PRESIDENT'S MESSAGE - March/April 2020

            Good afternoon team! HOW ABOUT THEM CHIEFS!! (and the halftime show!) It’s another evening when I sit down and write my monthly letter from the president so here it is. I am still getting used to this duty but I have not been sitting on my rear for the past couple of months, I’ve actually been doing some research (no kidding)! I have been amazed to find a couple of really great systems out there that we can use. The first is our own El Paso MOAA website put together by our own Bill Moore. Our Website is truly first class and you can find a wealth of information there. I have always been amazed by our information technology folks and for an Infantry guy like Bill to design and run our site truly staggers my imagination, so thanks Bill for keeping us and the website straight. The other thing I was doing was checking out the MOAA national website and figuring out what exactly MOAA does for us. I was pleasantly surprised to find the answer is… a ton of stuff! I wanted to keep you abreast of all the legislative initiatives that MOAA national is working on this year. Reading through the MOAA legislative agenda and objectives for the current year I could not find any problems with it. However, if you do have some issues perhaps we can discuss them at our next meeting or even better figure out how we can add supporting fires to those initiatives we find worthwhile. Read More
