The Vietnam Veterans of America National Chapter of the Year - 1999 & 2007
President’s Message -
Greetings Brothers and Sisters,
Spring is here officially, according to the calendar; the temps say we haven’t quite reached it, but the warmer temps are just around the corner. Gena and I just returned from Nashville, and were teased by 70 degree days. Spring is bringing in new life; the birds are chirping in the morning as the sun is coming up. The trees are starting to bud. The grass is starting to turn green… New life. This ties to our chapter having Elections the 2nd Sunday of April. Changing of the guard brings in new ideas. My hope and wish is that everyone continues their support for these officers, as you have for my fellow officers and me, during the last two years. It has been a great honor, that you allowed me to sit at the head table and be your President. You are a great group of veterans; but, more importantly, you are great friends. We all have a passion to serve others, be they veterans at the hospital, returning soldiers from the current wars, or each other. We are there for all who have served this great nation and will continue to do so.
I am proud to have been at the head table, not only as your President, but as well the 10+ years previously, as your Treasurer. Chapter 310 is by far the greatest chapter!
God bless you and this wonderful nation!
Phil (Flip) Hecker
