Dear Comrade,

After returning today from the National Convention in Orlando the only thing I can say is, WOW amazing. Highly recommended that you attend a  National convention, as well as our department convention a great way to network.

• VA Sec. Wilkie spoke at the convention and promised that they would start BLUE WATER NAVY claims 1 January. We suggest that veterans  file claims or at least contact our service office on Taylor street just make sure to advise all veterans to use a VSO.
• With that said our district meeting is coming up next month 25 August, great way to start our 1st quarter by attending and getting your post on the road to All State or All American status.
• Please review our 4th district roster for errors and get back to me this is a proof download PDF file. One post needs to get us all their officers. If you see corrections please e-mail me the errors. We shall be going to press in a week.   
• Next up in September is our 2019 VFW Illinois Service Officer Seminar. Have your Post SO attend and get up to date information that can help your post members, veterans and their families. Date is Saturday 14 September Holiday Inn East Peoria. Your post should have the registration form. If not please feel free to contact  myself or our VSO office on Taylor Street. Poppy funds can be used for this purpose. Send anyone else interested in helping veterans as well.Your post SO is the key to reaching out to the community!
