Post 2013 reunion - closing dinner

Reginald Owens

From: The President

To: The Members of The ANGLICO Association and loved Ones

At this time of the year, when the fall season brings a plethora of color throughout our nation, we turn our thoughts to our biennial reunion. A place and time dedicated for people who have not seen each other for some time, to come together and socialize, share common threads, break bread, compare medications, and return safely to our home - hoping that at the next reunion, we’ll see that long, missing buddy.

In the space of two years, our government has continued to be a world leader as the center-pin of an international economy, destroyer of forces that do evil for the sake of evil and at home, issue promises to grow the economy by creating more jobs and strengthening the middle class. On the world scene, the US military is a force to be reckoned with and make us proud, - always mission ready and achieving remarkable results when engaged.

The domestic front is littered with congressional chaos on both sides of the aisle. They can take a leaf from the military playbook on “working as a team”, in a bipartisan manner, becoming camaraderie, in a shoulder-to-shoulder effort, to forever end sequestration and settle the debt-ceiling question, (both issues weaken our worldly might and is simply not fair to veterans and their families.)

Meanwhile as veterans, our duty is to stand strong in our communities, take the initiative in providing leadership where there is none and implement measures that seek to cultivate a just society. Let us tell our stories while moving toward the incredibly challenging years ahead – let us step forward with compassion and tolerance, leadership, impartiality, fairness, equality and most of all integrity.

When the going gets tough – take refuge in these words from ‘Still I Rise’, M. Angelou:

You may shoot me with your words,
You may cut me with your eyes,
You may kill me with your hatefulness,
But still, like air, I’ll rise.
