Default Army MARS


Finally got a response from the Army MARS Program Chief with an application and cover letter. I promptly filled it out and sent it back.

If you go to the Army MARS site dont bother with the e-mail address listed for membership info as apparently it doesnt work. Just look up the contact e-mails for the Officers and send the Chief an e-mail.

Now lets see how long it takes to get anything else ..

Default Don't be so quick to count MARS out yet........

I have been in MARS almost 20 years. Just made Region Staff Officer.

Lots going on behind the scenes. Our future was bleak a few years ago, but times have changed and there is a tremendous opportunity for members to support state and federal agencies.

Watch us over the next 18 months.

I'll post more from time to time as this happens
