From the Commander
We have some work to take care of during this Tuesday’s meeting! We will beginour Wreaths Across America campaign very early this year by requesting localbusinesses to sponsor wreaths through a mass mailing. The letters are printedand folded, so all we need to do is stuff envelopes and affix mailing labels andstamps – roughly 1600 of them. Hopefully, by getting an early start and adifferent strategy we’ll be able to place wreaths on all veterans’ graves at the Cityof Lubbock Cemetery. Thanks to Lee Little Soldier and Robert Johnson for alltheir work on the letter, and to the rest of the staff for proof reading the letter.The business addresses are from the Lubbock Chamber of Commerce Directoryand the city’s list of top 100 businesses.The Texas Wing Conference will be here sooner than you expect. Registrationforms are due to me this Tuesday so that the squadron can pay the fee.Upcoming activities in May include a Search and Rescue Evaluation (SAREVAL)and a visit to the WASP Museum in Sweetwater.I would like for each of you who are ES qualified or a trainee to review the ESregulation CAPR 60- 3 to refresh your memory. Also, check your gear to ensureyou are ready to deploy. There has been an increase in activity in Group 1 thisyear with missions near Amarillo, San Angelo, Presidio, Ft Stockton, and, ofcourse, here in Lubbock. This may not be indicative of a trend, but we shouldalways be prepared.
