Letter from the President - January 2022

Happy 2022 to our Redstone-Huntsville Chapter Members, Community Partners, National Partners and Team Redstone followers! I hope you all had an enjoyable holiday season. We hosted a very well attended holiday gathering at the Von Braun Center in December where we recognized the category winners from the 2021 Veterans Day Parade. There was also a toast to those lost and the survivors of the attack on Pearl Harbor. It has been 80 years since that infamous day in our nation’s history.

Letter from Our President

This past year has been challenging for our chapter and other organizations as we navigate through the COVID-19 obstacles and roadblocks placed along our path. However, we have come up with new and creative ways to meet our chapter’s goals and mission as a result. We have continued to support the caregivers and veterans at Tut Fann Veterans Home with pizza dinners and enhancing their technology and family communication needs with new iPads. We have also started a new high school student transitioning to college scholarship program.
