Welcome to the Navy Postal Clerks Association WebSite
This site and its related Association is for past and present Navy members of the Postal Clerk rate (established 1960) and their families. Also pre and post PC that served as navy postal clerks are welcome as are Marine Corps Postal Clerks, and any officer or civilian employee that served in a postal billet. Any and all family members of a deceased postal clerk are welcome to join. The association is made up of former, retired and active men and women of the Naval Postal Service who have been serving the fleet since October 1960, and the Mail handlers before them.

There is a myth that the association is a bunch of old Chiefs, this is not a fact as we have PCSN’s to PCCM’s, serving as little as 2 years to over 30 years, regular Navy as well as reserves.
The purpose of the association is:  

  1. To promote the social welfare of the Navy Postal Clerk community.
  2. To conduct programs for charitable and educational purposes.
  3. To sponsor or participate in activities patriotic in nature.
  4. To provide social and recreational activities for it’s members.

  Along with the above, we also have a goal of keeping the tradition of hard work and dedication of the men and women of the Naval Postal Service and the Mail Handlers before them alive.   Postal Clerks are among the most known people of any command, sometimes maybe not the most liked, but still the best known.   You can wear the a Navy Retired or a Navy ball cap and many times will be told “Hello Shipmate”, but wearing the Navy Postal Clerk Association cap, you are more likely to hear “did you know postal clerk so and so   If you have any questions about this site, please feel free to contact Mike Bertalan NPCA@roadrunner.com

NOTE FROM THE PREZ alt=

Happy Thanksgiving to all members of the Navy Postal Clerk Association, their family members and friends.
Thanksgiving is a favorite holiday for me. Despite challenges that I may face during the year and occasional ups and downs, I always have something to give thanks for. My family is doing well and we all have a safe place to live and plenty to eat. I also have some friends I appreciate very much. I have what is meaningful and material things do not matter. Enjoy the holiday and share my thanks with others postal clerks that may not yet bea  member.

2016 NPCA REUNION PLANNING UNDERWAY
 alt=
Terry Baardsgaard (Reunion Planner for 2016) and I represented the Navy Postal Clerk Association (NPCA) at a “Your Military Reunion Connection” event in Nashville, TN, 27-30 July 2014. The purpose of this visit was to start the planning process for our 2016 reunion. The Nashville Convention & Visitors Corporation hosted this event. We had a busy schedule attending workshops and participating in market place meetings with sales people and tourism personnel from twenty-five areas of the country. Our host arranged for a tour of the Country Music Hall of Fame and historic RCA Studio B where Elvis Presley and other famous singers recorded songs. We went to an Elvis impersonator show, and attended the Grand Ole Opry show where we were given a backstage tour of Opry spaces. We also ate some good barbecue at the Wild Horse Saloon. Reunion Planners from other military branches also participated in the events. Terry and I, accompanied by our wives, were shown a great time. Nashville is a good choice for the reunion. Terry and I are excited about arranging the 2016 reunion and will do our best to make it enjoyable and memorable to all association members and guests who attend. Our first step is to select the exact dates for our reunion, late April/early May 2016 remains our focus. The next step is for Terry to submit a Request for Proposal (RFP) to the appropriate office in Nashville stating all of our needs. From the feedback we get we then select a reasonably priced hotel. Once this is completed we will focus on steps to complete the planning process necessary to make everything happen and fall in place. I will provide periodic updates as our planning efforts progress including the exact dates of the reunion, the hotel cost, and other items of interest such as tours, etc. For all association members: I request you contact shipmates and pass the word, encouraging more people to join the NPCA. I wish I would have joined earlier than I did! Not only is reuniting with old friends good, but the opportunity to visit some great cities and attend some outstanding events and see attractions is worthwhile.

NPCA President
