Re:         2018-2019 Commanders Message

Hello everyone                                                                                        April 30, 2019


There has been improvement with membership, as a Detachment we are currently at 90.87% and the next National Goal of 100% is due by 5/8/19. Please continue to reach out to any member who has not paid their dues. With the Detachment Convention right around the corner it would be nice to close the year with a strong finish in our membership. Congratulations go out to Districts 1, 6, & 7 for reaching the 100% goal. Also congratulations to the 51 Squadrons who have reached the 100% or above goal; Great Work Everyone.

Our Detachment Adjutant Cliff Smith is working very hard getting everything together for the convention so when you arrive everything will be ready for you. If you are attending but you have not contacted Cliff please do so very soon as the cutoff date will be here before you know it. Also please don’t forget to file your Squadron Consolidated Report. The Detachment needs that information for reporting our achievements as a Detachment for the past year to both Department and the National Organization.


I look forward to seeing many of you at this year’s Convention.  



             Working together we can make a difference in the lives of our Veterans, their families and our communities.
