I have spent the weekend reflecting on the sacrifices made by our Brothers and their families this entire weekend. I am both humbled and grateful to have been among so many men who made the ultimate sacrifice that October Day so many years ago.
We are forever in your debt.
I hope this finds everyone back at home and settled back safely into their routines no matter where you live. I’d like to say thank you to all of you who traveled to Jacksonville and to those who arranged and held separate Remembrance Ceremonies in other locations. If you weren’t able to attend a Remembrance I’m sure you were with us in spirit.
Congratulations go out to our new appointees and Board Member. They are:
Richard Truman ; New Membership Chair
Jeff Hamman; Root Scoop Editor
Stacey Pollard; Board of Directors
I look forward to working with all of you. Your willingness to step up and answer the call of service to the BVA speaks volumes.
A special thank you again this year to Dan Joy whose tireless efforts and leadership set an example for us all.
