Jan/Feb 2017 – DAV Auxiliary Adjutant’s Article

Happy New Year 2017 

May each of you be favored with good health, joy, love, peace and prosperity during the coming year and always!

 “Although no one can go back and make a brand new start, anyone can start from now and make a brand new ending.” – Carl Bard


On behalf of Commander Lee and State VAVS Chairperson Pat Owens, thanks to the Chapters and Units that participated in the Annual VAVS Christmas program for our hospitalized veterans. This year our combined donations of $4755.00, allowed us to increase donation to nine different VA Medical Centers. Without the generosity of each of you, this support of our hospitalized veterans would not have been possible.

Attention Adjutants:

Once elections and installations have been completed, please remember to send a copy of your report listing the unit’s officers to DAVA National Headquarters, DAV Department of Texas and State DAVA Headquarters. Additionally, a copy of financial reports must also be forwarded. It is EXTREMELY IMPORTANT that the reports are completed and received by each of the Headquarters in a timely manner.

Thank you for all your hard work. Your efforts are greatly appreciated!

Remember our State School of Instruction is January 13-15, 2017 at the Omni Corpus Christi Hotel, Corpus Christi, Texas. Hope to see you there!


Darlene Spence, Adjutant/Treasurer DAV Auxiliary State Department of Texas
