Greetings Veterans and Fellow Patriots:

Our own Brad Hemmert had a tragedy in his family recently. If you haven’t heard, William Crnkovich was in a tragic work accident that cost him his life. Chad Sturges served with him in the Army and we have been requested to escort the family from Thayne to Soda Springs on Saturday, June 29th. We are in the process of coordinating times and meeting place, so if you are interested in riding this Saturday, please call or text me so I can make sure you get the information. I know it’s short notice, but let’s do our best to show our support. I wanted to get the word out even before we had all the details so you could mark Saturday for this event.

On a happier note, our 24th Annual POW*MIA Awareness Rally and Motorcycle Rodeo is right around the corner and we are still looking for vendors. The Awareness Rally website has the pay button ready to go and I would love to fill the grass up!  Cami has included the Rally poster for distribution so feel free to print it and display it! We will meet the Friday, July 26 at noon at the storage shed to load up equipment and supplies in the trailers to take to the Fairgrounds. We are always looking for help with the Rally set up.

Nicki, Rudy, JoJo and Joe will be headed to Washington DC for the National League of POW/MIA Families 53rd Annual Meeting. Thank you to them for making the time in their busy schedules to attend and represent for us. I look forward to hearing the information they bring back about our humanitarian effort to bring them all home. Won’t the day that this mission ends in bringing them all home, be a great one? Let’s continue to strive for the fullest possible accounting of our unreturned servicemembers.

Please read the June General Membership Meeting Minutes, so we will be able to take a vote to accept or amend them. Keep an eye on the calendar and Facebook for all of our events.

Hope to see you Saturday for the escort and July 19th for the General Membership Meeting in American Falls. Have a safe and Happy 4th of July!

Thank you,

Yvonne “Eve” Aprato, Director
