No One Does More For Veterans
As yesterday's defenders of freedom, we want to welcome today's military service members into our ranks to become part of our elite group.  Our common bond is the battlefield, whether it is service in the Persian Gulf, Korea, Kosovo, the war on terrorism or peace-keeping expeditionary campaigns. Your courage and sacrifice have made a difference in preserving and defending world peace.

Commander's Corner

Commander Charles Williams

URGENT!! Please get your registration form and money in for the trip to National Home to Department if you are riding the bus the deadline is the C of A. If you are planning on driving we need the registration form and money to give the hotel contract representative names of those who will be showing up. No registration form for either mode of travel you risk having to pay the normal price of the hotel or finding another place to stay, and I don't want that take advantage of the contracted price, your call. If you are not going at all please submit your donation to Department because it is a criteria for the All State Program we rather have a good turnout however donations are required so we can give a check at the business meeting that Saturday. If we DO NOT have enough people to fill the bus then the department will be forced to cancel it, and those who have submitted to ride the bus will be contacted and have to drive themselves. The department cannot cover the shortfall like last year because the bus price has increased this year due to inflation and gas prices. The trip will still happen and Missouri will be represented by those who will be driving such as myself if the bus gets cancelled. "Heck or high water" this will happen because those families and the State of Wisconsin is counting on us delivering on Missouri Days like always we will just have a motorcade instead to the campus. God bless, see you at the C of A.
