|This is my last message as State
President--in fact, I'm not even the State
President any more, Joe Marvin from the Frank Luke
Chapter in Glendale is, but I wanted to add one
quick thing from before I stepped down to become
the Southwest Region President, and that's a
picture of four of the five Arizona AFA members
who attended the National Convention and Air and
Space Conference in the Washington, D.C., area in
September. From left to right, that's Joe, Barbara
Yazdandoost from the Tucson Chapter, George Castle
from the Cochise Chapter, and yours truly.
One more thing: sequestration hurt the U.S.
economy, and the government shutdown is doing the
same thing. It's also hurting the U.S. Air Force.
I urge each of you to write your Senators and
Congressman or Congresswoman and tell them
sequestration is the wrong way to deal with the
federal government's genuine and serious budget
problems and the shutdown isn't a productive way
to deal with the disagreements Republicans and
Democrats currently have over health care and
other issues. Contact information for all U.S.
Senators is available here.
