No One Does More For Veterans
As yesterday's defenders of freedom, we want to welcome today's military service members into our ranks to become part of our elite group.  Our common bond is the battlefield, whether it is service in the Persian Gulf, Korea, Kosovo, the war on terrorism or peace-keeping expeditionary campaigns. Your courage and sacrifice have made a difference in preserving and defending world peace.

Commander's Corner

Commander Charles Williams

Department of Missouri has partnered with a company called PCI and their theme is "Share Your Story" to give veterans a chance to share their military experience. After researching and talking with other states who have participated PCI was proven to be legitimate and they have received the money promised by the company who have been doing this for years. You will receive a postcard in the mail showing our address at headquarters, then in a bold box stating "Important: Verification of member data now needed," and your name and address below it. This is a very good partnership because this will reach all members of the department, and will get the most accurate information for us "Free!" on our members. This project is strictly volunteer to participate in and from looking at the sample books provided to us from the company there were some pretty interesting stories in the states they provided examples of, our book will be exclusive of Missouri veterans stories only. I will participate because it will give an account of the things that I've done in my 20 years, 1 day and 5 hours of service. IT IS NOT A SCAM MO FAMILY. Any questions call Don at HQ or myself thank you.
