2023-2024 National Legislative Ambassador Sherry Howland
I love this time of the year, as we enjoy the many holidays and festivals gathering with family, friends and veterans. However, it is a reminder that we are closing in on our 2023–2024 year.
Our National President Carla Martinez’s theme for 2023-2024
Banding Together for Our Veterans
Carla notes that with our help as Legislative Chairs we are continuing the fight for all our veterans’ needs with bills we want supported by our legislators.
As Department Chairs I appreciate you communicating with me throughout this year and submitting your reports. I make a quick reminder that the quality of your Promotional and educational materials is what matters for judging for National awards.
