PRESIDENT'S MESSAGE - March 2024

        I hope you all had wonderful holidays. Spring will be here be- fore we know it. Thank you to all who attended the December Luncheon. It was wonderful to meet COL Freeman, the WBAMC Commander, and his wife (also an active duty Colonel) and to receive an update on our Medical Treatment Facility. Your Board of Directors works hard to schedule speakers that we believe will bring value to our members. Please send me your suggestions for future speak- ers. Our move to the Fort Bliss Centennial Club seems to have been well received by our meeting attendees. If you have any suggestions for other venues, please send them along.

Our March Luncheon will mainly be devoted to celebrating the 100th birthday of MG (Ret) Ed Greer. MG Greer has been a stalwart leader in our community for many decades. A long time El Paso MOAA Chapter member, he was President of the Fort Bliss Retiree Council and presided over the Fort Bliss Retiree Activities Day for many years. We are so blessed that after his lengthy and distinguished military career, MG Greer and his late wife, Jewel, chose to make El Paso their home. We hope you will join us in celebrating this milestone birthday of a great American.
