President’s Message - David 'Doc' Martinez

“I shall pass through this world but once. Any good therefore, that I can do or any kindness I can show to any human being let me do it now… for I shall not pass this way again.”

William Penn (1644 – 1718)

As I was sitting here thinking of what to write to the Chapter in this, my second, President’s Message, I came across the above verse that has always meant a lot to me. I include it now because I want with all my heart to be a good and strong leader for our Chapter. I strongly believe in you, the membership, to continue to help us to grow and to remain strong in everything we do for our Chapter.

  We are the Vietnam Veterans, Chapter 310, one of the greatest Chapters among the many in the United States and as we pass on, as the World War II and Korean War veterans have, we can be proud of what we have done. We were the best America had to offer and we acquired ourselves honorably. When needed, we fought a good fight. Our ranks are getting smaller; but, out there, there several veterans who need to join our Chapter. I ask you, the Chapter members, to seek them out and have them attend a meeting so they can see what we are about. We are one big happy family who care about each other. Maybe we can help them and their families. But, they need to be here with us. 

I need at this tme to apologize to the Chapter for not being here for our last meetng but all my responsibilities were assumed by our Vice President, Vance McCrumb. I have heard he did a wonderful job. I am so proud to have such great officers to support me and our Chapter.
 
Sandra and I went to the 1st Marine Air Wing Reunion in Pensacola, Florida and then went on to visit different parts of Florida with my dear friend Larry Scherer who was a Medevac corpsman with me in Vietnam. We went to oyster restaurants recommended by John Kinzinger, Disney World, Universal Studios and Bush Gardens. By then we were pooped out and came home. No matter where you roam it’s sure good to get back home. This trip was planned long before I had any inclination of running for Chapter president.
 
I have plans to invite Father Vincent H. Van Doan, to the Chapter to speak to us about his time in Vietnam, being in a Rehabilitation Camp an making his way to America. Father said he doesn’t want any press coverage. I would like the Chapter to take him out to dinner with a small group so he can have the opportunity to meet us and then set up a date to have him attend a meeting as a guest speaker.

 SEMPER FI and WELCOME HOME

Together, we truly make a difference.
