I want to thank you all for your support for our officers this year. We are all starting new positions with steep learning curves. Added to that are outside restrictions and limits on what and how we can participate in our activities. I would ask all of you to keep the faith, stay calm, and show a lot of patience for this year. We will get our jobs done, but adjustments have to be made which are out of our norm and comfort zone. Rest assured, we will do our best to get our job done and move our Department forward to the benefit of our Veterans. If we keep the Vets in mind and work to their betterment, all other things will work out. I promise to do the best job I can to make this a positive and beneficial year for all of us.
