Last month, I asked for your prayers and assistance in helping those who needed it in the aftermath of Hurricane Florence which was about to make landfall along the east coast. Little did I know that we would have a much more devastating storm, Hurricane Michael, which hit the Florida panhandle just a few weeks later!. Please continue your prayers for and assistance to those affected by both catastrophes.
Mideast Division Vice President Pat Walker informed me that the Onslow County Unit in Jacksonville, North Carolina is assisting their detachment with providing needed items for Marine families in that area. If you or your unit would like to make a monetary donation to help them, please send your checks payable to Onslow County Marine Corps League to: Onslow County Detachment 262 Commandant Leroy Walker, DAV Hall, 300 Sherwood Rd., Jacksonville, NC 28540. Write “Humanitarian Fund” on the memo line. If I receive information on assisting a unit or detachment in the affected Florida area, I will pass that information along.
There will be many celebrations for our Marines. But this is also a time for us to reach out to our sisters whose Marines are only in their memories. They used to celebrate the Marine Corps Birthday with their husband, wife, father, mother, son or daughter but can no longer have this time with them. We can extend that hand of friendship or that evening of camaraderie.
Perhaps this is a good time to review your membership list and touch base those who have not attended a meeting in a while, or those whose memberships have lapsed.
