PRESIDENT'S MESSAGE: May - August 2024

        Summer is finally upon us! A time for weddings, graduations, PCS moves, Reserve duty, etc. I hope you will be able to join us at our 8 June Luncheon where the speaker will be Dr. Carolyn Garcia, a Nurse Practitioner with the El Paso VA.

I also hope you can join the Memorial Day Ceremony at the Fort Bliss Cemetery on 27 May at 9am. I and some other MOAA members along with many individuals and community organizations will be at the Cemetery on 25 May placing flags on each of the thousands of graves. Help is always needed after Memorial Day to retrieve the flags if you are able to do so please do.

Thanks to your donations to our Outreach Foundation (501c3), we were able to support the El Paso VA’s Baby Shower and VA2k Walk and Roll which assists homeless Veterans. We also routinely bolster the Veteran Court Program which helps Veteran and active service par- ticipants divert from the traditional criminal justice system and provides them rehabilitation through comprehensive substance abuse and/or mental health treatment, education, vocation- al programs and community resource referrals for housing, childcare, and transportation all while being judicially monitored. Please keep those contributions coming. We put them to good use to help our military community.
