Executive Director, Delta Gamma Fraternity PRESIDENT'S CORNER We continue to focus on increasing our membership because this allows us to have more influence on military related legislation and Washington and Columbus. We are In the final stages of the 2013 chapter membership renewal process and encourage everyone to stay with us as we Take Care of the Troops. There are some changes in membership policies and processes. Please read the article by LTC Joe Machado, VP Officer Membership, for details. We all need to be recruiters for the Chapter and MOAA, and all need to be singing the same song. SAVE THE DATE!!

The featured speaker will be Dr. Ronald Sega, MG (USAF Retired), Vice President and Enterprise Executive for Energy and the Environment, Ohio State University. Pencil the convention in on your calendar more details to follow. Pete Pete Wilkinson Colonel USAF (Retired) President, MOAA Central Ohio Chapter ADOPT A SERVICE MEMBER Coleen was the first woman to attain the position of Provost Marshal General of the Army and the first woman to command the US Disciplinary Barracks at Fort Leavenworth. BG McGuire also did a tour in Iraq as the Commander of NATO's Multi-National police forces. She is a member of MOAA. Colleen has been Exec Dir since last August and has implemented a program (blessed by DoD) to assist veterans who have been blinded or suffered visual disabilities. Social at 11:30 AM, Meeting at NOON. Send check & reservation slip to: COL Tom Farrell, USA (Ret.) 1575 Northcrest Ave Columbus, OH by Monday, June 10, SGT Robert Kula, who is deployed to Afghanistan, was the recipient of our latest box. I received his name from Angela Dyer who is the Family Assistance Coordinator for the Ohio National Guard at Beightler Armory. There are women attached to this particular group, so another box will go out this week specifically for female service members. I will really enjoy getting this box together. Your assistance is requested in obtaining names of deployed men and women. The service personnel do not necessarily have to be from Ohio. We are our brother s keeper, and hometown does not matter. I cannot describe the look of joy in the eyes of a parent or relative when they hand me a paper with a loved- one s address on it. A stranger is reaching out to their deployed service person, and they are so grateful. Let s all work together to remember our finest! Dorothy Williams, or
