Commander's Message


We should look at the past and evaluate our performances. Recognize all the good we have done and correct our mistakes. However, we should never loose track of our purpose.

Most of us know it as Section III. Now it is called Sec. 230102. We've all heard it recited at meetings. In fact, probably so many times that it doesn't register or has become irrelevant.

I encourage you to take time and read that section again and let "our purpose" open your minds, open your hearts, and open the doors to your posts.

"To assist worthy comrades"; "To perpetuate the memory and history or our dead, and to assist their widows and orphans"; "To foster true patriotism".

These are but a few mentioned.

I urge members to re-assess their priorities and recommit to "our purpose" To those of you who are visiting our webpage and qualify, I encourage you to join your fellow

veterans in strengthening "our purpose". We must represent and set examples that encourage, patriotism, our flag, and love of country in our communities.
