THANKS.
IT HELPED ME DECIDE WHAT I SHOULD DO.
ANNOUNCED MY DECISION THE NEXT MORNING.
NO ADA MANDATE FOR ANY SYSTEMS ANY LONGER. WILL PROVIDE THE SUSTAINING
SUPPORT AS RECOMMENDED BY THE NRC.
WILL EXPECT THE SOFTWARE ENGINEERING PLAN AND THE PROGRAMMING LANGUAGE
THATS BEST FOR THE APPLICATION TO WIN.
HOPE ADA95 WILL INDEED PROVE TO BE THE BEST FOR MOST APPLICATIONS.. GOOD
LUCK.

I would like to thank each of you for taking the time to speak at last
Wednesday's special ACM meeting.  I believe the attendees would all
agree
with me that it was a worthwhile evening.  This meeting provided
everyone
(who braved the weather & traffic) a valuable opportunity to hear your
insights and views about the NRC committee report.  More importantly it
gave participants a chance to discuss an issue that is very important to
the U.S. Department of Defense as well as the local software industry.

P.S. I apologize for the lack of our usual refreshments.  The local ACM
chapters, like the federal government, are struggling with insufficient
funds to do the job we as professional would like to.  Perhaps, with
your
help, we can return WAdaS (our primary revenue source) to profitable
status.
