Comrades:

          Words cannot express the total sense of honor and trustworthiness you have placed in selecting me as the 2017 – 2018 Department of Alabama Commander. Your loyalty and consistent faithfulness to the Veterans of Foreign Wars remains the fuel that we will use to honor and serve our veterans.

          Our motto of “NO ONE DOES MORE FOR VETERANS” is the battle cry that will be heard from the top to the bottom of Alabama and we will work diligently to ensure no veteran is turned away or denied the services that are duly owed to them. Our team effort will be evident in every drive and program we sponsor.   Our goal will be to achieve 100% membership in every Post and provide assistance to ensure we meet and exceed our goals. We must recruit and retain members to ensure our viability for years to come.

          This book provides a roadmap for the success of each Post and the Department. Let our motto of “TOGETHER WE CAN” begin a path of sustained success to ensure we honor our organization and the veterans that forged the way for us.

          I thank you for this honor that cannot be expressed in words but only through action. Let us make Alabama the shining example it should be and let’s have a great year serving our great nation and our veterans.

Yours in comradeship,

DENNIS DOHERTY, Commander

Department of Alabama
