2010 NPA News
1. As the Natural Physique Association prepares for another year in Bodybuilding, Fitness and Figure things appear to be on the upward climb.
We are looking for a much improved year over the previous one. The Natural Physique Association continues with its’ mission of discovering the
champions for tomorrow and allow that one more opportunity for those who love the sport of Natural bodybuilding and fitness/figure competitions.
2. Once again I salute the United States Army (20+ years of honorable service which includes 36 months as a drill instructor, 27 months service
in the old guard and 24+ months as a First Sergeant), and a graduate of the Sergeants major academy. I truly understanding duty/honor/country
and now entering into the legal retirement status of 62 years of life I find myself still remembering old acquaintances, appreciating life, and more
thankful than ever for good health, friends, fans and blessings. I did lose a great friend of 30+ years on June 19, 2009 in Mrs. YeSok Silas. May
she rest in peace and enter into the Golden Gates of heaven when our savior returns.
