Words from the Commander
I would like to thank everyone in the Department for their continued hard work. If not for you we would not have a VFW of the Pacific. Your efforts this year have been truly amazing. This can be seen in the many committee reports and I saw it first hand as I visited each of your areas.
We are in the home stretch for this year. Post Commanders if you haven’t checked on your status for All State or All-American, you still have a couple more months. The deadline for All- State is 31 March. All-American deadline is 30 June. For those Posts that are looking for All- American, ensure that you are checking where you are in the member area for your division. You must be in the top 25 Posts for your division.
We are currently number 2 in membership, just .04% behind Europe and just a percent ahead of Alaska. Not to mention we are only 323 members from 100%. I am positive that we will make the 100% mark very soon. Of the 27 Posts in the Department we have 10 that are over 100% another 12 that are over 90% and 3 that are very close to getting 90%. Thus far only one District is over 100%. I’m sure that the other District will make it as well.
If you have any question please let me know.
Yours in Comradeship,
