Department of Florida

3rd Vice Commander

Michael Raymond, 3rd Vice Commander

June 2020

First and foremost, I’d like everyone to know I am in good health and doing well and hope everyone else is feeling the same. Some of you have seen me out there along with many others participating in birthday rides, funeral rides and other events that I feel are essential to the well-being of our veteran community. In my opinion these are events that needed to happen now. Events for people that have been taken from us or will probably not be around much longer. Some of you may not agree with me and you have that right. We do our best to operate as safely as possible and everyone participating has accepted the risks involved.

The good news is we are on the downside of this pandemic and it shouldn’t be too much longer before we are back to a degree of normalcy. The other good news is I get to do 3rd Vice again till I get it right! Seriously though, I’m sure it won’t be too bad. I thoroughly enjoyed my time in the “north” country. It’s great to see how a lot of posts are not wasting time and making improvements that will benefit their members in the future. We still must keep our eye on the prize. Membership now is more important than ever. Department has recently sent out information regarding accepting our 400 members automatically into your posts. Read the information and make an educated decision. I highly recommend accepting these members. CPR’s are due now! Let’s get them in. They mean so much to the future of our great organization. If you need help with it, please don’t hesitate to contact your District officers for help.

Stay safe and I hope to see all of you very soon!
