Happy New Year! I hope everyone resolves to continue to serve our Marines and their families with renewed fervor and enthusiasm during 2019. There is so much that we can do to improve the lives of those who are currently serving and have served our country and continue to do so. Read on for a perfect example of helping our Marines.
During our National Convention in August, we were notified that a disabled Marine had been transferred by ambulance from the James H. Quillen VA Medical Center in Johnson City, TN to the Manteno Veterans’ Home in Manteno, IL. Due to limited space in the ambulance, her new power wheelchair and most of her clothing items were left behind
Marine Corps League COO Bob Borka has asked me to share with you that there is a revised Registration Form for the Mid-Winter Conference which includes banquet meal choices: Chicken Champagne, Petite Filet Mignon, or a Vegan Alternative: Vegan or Vegetarian Tower. It is posted on the Marine Corps League website and in this newsletter. If you have already submitted your registration form, please send an email to Info@mcleague.org with your meal selection. If you are using an original registration form, please write in your meal choices. Also, all departments and units please submit an ad for the Mid-Winter Program Book. The deadline for registration and ads is February 8.

Oh my, another year has begun. It is time to cultivate new and old friendships. Come on, you know the song by Robert Burns:
Should old acquaintance be forgot, and never brought to mind?
Should old acquaintance be forgot, and old lang syne?
What do the words mean to you? To me it means a toast to days gone by. Perfect for when we are remembering old friends and greeting new ones. Speaking of greeting new friends, this winter is a good time to snuggle under a blanket with your friend, and mine - your Unit, Department and National Bylaws and Administrative Procedures! Oh, yes. A snowy winter day is the perfect time to read and understand those Bylaws. What, you may ask, can I do if I don’t understand the Bylaws? Then you turn to your Unit, Department or National Judge Advocate. We are all here to help you navigate through the pages of information.
We have changed office hours:
Monday through Thursday
9am – 3pm
