PRESIDENT'S MESSAGE - August 2022
I hope everyone had a fantastic 4th of July and IndependenceDay! By the time you read this we should be through the hottest months of summer and getting ready for the 13 August lunch and the next time we meet after that will be in the fall for our October lunch! So only a few more months of crazy hot weather and fall will be here before you know it.
Not much to report in these dog days of summer. As far as Fort Bliss goes, we will welcome a new Commanding General (CG) named Major General Eisenhower. The change of command between him and the current CG Major General Sean Bernabe is scheduled for July 13th. With COVID behind us and a new command team at Ft Bliss I am hoping that MOAA can gain some traction on post this fall. Time will tell. Perhaps we can get the new CG to talk at one of our lunches!
