  Message from the National President:

Mid-Winter Conference will be held 
Virtually in cooperation with

the Marine Corps League


This change is due to the COVID-19 restriction in the state of Virginia.


The Auxiliary Staff Conference will remain on the same dates with an adjusted 

schedule. The schedule will be sent out by email and posted on the Website. We

should have the Schedule by the 15th of February.


The hotel will cancel all reservations related to the event. Refunds for the registration,

banquet and ads will be handled by the National League Headquarters Office. 
Please be patient!


Greeting and Happy Valentine's Day!

May all of you be blessed with love, flowers and chocolate!


This month of showing our love seems like a perfect time to discuss a somewhat

sensitive topic. Heavy on my heart are the personality problems that crop up in all 

organizations, but especially when it comes to our beloved Marine Corps League
Auxiliary. This is a troublesome issue that affect many of our units and 

departments across the country.


Each and every member has value and should be treated with kindness and respect.
Personality issues have not place in the Auxiliary! Set aside those personal likes and

dislikes and focus on the true reason we exist. We need to extent the hand of 

friendship to all members. Our goals in the Auxiliary are to assist our Marines, 

Veterans, Community, and Family. Our fellow members are our Auxiliary Family. Let

us all remember to encourage each and every member to do her best and praise

that effort.


Please remember that there are many ways of doing things to accomplish a task. We

all have different talents, some strong and some weak, but together we become solid

as we embrace ideas that are new or different from ours. Helen Keller stated, "Alone 

we can do so little, together we can do so much!"


Our mission is to mentor other members to stretch their wings and become the leaders, 

passing on all knowledge so that they have all the tools to be successful. If we do this

right, they will take our knowledge, add their ideas, and become dedicated members

focusing on our goals and objectives. Please, please put aside differences and recognize

all members as team players and remember that "Success is built on the dreams of 

those who seek to serve other!"


A final important note... the second week of February is traditionally National Salute to 

Veteran Patients for VA Hospitals across the nation. This year it is February 15th - 20th

Please check with your VA and see if there is anything you can do to assist. Due to our 

social distancing rules, opportunities are limited. We have many members who volunteer

at the VA Hospitals and Clinics. Thank you for what you do all year long.

 

Semper Fidelis,

 

President Evelyn Joppa
