the State Capitol will be January 18, 2017 from 9 a.m. – 12 noon.
Please be there around 8:30 a.m. at the Rotunda. Start getting your
people together to come to the State Capitol on that day to talk with
your Representative concerning veteran’s issues. The more veterans
we have at the State Capitol on that day, the better chance we have
on getting things passed for veterans. We encourage members from
all Posts to participate.
