Comrades,

I am pleased to accept the position of Commander of our Post for 2013-2014.  I hope to
lead Post 3925 to another successful year as Past Commanders have done.

When you see Past Commander Mike Santure thank him for his Expert Leadership and
Knowledge of the Post. His Skills and Dedication made last year a very successful and
pleasant year. After 4 years as Commander he will be a HARD ACT TO FOLLOW.

We did have a change of officers at our last meeting.  Comrades Mike Grodi and Terry
Rollins resigned as Chaplain and Senior Vice Commander respectively. Our new Chaplain is
Chris Stark, Senior Vice Commander Jim Cherry and Junior Vice Commander Richard
Brazeau.

The State Convention  was June 7 and 8 at Troy, Michigan. Mike Santure, Terry Rollins, Jim
Cherry, Ed Simpson,Tom Merce and I attended. It was interesting to witness the election
process and to meet some of the new District Officers.

On May 10, 2013 I was invited to and attended a Veterans Fair at Monroe Post 1138. The
purpose of the Fair was to provide Veterans information and access to organization that
can assist with Educational Opportunities, Job Searches and Disabled Veterans. Please
help yourself to the literature, on the small table, in the Kennedy Room for yourself or for a
Vet returning home.

One of the duties Mike Santure did so well was to post messages on the outside marques, I
plan to continue to do the same. So if you know a Service man or woman who is either
going to or coming back from an overseas assignment or have a message that needs to be
posted, leave me a message on my home phone 734-242-8045.

Looking forward to seeing you at our next meeting July 3, 2013
