2 COMMANDER FM].IKE. COHEE Jr, I THEN & NOW. To My Friends and Fellow Veterans: I am a little disappointed that more of you didn't show up for the Govemo/s Veterans Service Award event that was held at the Lakeland National Guard Armory on August 14,2014. At first I was blaming myself for not getting the word out but then I remembered that I had asked Walt to get it in the newsletter and he did. As Walt commented at the most recent meeting, apparently many of you are not reading the newsletter. He gave an example of the statement under the crossword puzzle that said that the first person from Chapter 158 that calls phone # and says the word "KIMCHl'would win a prize at the meeting. Nobody called, including me, and I do read the newsletter. Anyhow you missed being presented with very a nice medallion for your collection. lt was presented by the Govemor Of the State of Florida. Chapter 158 was represented by yours truly, First Vice President McCraney, News Letter Editor Walt Benton and member Don Duncan, four out of 23-not a very good showing. I want to welcome Amos Denham as our newest member sponsored by Walt Benton. Walt also brought a potential new member at our most recent member, Captain Robert (Bob) Bishop. Bob is a retired Law Enforcement District Commander. We hope he willjoin us. Lastly, I want to thank Walt for what he is doing for Ghapter 158. Not only is he bringing in new members but there are 11ads in the news letter. That is $ income. My guess is that every one oi ithose ads was obtained by Walt.
