Words from the Commander
First once again let me congratulate and thank each and every Comrade in the Department as we have continued to be ranked #1 Nationwide in membership each and every month from the beginning of this 2015-2016 term! This is a true mark of dedication and commitment proving that the DPA is the tip of the sword for the VFW.
I would also like to congratulate the following new District and Post for achieving the 100% or greater mark in membership since my last article in the March Typhoon: District 3, Post 2485. There are now 2 districts and 15 Posts who are eligible for All State as well as All American.
The National Standings for Divisions has the following DPA Posts and District within the top ten of their Divisions: Div.2 Post 8180 #6, Div.6 Post 124 #8, Div.8 Post 12147 #3, Div.9 Post 12146 #3, Div.3 District 7 #4, Div.3 District 3 #6, Div.6 District 6 #9.
As you know there is only one more issue for the TYPHOON for this year prior to the Convention. I hope everyone is making sure you have made the necessary requirements to finish out this year and if you are a contender for All-State and All American you have or will met the requirements. My goal was that all Districts/Posts has a banner year!
The Convention Book is in need of your advertisements. Time is getting short and if you did not know this is the only fund raiser for the DPA. Please contact Bob Zaher as soon as possible this is our 50th anniversary Convention and we need Past, Present, as well as future articles and pictures as well as sponsors. Spend some money and make the DPA shine on our 50th anniversary by contributing inputs to the Book!
If you are interested in serving on a committee next year, please contact SVC Moses so he can consider you for a position. Let us all team up and ensure that SVC has no unfilled positions and that he does not have to find someone to fill the positions. Please remember if you have been elected or appointed to a position order your VFW cover and name badges soon as they will be backlogged in about 2 months.
The 50th anniversary DPA Convention registration is live on the DPA Web Site please register if attending. National Representative will be SVCinC Brian Duffy.
Thanks to all who served a position this year your success has proven itself!
