Dear Fellow Alumni,

Congratulations to our newest graduates from Huntsville! The nine weeks went by way to fast. I enjoyed meeting you in Huntsvilleand look forward to seeing you again. The FBI Citizens’ Academy Alumni Association hopes you will consider joining as a full member and enjoying the rights to extra benefits that non-members do not have. If you will visit the website you can see all the extras that are lined up for the year.

June 14 is approaching. Our trip to Headquarters and Quantico is planned for June 14-17. It will be a great trip to Washington. In addition to the Birmingham Chapter being there, the New Orleans Chapter will also be there. The SAC from New Orleans is making the trip as is SAC Patrick Maley from Birmingham. It is a great opportunity to learn more about the FBI, socialize with members, and make new friends from New Orleans. If you are a graduate and an Alumni Association member you are eligible to make the trip.  Your guests are also welcome.  The deadline for registration is May 31st.

On May 11 the SAC gave us an impressive briefing on International Terrorism (IT). It came just a few days after an event in our country’s history that we will never forget. Murder of U.S. Nationals outside the United States; Conspiracy to Murder U.S. Nationals outside the United States; and Attack on a Federal Facility Resulting in Death were the charges. Usama Bin Laden, one of the worlds MOST WANTED, has been taken care of. IT is still a threat. Bin Laden was one of many so the war against terrorism goes on. SAC Maley provided us a lot of information and challenged us to be vigilant in our quest to eliminate IT.

We will be announcing dates for CERT Training, Range Day and another Sundowner event with the SAC soon. Watch the calendar for upcoming events and remember:  momentum, commitment, strength, opportunity, leadership and service are the words that define us in our journey to “making the Nation Safer Together.”

The storms of April 27 that hit Alabama did a lot of damage. That damage was to things that can be and will be replaced. Some of our members were directly affected. We all share in the hope of rebuilding. Lives were lost. Almost 250 people that were Alabamians were taken from us. We all knew somebody that is not here today. Let’s honor them by doing something for others.

Sincerely and Thank you,
Don Lupo
