10 Navy | Winter 2018 Membership Update Y our association has hit the ground running this year with several exciting projects that will help us grow in ranks and strengthen our Voice for America's Sailors. AUSN will soon have (drumroll … ) a new website that promises to be contemporary, interactive, engaging and very informative. Great content, awesome photos and room for plenty of expansion — we're even including a whole experience for AUSN's chapters to have a page of their very own. Once we get past the so-launch testing phase, we expect to go live in February. Stay tuned for more information. We're in an all-out push to grow membership and have already launched several efforts on Facebook, Twitter and other platforms, shiing the paradigm and reaching beyond to the places where Sailors go, where they learn and where they live. But that's not enough. We need your support to help us grow at the grassroots level. Here's something to chew on … Perhaps you remember that in our early years as the Naval Reserve Association, Reserve officers gathered at their duty stations, forged strong bonds during their time together and encour- aged one another to band together to bring the best to their fellow Reservists. Members encouraged others to join. We know that, today, many of our members are now Reserve retired, some retired twice and others are living in locations far from their shipmates. While that's t rue, we contend that our members are in an even better position to help AUSN be effective on the local level. Legacies, Lessons and Leaning In Only you can help make 2018 great for our shipmates. MASS COMMUNICATION SPECIALIST 2ND CLASS SIERRA D. LANGDON Friends and family wait for their Sailors as the aircraft carrier USS Nimitz returns to its homeport of Bremerton, Wash., Dec. 10 after a six-month deployment. The Nimitz Carrier Strike Group returned from a regularly sched- uled deployment to the Western Pacific. Through community engagement with active-duty and Reserve personnel and their families, AUSN members living close to Navy installations have the opportunity raise awareness of AUSN's mission as the "Voice for America's Sailors."
