Commander’s Highlights

I’ve asked many veterans about what they think is a commanders call. That has been pretty much a waste of time. So, I brought it up at the last AMVETS meeting. I have read manuals from the Navy, Airforce and Army with some definite suggestions of how it should be used. I’ve looked on Google to see what I could find out also. With all of this research and facts about commanders call. I presented it at the meeting for some direction on what I should do to ease my mind. First suggestion was to do whatever you want to even renaming it. Another plan was to call it commander’s message. I didn’t think much of that idea because I hear messages on Sunday mornings and you all know I’m no message giver. I have given some thought to commander’s digest, but then doing this just gives me indigestion. So I believe that is out. Then it comes down to what to include in this thing I’ve been doing for 1 1/2 years straining my brain. I’m also running out of true stories to include and would not want to resort to embellishment’s. With all that said I’m going to change to “COMMANDER’S “HIGHLIGHTS” and will include past and future goings on at our meetings plus other things which may include a story or two. The name change will stand for now.
Because of your support of AMVETS, the Post was able to contribute $500 to the Bremer Co. Veterans Affairs for needy veteran families.
There are still several who have not yet paid their 2021 dues. If you have not received your 2021
membership cards, we have not received payment. Please call Ron or Carl Benning ( 319 269 9541) about any discrepancy. Remember that a portion of the annual dues goes to support veterans and their families at the local, state, and national levels.
Since I’ve taken over the control of the house I live in, I’ve renamed my bathroom from the JOHN to the JIM. Now when people ask me what I’ve been doing with my time, I tell them I spend a lot of time in the JIM.
