Highlights from our December 2018, Chapter Newsletter
Fall Meeting and Museum Tour
The Delaware Chapter hosted a meeting followed by a tour of display aircraft at the Air Mobility Command Museum at Dover Air Force Base on October 27, 2018.
Attendees received information from the AUSA National Meeting in D.C., planned Chapter activities for 2019, and the Civilian Aide to the Secretary of the Army, BG (Ret) Terry Wiley spoke on the Army’s challenges with recruiting, force structure, and modernization.
Chapter activities this year include strengthening our support for ROTC and the 5 Army JROTC programs, a Spring meeting, the 8th Annual Enlistee Recognition Dinner, and our 2nd Annual Golf Scramble. Also, we may conduct a work day to assist in the completion of the ‘Warriors Helping Warriors’ facility in Middletown.
We are hoping to add a few new members to the Executive Council, so let me know if you can share some of your time for one of our events.
Look for the flyer that announces the next Chapter meeting in the Spring.
2019 “Our Community Salutes” Enlistee Recognition Dinner
Planning is underway for our 8th Annual Enlistee Recognition Dinner.
In 2012, the Chapter started a program entitled Our Community Salutes (OCS), part of a nationwide effort to recognize and celebrate those high school seniors who have chosen to join one of the military services after graduation. We were able to partner with sponsors to conduct an Enlistee Recognition Dinner, for the new enlistees in Delaware. All services are included.
Attendees and their families are invited to hear praise and congratulatory remarks from military and civilian speakers. Service organizations and sponsors are on hand to provide information on their products and services.
Many thanks to Summit Aviation in Middletown, one of our corporate members, for being our main sponsor each year!
