Quick Notes from the VHPASMO President

 

The Executive Council has proposed a change to the Chapter by-laws affecting the terms of service for elected positions.  This proposal will be voted on by the members at the 4th Quarter membership meeting to be held on November 5, 2016.

The current by-laws provide for a vice-president elected for a two year term.  Following the two year term, the vice-president is moved into the president position for a two year term.  This process necessitates a four year commitment on the part of persons wanting to serve.  A recommendation from a chapter member was made that the chapter consider changing this to a one year term in each position. The executive council discussed it and proposes a change to the by-laws such that a member elected to the vice-president will serve a one year term, followed by a one year term as president of the chapter.

For those of you in the Springfield, MO area, I just got word from John Sorensen that the last Honor Flight of the year is scheduled on 1 November 2016, and is scheduled to arrive at 2130 hours (that’s 9:30 p.m. for those of you who have been thoroughly civilianized).  Anyone in the area who wishes to be on hand to greet the Veterans when they arrive is invited to be at the Springfield-Branson National Airport about 9:15 or so.

I haven’t mentioned it before, but as Honor Flight information is put out, if you can share it with me, I can put out an e-mail with that information and put it on the web site.  As Veterans, it behooves us to honor those preceded us in service and those with whom we served.

Thanks, guys (and gals as applicable).

 

John

I got a note from Ralph McGlurg yesterday.  He asked me to post this to the website.  This will be of particular interest to those participating in the Veterans Day parade.

We are continuing to make changes to the web site.  Please be patient with us as we go through these, and as we try to keep our information up to date. It is, and will continue to be, a slow process.

One of my primary efforts is to make information available to you.  I will be linking to various informational sites that deal with Army aviation and with defense issues that come up. 

I plan to use this Home Page to say "Welcome to our site" and as things come up, to direct you to pertinent pages.

So, welcome in, and feel free to browse through.

Information on the 4th Quarter meeting is now posted on the "Meetings" page.

Vietnam POW's 40 years later

This is a great video of our military guys who were held in North Vietnam prisons.  I had never seen this before and I had no idea how these guys felt all these years about Nixon. 

Please share this magnificent video with your friends.

No matter how the media has assassinated President Nixon's character, the GIs still love him.watch this!
