Update from Our President

Thursday, July 16, 2020

Dear Brothers and Sisters,

I just wanted to give you an update on my current situation. I am still staying at The Loft Rehab and Nursing center in Canton Illinois. I am scheduled for another Surgery on Friday July 17 th . The hardware holding my leg together has caused an infection, so they must go in and clean it out again. Lord willing this will be the last time for this particular procedure.

Please be assured that my Team and I are continuing to work on your behalf. Please do not hesitate to contact any of us with your questions, concerns and great ideas on how we can continue to work to promote our programs.

A gentle reminder to our District and Auxiliary Treasurers, please complete your Bonds and 990’s as soon as possible, this is part of our Circle of Excellence criteria. If you have any questions regarding either of these please contact Linda Lorenz Department Treasurer for assistance. I also want to remind all District Presidents to turn in your District meeting dates and locations and any special activities/events that you may want Department Representation to attend so we may complete our Master schedule of events for this year.

Please know that I am doing everything in my power to become mobile as soon as possible so I can physically be with you all. But, until that time occurs, I want to encourage you all to continue to use Zoom or teleconferencing for your meetings as much as possible so I can at least see and hear all the great things you are doing to support our Veterans, their families and your communities.

Thank you for being part of the “Making Life Bearable for Our Veterans” year.


God Bless you all

Linda Armstrong
