The Group will have a chairman, secretary and treasurer.
The Group will maintain a Checking account and a summary report will be given at each meeting.
The Group will meet on the 1st Monday of the Month in the main room of the Activity Center at 7:00 pm.
Dues will be initially $20 to pay for a cap, labels and badges. There will be $5 annual dues.
Uniforms will only be worn at official events.
SPECIAL NOTE: Our Veterans Club has recently reorganized and is meeting on the first Monday of the month at the Activity Center at 7PM. All veterans are welcome and encouraged to attend.
MAKE YOUR BED by William H. McRaven is another good read. Admiral McRaven was a Navy SEAL and was Commander of USSOCOM at MacDill AFB prior to his retirement in 2014. He is now the Chancellor at University of Texas where he gave the commencement speech in 2014. You can listen to the speech at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pxBQLFLei70.
THE DISABLED VETERAN'S STORY by Miguel Reece, USAF, MSC Retired is another book you should read. He will present a workshop here on August 3 at the Activity Center. This event is sponsored by the Ladies Auxiliary to the Veterans Club.
All of the books are available at Amazon, and THE SANDAL is also available at the Strawberry Ridge Lending Library.

You may have earned college credit for military service.
Use Navy Benefits to Pay
for a Degree
Attention Navy Veteran,
Credit for service and the GI Bill can make it faster and more affordable to earn a degree. Start using military benefits by finding schools with VA-approved programs.
1. Eliminate Classes with ACE and CLEP®: some schools offer credit for service and you can test out of some classes
2. GI Bill Pays Up to $52,500: includes stipends for books and housing
These benefits can be used towards an Associate's, Bachelor's or Professional Certificate.
