For most of us, this summer has been busy, busy, busy! This issue of The Reveille contains
officer reports as always. I would like to direct you to the Chaplain’s Report. It contains a
moving story about a female 90-year old U.S. Army veteran. Thank you Chaplain Sunny.
Also, our always faithful Adjutant, Gene Grundstrom, has provided another Special Report on
Page 6 regarding debt forgiveness of Federally Insured Student Loans by the U.S. Government.
Nearly one-half of our total members do not have an email address so they are not receiving The
Reveille each month. Beginning this month, there will be paper copies on the table in the
Member’s Lounge. The Reveille is an excellent tool to demonstrate the attributes of our great
Post 419 and to recruit new members.
Best regards,
Mel Irvin, Publisher
