This evening AIWA President William Buchanan opened the meeting at 7:05pm. There were lots of pepperoni pizza, mini crackers and soda pop. Attending were Juan del Rio, Ozzie Monge, Joaquin Sandoval, Heather Chalot and Roy Cook. Discussion on topical issues regarding veterans is a constant priority: PTSD and the various levels as recognized by the Veterans Administration, values clarification on personal, financial and professional behavior toward life goals and objectives.


Old Business:

1. Recruitment strategies continue to be of a high priority.

2. RC produced receipts and letter for cash advance to SE Vickie Gambala.
