PRESIDENT’S COMMENTS: As we enter August, I do feel that ourpositive approach to recruiting and in general just letting people know that weare not only one of the many trying to collect monies for our use on varioussundry items. But instead a group of former service people, whether we arespouses of or the prior service member. We all have certain valuableexpressions of our service for our country: By utilizing our members ratherthan relying on our Officers who try to give a canned response towardRecruiting. You the members can give your personal touch, which willprovide more honest feelings. Remember you are TREA Chapter-16. WEARE DIFFERENT, AND ONLY YOU CAN EXPRESS THAT FEELING. Iam very proud of you all. Your President - Richard (Dick) Trow

COMMISSARY AND EXCHANGE MAY OPEN TO DISABLED VETS:The final version of the 2019 Defense Authorization Act (2019 NDAA) would allow disabled veterans, Purple Heart recipients, and caregivers of veterans severely injured in war to shop on military bases, paying slightly more at checkout than current patrons. They also will be able to use base recreational facilities. Read this week's Military Update to learn more about the 2019 NDAA.
