“Keeping your Athletes Safe, from Ground, Water and Space”

As our nation is at odds, we still continue to support and protect this great nation. I will not support or en-gage in events and programs that do not support or respect our Military and Veterans. They have made many sacrifices in order to guard our country from terrorists. As you prepare and train for the final Olym-pics in July we take more precautions to keep the games safe so you can complete your duties for the gold of veterans.

Be asking your division managers and district trainers for a copy of the packet on ideas in the action plan for 2017-22. Please visit National Security for the awards as a reminder to help you plan some great events for the Military and Veterans. I know you will all do a fantastic job of planning activities.
