Hey Buddy, Did Ya Hear This
Jonathan Stevens, WWII HRS Vice President
s ever there has been a lot goingon in the WWIIHRS.The latest bylaw vote wascompleted after a long process. Fourchanges were on the ballot. The firstchange was for Article III, Section 2,paragraph 4, which describes theparticipation of minors under the age of16 in Living History and static displays.The proposal was to remove the phrase“…and non-political in nature.” The votewas 35 members in favor and 28members against. This by-law changepassed.The second change reconfiguredthe charter requirements for units underArticle IV, Section 2. The vote was 26members for the change and 37members against. This by-law changefailed.The third by-law change affectedarticle IV section 3 which stated thatindividual non-HRS units would need toseek a sponsor who would be heldaccountable for any actions of the non-HRS units. The vote was 28 membersfor this change and 35 members againstthe change. This by-law change failed.The final by-law changestipulated a change in national flagdisplays and removal of the ban onHitler Youth uniforms found in ArticleXIII, Sections 15 to18. The vote was 31members for this change and 32members against this change. The by-law proposal narrowly failed.Late April saw a suddenresignation of the Edge editor, TroyLaFaye. Due to his graduate schoolcommitments and work he felt heneeded to step back from the Edge. Ido hope this is only a hiatus until hisdegree is completed since the Edge hadseen some significant improvementswith Troy and the rest of the 167
SignalPhoto Company on the job. So, if youhave a desire to head the mouthpiece ofthe WWII HRS please send the boardan email. Some experience with layoutand design with a knack for writingwould be necessary for the editor. This job is significant and would most likelyrequire several people working togetherto complete a quality publication. Wewould like a one-year commitment.As a reminder regarding the“Regional Events” the WWII HRS willgrant limited funding to four events eachyear to help with a certain portion of theevent. Some restrictions do applythough. Submit a proposal to the boardif your event is interested in hosting aRegional Event that includes detailedevent information and exactly how thegrant will be used. One unit in Ohio isinterested in hosting a “Regional Event”so stay tuned.If your unit commander is notpart of the Unit Commander’sCommittee please have them send mean email to join. We have 70 unitcommanders currently on the committeebut we are still missing a few. If yourunit commander does not have acomputer a designated unitrepresentative can join the committee.The committee is designed to increasecommunication among the WWII HRSunits and also as a way to quicklydisseminate information to the memberunits.At a recent event one unitcommander suggested we have a yearlyby-law review to look for outdated orincorrect wording, identify areas thatneed clarification, and propose someremedies for the deficiencies. This is anexcellent proposal and follows whatmany non-for-profit organizationsundertake each year. Notification wassent out to the Unit Commander’sCommittee for volunteers and a numberresponded. Two or three more
