if you must, for all to share!
Guests: Barbara Pepi, VA Minority Veterans Program Coordinator did a
site visit to the AIWA organization and distributed relevant information
regarding Veterans rights. There was a short question and answer session
on death benefits and what might be due spouses, etc.
At the conclusion, she excused herself and the assembled group sorted
out the possibilities of the evening. Most reports were tabled until
such time the AIWA officer situation is redefined.
Roy Cook took charge and chaired the ad hoc meeting. He stated that
what could be done is to document points of view in a round robin format:
1. Event coordinator, Ronnie Murphy brought up the Massing of the colors
and asked members commitment to participate in the Color Guard.
Also, he is glad to be here tonight. He is having problems with left
over shrapnel in his stomach.
2. Edward Tisnedo asked if we had a youth or Auxiliary support for the
AIWA organization. He also asked about the dues and the AIWA by-laws.
3. Juan del Rio, new member, said he had an extensive history in Chicano
affairs and is a veteran of the USMC Reserve. He is an urban planner
and is currently offering assistance in mortgage foreclosures.
4. Lyle Edie Martinez, US Army Vietnam, said we need core leadership
and he wants to participate in the Veterans Day Parade.
5. Joaquin Sandoval, elected Sgt-at-Arms, said California Coast is our
bank and he is the only signatory. He continues to unravel the IRS issue
and they still have questions.
Motion to adjourn: 8:25pm by Ronnie Murphy- seconded by Lyle Martinez.
