The WWII Sylvania golf shirt looks great and we are considering it as a sale item to all the crews.  It will have USS Sylvania inscribed on it with no ship class (AFS-2) or WWII. It looks like a Navy Academy style golf shirt with yellow collar and yellow striping on the sleeves. (A very classy shirt).  Price $24   for XXL is $ 26.

  We are considering it as a new sale item  a black ball cap with words NAVY on it  with the colored battle ribbons that the AFS-2  earned over its 30 year history for a price of $15.

  Respond by letting us know, if there is enough interest
we will produce it to sell these two new items.

HELP – We need money making ideas to build our treasury?  

Write to John Pierce for these items,  please specify shirt sizes and
add $3.00 for shipping and
handling. Some shirt sizes may run out,
so we will order more when we have a large number of orders.
