants of the storm. Please join me in keeping our shipmates from these areas in your thoughts and prayers.
For those of you who may want to do something to help those impacted by Harvey, please consider donating to organizations known as “VOADs”: Voluntary Organizations Active in Disasters. These are led by trained and experienced disaster assistance professionals. This is a great way to ensure your donations are actually being shared with those in need, with maximum impact.
