"FOREVER REMEMBER OUR GUARDIANS"
I would like to thank each and every one of you for having trust in me to serve as your President.
I will give all I have to serve you well. I would like to see our Department reach 100% in membership this year, 2014-2015. I know we can do it, if we get out and recruit along with our Buddy Poppies. It takes a little bit of effort, but we can do it for our Veterans.
My Special Project will be for the Fisher House at JBLM. (Joint Base Lewis-McChord)
Their mission is to provide our service members and their families a comfortable, nurturing and secure environment while they receive medical care at Madigan Army Medical Center (MAMC).
We have very dedicated and knowledgeable line officers and department chairman this year, who will be there for you.
We joined the VFW to serve our Veterans, which we must remember. Our Veterans really need our help right now and with your membership we can continue to support them.
We worked hard and had lots of fun this last year and I hope we can achieve that again this year. I am here if you need anything. If I don’t have the answer, I will get it.
My theme this year is "Forever Remember Our Guardians." We must never forget what our Veterans have done to serve our Country.
