Words from the Commander
I am so proud to have had the opportunity to serve as your Commander for this 2015-2016 term. It has been an excellent year, because of you all. At the beginning of the term, some high goals were set and am delighted to say that you accepted the challenges and worked hard to meet and exceed those goals.
With that being said, one of my goals was to put a hat and banner on every post and district and by 30th June we may not get 100 percent winners however we have broken a record for All State as well as stayed number 1 at National for the majority of the term.
We have several Early Bird winners of All State status to include Posts1054, 9612, 8180, 9985, 10033, 12147, 9951, 10217, 12146, 2917, 3457, 124, 2485,11447, 12130, District 3 and District 7. In addition to these Early Birds, there should be several more that attain All State by 30 June. Some of the Posts and Districts are also in the running for All American recognition. All in all, fantastic job!
Remember in my acceptance speech, “There is no I in team and this year proved it
what a great team and WE did it not I!”
As we head to the Convention in Chiang Mai, am pleased to announce that the incoming Commander in Chief of the VFW, Brian Duffy will be in attendance for this, our Pacific’s 50th Anniversary.
We are very fortunate to have Robert “Mo” Moses as our next Department of Pacific Areas Commander. Let’s all give him our energetic, dedicated and positive support to make our VFW Pacific even better. Mo is an outstanding leader and cares deeply about all of our Veteran’s, families and communities within the Department.
This is my last article in the “Typhoon” and I write it with deep pride and appreciation for you and your superb support for our Department
I humbly say Thank You and God Bless.
