July 28th will leave for New Orleans for National Convention.

Have talked many times with State Adjutant Butch, Assistant Adjutant Josh, Administrative Assistance Gina, PDC Remus and PDC Valtinson, Sr vice Rick Jarvis and many others on what seems like hundreds of issues, and thoughts. One out standing thing about this job you have much support and teamwork every one is willing to help.  I think we are gaining on the Auxiliary and Chapters working closer together as a team as we hold the Chapter meetings please attend the one in your area. Drove 1,857 miles spent 18 ½ days working with DAV items at home or away from home I am truly enjoying this experience and meeting so many of you is really the high light of this job. Once again thank you for the confidence you have shown in me. GOD Bless each of you and your families stay safe!!!
