Chairman, Doug Stephenson
Last Night I was honored to be elected as the new Chairman of the Sgt Alvin C York Chapter of the 82nd Airborne Divison Association. I consider it a privilege to serve the chapter and ask for your support and your prayers as we move forward into the new year 2013. We need everyone to work together to help build a viable and vibrant airborne veteran's organization for the Chattanooga area. I am asking each member to become a personal recruiter of new members. TEAM means: Together Each Achieves More! IF we work together as a TEAM, we will be able to accomplish so much more than we ever could as individual members. Please plan to attend our upcoming installation of new officers and our newly re-activated chapter ceremony. This historic event needs to be recorded for posterity sake. We plan to take a group photograph of our newly re-charted chapter. We ask that each member wear the dress uniform as modeled in the photograph of myself shown above. IF you do not have this uniform, please wear something as close to it as possible. Please feel free to contact me at any time, with any concerns you may have about our chapter. God bless and have a Happy Thanksgiving with your family and friends.
