Thank you for allowing me to be your new National Commander of the National Heroes of ’76. I will be making numerous trips this ensuing year to all the C&Es if possible. I will also visit various Camps that may need help, or have not been visited in recent years.
My theme for this year is “Enlighten your Camp; Utilize the new Manual for Heroes of ’76”. This new manual has all of the in’s and out’s of running a successful Camp. It should be used at all times. Learn the Land Marks. Every Hero should know the “Toast to the Flag” and be able to give it at visitations and at Heroes meetings.
I ask that all the Heroes Camps that wish for me to visit, please send me an e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org containing time and place. I already have nine visits on my calendar, so let me know soon. I have always had an open door policy. Use it if needed.
