Colors
parade float
Agent Orange Education
Happy Hookers

Our Color Guard is often asked to present colors at public events.

 

We now have a float for parades. We are very excited with the response from the public.

 

Our chapter is very involved with the issues of our exposure to Agent Orange and other toxins we were exposed to all around the world

 

 

Happy Hookers was started by some of our members as a way  to raise money for “Children of Agent Orange”. Money is raised by the sale of  fishing lures and other items . More on that on another page.
