President’s Message August 2022


    Most of you know that we work with the VA hospital in Ann Arbor to make sure that any patient in need is provided with underwear and/or pajamas. It is a larger undertaking than you might think, involving ordering, storing and delivering thousands of dollars' worth of clothing. If any of you would like to help with these chores let John Kinzinger know. Of course, we will let everyone know when we hand out embroidered shirts at Christmas time. It is a party-like atmosphere and very enjoyable.

What you may not know is that we, from time to time, upgrade meals at the hospital. Of course, the hospital has a food budget which we enhance on occasion so that the patients can enjoy a steak dinner. We did it once this last month and have two more scheduled this year.

Several of our chapter members attended the Vet Fest at Washtenaw Community College last month. We sold some merchandise and talked to many veterans and their family members. Our Vice President and Membership Chairman, Vance (Dogman) McCrumb, was there passing out literature and twisting arms. Under his leadership, our chapter now has 217 members. If you know a Vietnam era veteran who isn’t yet a member, tell them about us or send them to our website at www.vva310.org . We strive to provide fellowship and to do good works.

I’ll see you at our next meeting. In the meantime, stay safe and stay proud.

Stan Harrison, President
