President's Message

Fellow Mustangs, We are constantly evaluating our members, potential members, and whom constitutes being recognized as a Sea-Services Mustang. We recently received an application from a DCO LCDR who was a prior sea-service enlisted Marine and applied for membership. Your Board of Directors unanimously approved his application. 

Additionally, for those unaware, Naval Air Station Pensacola, Florida has five permanently assigned USCG cutters. Each one of these cutters has between one and three mustangs assigned and the Pensacola Chapter leadership has reached out to our NMA BOD for their chapter roles and corresponding National membership. I’m proud to report that the other Directors and I also unanimously approved the first of several (anticipated) applications, that from the Executive Officer of USCGC WALNUT (WLB-205) as a NMA member. Welcome Aboard X.O.!

In response to these non-traditional service applications, we are evaluating the bylaws to incorporate verbiage for “Uniformed Sea-Services” personnel. Other applications will still be both considered and evaluated on a case by case basis.

We’d like to hear your chapter news. For those of us that have private group pages, consider making some of your posts public?

Congratulations to our NMA Secretary John Penick on his promotion to CWO5.

Ship’s Store: is there interest in swag starting back up? We’ve done some preliminary research. Do you have a vendor you’d recommend? Ring in and let us know. 

HooYah Mustangs! Drop us a line anytime @

Best in advance & Very Respectfully Yours,

Evan A. Hipsley, Jr.

Commander U.S. Navy, Retired
President, Navy Mustang Association
