If I read all the messages correctly, the two names were suggested to fill in
for somebody who had to bow out. Under those circumstances, the late

The only alternative I can see is to leave the post vacant and have the other
officers appoint someone.
Of course, I'm not a member and I live in Florida and have only been to North
Carolina twice, so....
