  1. This is an outstanding agenda of relevant issues for veterans. My brother, Stephen, and I plan to attend as much of it as we can.
  2. It is chock full of informative sessions. I am looking forward to seeing you and your brother there.
  3. What about Post Service Officers training? Can the Legion provide actual classroom training for each District and invite all the Post Service officers? I mean that is where some of the action is, Post Level. We need more trained Post Service Officers in the Legion so they know the fundamentals of helping our Veterans fill out paperwork and sending it up to the DSO's. It would be a big help to our Post Service Officers. Thanks
