Veterans Affairs Chairman – David ColtonThe veterans of our Order are a key membership that bring many attributes that are synonymous with their military training. The question your council must ask, Is your council veteran friendly? Do you actively recruit veterans and mentor them as they join your councils? When confronted with the opportunity to invite the veterans of your parish, some of the key attributes that come with these Catholic men are, team oriented, sense of duty, strict organizational skills through a disciplined ethic, initiate and follow through on activities, all enhanced by their cross-functional skills.
Two programs that recognize our veterans, are Veteran’s Day and Memorial Day. During the holiday season The Wreath’s Across America is a key program to honor our fallen veterans.
Please Remember our veterans, Honor those who serve and Teach our next generations the value of Freedom.
