Mentors for Veer Naaris

NFMC has started the system of Mentors for Veer Naaris. One of the Veteran living in the vicinity of the Veer Naari, is requested to be the Mentor and keep in touch with her on atleast monthly basis .and inform Hon.Secy if any help is needed by her. .This would make the Veer Naari feel that she is still part of the Navy.

Old Age Home

The Mumbai Charter gave thought to the requirement of homes for the old and the needy & for those who were alone for some reason. The current situation finds old people with their children living abroad and no one to take care of them especially if they are very ill/ immobile. We have suggested to NHQ, that the first floor of the Adarsh building , if ever allotted to Navy for Welfare purposes ,should be earmarked as Old Age Home .

Matrimonial Alliance

Some veterans had suggested that they would like to open matrimonial alliance for their children with Defence families. We have instituted a system, in which veterans could email the details of their prospective children to the Hon. Secy. who in turn would promulgate the same to all the Foundation members including to the President of other Chapters as well. Interested Veterans could then talk directly to the prospective groom / brides parents. This system is being utilized fruitfully by the Veterans. The Charter is only felicitating the Alliance. Glad to inform that as on date , three alliances have already taken place.

Quarter Decks

Since 2013 ,,NFMC has started the practice of awarding cash prize of Rs.5000 /- to the Veteran whose article , as per the themes promulgated by NHQ, is published in the QuarterDeck.

WhatsApp Group

NFMC has started a WhatsApp group of all the Members of the Mumbai Foundation as means of secondary communication by President / Secy of the Navy Foundation which is being used extensively for passing communication in addition to the promulgation of useful info by email.

Tributes / Eulogy

NFMC has started the practice of inviting Tributes / Eulogy from the members for the departed soul of deceased Veterans which is read out during the Foundation AGM .The best Tribute is also sent to Editor QD for inclusion in the Quarterdeck .

Veterans Day at Sea

Over the past 4 years , Veterans Day at Sea is being conducted by FOCWF as part of the Navy week celebrations in Nov each year.This event has become very popular as Veterans are able to take their Children / Grand Children for the Sea Outing.
