Commander Ray Lopez
Every year around this time, I try to take a minute to intentionally reach out to those I served with, and reminisce about our days in uniform. I love Veterans Day for many reasons, but most of all, it reminds us to gather together and lift each other up.
Some of you are already buried in snow! I hope everyone stays safe as winter takes over Michigan. But the snow also means our Mid-Winter Conference is coming up! I hope to see many of you there as we gather to celebrate the hard work of the middle-school and high school students put forward for our scholarship programs. The conference will be in Kalamazoo, and details are on our website!
Lastly, I would be remiss if I didn't wish my fellow Devil Dogs a Happy Birthday November 10! Again, membership, thank you for all you do. You make a difference in so many lives around Michigan, within and outside the VFW organization. Thank you for continuing to serve.
