Gertrude Check (GC) Weekly Update E-mail Rejects
October 21, 2016)
recent weeks I have received many reject emails from my weekly GC
update emails; from the addresses that use the large free accounts
provided by many large companies, ie. MS (Hotmail, MSN), Yahoo, AOL
and even Google. (not compliant with RFC 5322)
I have researched the net to find
out what may be the cause, but the reasons (theories) seem to be
many. This occurs even when I send an e-mail to a single recipient.
Some of those theories are
expressed on these web sites.
You may want to consider:
“Why You Should Use Email Addresses From Your Own Domain As Your
As of this writing, Gmail, Yahoo!, AOL, Zendesk, rocketmail.com, and
ymail.com have changed their DMARC authentication standards to a
DMARC = reject policy. Based on this information, Gmail, Yahoo!,
AOL, Zendesk, rocketmail.com, and ymail.com email addresses cannot
be used as your list's "From" address. Once these new standards are
adopted, any email campaigns sent with those email addresses in the
"From" line will require that AWeber send your campaigns from an
alternate email address.”
(However, I already do this/ed))
Also I have noticed in recent
times, many times incoming emails are going into “junk” file, so I
check that every time I go online.
Also, if you want to be removed
from my list, please send me an email. “Please
remove me from your list”./Red
Base Officers Participate in Eagle Scout Award
October 17, 2016)
Recently, the Bremerton Base was invited to
participate in another Eagle Scout ceremony. On October 15th,
several Base members attended the Honor Court of Christopher
Danielson, who as a member of Troop 1540 of the Chief Seattle
Council, was recognized for his achievement of becoming an Eagle
Scout. After saying a few words on the parallel paths of Eagle
Scouts and Submariners, on the right, Base Commander Steve
Corcoran presented Danielson with a certificate, patch, and a
Base challenge coin. Base Vice-Commander Doug McKay, who is
also an Eagle Scout, presented Danielson with a special coin for the
Scouts. We were warmly received by all in attendance. At the
completion of the ceremony, a reception was held with plenty of
food. (PBC Jim DeMott Sends)

For those who do not know me, I'm Ric Hedman,
I'm the contact person for the Annual Auburn,
Washington Veterans Day Parade.
This year the
Auburn has asked the Submarines Veterans to lead off
the parade. We have decided to ask one of our
WW II Veterans to be the Parade Grand Marshall.
Who knows when our organization will be asked to
perform this honor again.
As such the Submarine veterans units will be at the
front of the parade. If you or any of your
membership would like to join us on November 5 for
the parade please feel free to attend. The more the
merrier. It will be crowded so please plan to arrive
at the staging point, (still to be announced), by
10AM. Many of us arrive earlier and
have breakfast together at the Sunshine Café near
the Transit Center.
The parade kicks off at 11 AM sharp with some sort
of Military flyover.
We would ask you to get this out to your membership,
if it doesn't conflict with other base functions, to
make this one of the largest subvet turn outs yet.
We are usually joined by part of the Silent Service
Motorcycle Club as well.
The parade is the largest Veterans Day Parade west
of the Mississippi River with over 200 units and up
to 30 marching bands and attended by over 10,000
Bremerton and Seattle Bases will be there with their
two floats, so, look for the submarines.
There is free parking on the day of the parade,
November 5, in the
Transit Center Garage just off "A" street at the
west end of town.
