COMMANDER'S COMMENTS

    I think we will all agree this was a very hot summer. I was beginning to feel like I was back in the tropics. Having spent over 22 years living in the Philippines and southern Florida, I was much, much, much younger then. You expected warm temperatures year-round. I'm looking forward to the pleasant days of fall, bringing more pleasant daytime and nighttime temperatures.  An additional pleasure of fall is enjoying the beautiful coloring of our Valley forest as it adorns itself with its bright colors.

     But wait, what awaits us after fall has passed. Let us not dwell on slippery roads and shoveling snow but let us hope that spring comes soon.

    This summer has been very busy for our Chapter. For those who have taken a part in our various public functions, you should be proud of

what you have been part of - reminding those who do not wish to remember, or have not been schooled concerning the United States military's effort to quell the advancement of communism. A line was drawn and we stepped forward to defend a country and government from being swallowed up and imprisoned by communist rule.
