Department Commander Jerry Stewart 2017 - 2018
Department Commander March Message
Membership is the backbone of any organization. It is nice to see several Posts at or near 100%. Keep up the good work collecting dues and bringing in new members.
Myself, First Vice David Woodward, Department Service Officer Milton Willis and a contingent of Vermont Legionnaires and SAL members were in Washington DC in late February.
Many of us went to meet with Senator Sanders at his office. We discussed, among other topics, the transfer of the White River Junction VA Hospital Director to the Manchester NH VA Hospital. Along with Senator Sanders we are not in favor of this transfer. The White River VA Hospital is one of the best in the Country.
First Vice David Woodward, myself and my wife Gail went to the Wreath Laying Ceremony at the Korean War Memorial. Wreaths were laid by SAL Past Detachment Commander - John Waite and Squadron 67 Commander - Adam Holden. John laid his wreath in memory of his father. Both John and Adam are members of Chester Post 67.
Keep the faith that Spring is right around the corner.
For God and Country, God Bless our Veterans, Past, Present and Future
Huzon "Jerry" Stewart
