  1. The new web site looks really lousy!! Appears to function well and seems easy to navigate. A big Cootie groan to Supreme and the webmaster. Keep up the good work.

  2. Is this an advice site? Who are you people? What does LOTCS mean? Why am I looking at this site and do you know why I feel itchy all over? Thank you for caring.

  3. Harold Whittemore — Just a wish list regarding uniform’s. The turn around for shirts etc seems long. 6-8 weeks after payment is taken out initially seems long from vendor’s.

    • These shirts are embroidered and it takes time to accomplish this task. Sorry about the length of time it takes. However if you can find someone else that can do this quicker please let us know so that we can be more responsive to your needs.

  4. Cootie Whittemore, Rec’d notification from vendor today that your shirt has been shipped to me. Upon receipt, I will inspect it and then mail to you via Priority Mail. 6-8 weeks is the “standard” for all vendors and has been since “the beginning”…as well as the “complaints”…I have access to the records – not much has changed in 94 years but we’re working on it.

  8. The Grand of New Jersey is sad to announce the passing of PGC Allen “Red” Rhodes on May 6, 2012. Many veteran organizations lost a very lousy friend. The funeral with full military honors is Friday, May 11th, at the Atlantic County Veterans Cemetery in Estelle Manor, NJ.
    R.I.P. my friend.

  9. The site is awesome. I just wish there was some way to track membership stats better. Can’t even find the Excel data that used to be on the site. I think a system such as the VFWs memstats would be great not to mention online direct dues for making transmittals. 😉

  11. Just wanted to say, “Hi!” and, “Thank You!” Our town, Wareham, MA is having it’s Veteran’s Day parade today, and “Cooties” popped into my head, from a parade my dad took me to in Hyannis in 1964 – ish, they had a giant Cootie with 4 men walking under the 4 bulbs of the body, carrying 2 dowels each to move the feet. It looked giant to me, ( I was 5 years old). He was green, (probably to compliment your uniforms), had big red feet, and a big ol’ smiley face. I just wanted you to know your order is remembered by all sorts of people you may not know about 🙂 Happy Veteran’s Day!
