Commander Report January 2018

Very slow month, I had time to get a lot of computer work in with very little pressure. Hope you all have had a good start to 2018. It’s hard to believe Veterans on the Hill rally is almost upon us March 12th, and Mid Winter Conference February 25th, and only 3 ½ months to end of my tour. Drove 1,246 mile, spent many hours on phone calls and doing computer work. Several emails back and forth with CVSO Roseau County Marty Howes; talked to many executive committee members; good month to be home and off roads with the weather we have had. Feb will be very busy month for many of us. May God bless each of you and your family’s.
