Department Commander's Comments

Greetings, from the Commander’s desk,


First, I would like to wish everyone a Happy Veterans Day.  Second, I want to thank the members of the Disabled American Veterans and the Disabled American Veterans Auxiliary for working the Golden Corral fundraiser and for your participation in the DAV5K run; however, not just for those events but all the things that you do for our veterans. Your continued efforts enable the DAV/DAV Auxiliary to increase its visibility and public awareness, and also increase revenue in the Chapter/Unit treasuries; which will enable us to enhance the quality of our veterans’ lives.  Also, thank you all for helping to make our Fall Conference a BIG SUCCESS.
It’s beginning to feel a lot like winter and that means the Holiday Season is upon us.  I am wishing everyone has a really great Thanksgiving Day!  We all have so much to be thankful for. I also would like to remind you that there are disabled veterans and their families in the State of Georgia who may not be as fortunate as we are. I ask that you reach out to those veterans that may be in your community, Veteran Administration Medical Centers, the Veterans Nursing Homes, or area Nursing Homes to let them know that they are not forgotten.
As a reminder, the deadline for your Financial Report has come and gone. If you have not submitted your report to the Department, expect to receive a notice with directions from us; so, please get it in ASAP.  Additionally, remember to check your paper work to see when you need to file your 990N; we want all our Chapters to continue to help our disabled veterans in their community. Plus, be proud to be a DAV MEMBER. It’s not the price we pay to be a member; it is the price we paid to be eligible. One more thing, the Department now has service officers. The service officers are at the Department (4462 Houston Avenue, Macon Ga.) Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays between the hours of: 9am-2pm. Please help us get the word out.

Upcoming events:
Golden Corral fundraiser
District Meeting in Hinesville, GA, November 4, 2017

We have entered into the Holiday Season, sharing Thanksgiving and Christmas dinner, decorating the house and tree, going on shopping trips, and baking for the many get-togethers with family and friends. I would like to leave this message with you: drive safely, be aware of your surroundings, and be very carefully in deep frying that turkey, chicken or ham. In other words be careful, we want to see you safe and sound in 2018.
