“Joe” Voge, USA, (Ret)
Once again, KOS has won the MOAA 5 Star Level of Excellence
Award. The award ceremony for this year will be held in Kansas City, MO on
October 27 and 28th. Thanks to Lt. Col. Carol Walker for submitting
the paperwork to MOAA National.
A grant for up to $50,000 has been approved for our “Stuff
the Bus” endeavor. COL Craig Ham will receive the award on Thursday, 11 August,
at the Veterans Service Office with some of the County Commissioners and other
dignitaries in attendance.
Reflecting our nation's current economy, many local restaurants
have raised their prices, among them The Braised Onion. A possible meal price
increase will be discussed by the board at the August meeting.
COL Ham has proposed the development of a new KOS logo. You can see the logo on the upper right of
this newsletter. While it has served us
in the past, it may need design improvement. If you have an artistic background or at least a new idea for the
design, please make it known to COL Ham.
COL Nick Navetta has arranged to have a representative from
the Army Chemical Corps speak at our September luncheon. I
am curious to hear about the changes in the Chemical Corps. In October we will have Dennis Rose as our guest speaker.
Our luncheon is on
September 1st and I hope to see you all there.
