On Saturday, March 16th, 2002, the
Department of Maryland hosted a dinner in honor of National Commander
Richard Santos and his wife.
Disney-Bell Post 66 was represented by
Commander J.D. Larson and wife Michele, Adjutant James Pritchett and
wife Marie, Judge Advocate Charlie Milstead and wife Kathy, and
Sgt-at-Arms Les Wicklein and wife Bridget. It was a great evening with
cash bar, appetizers, meal, presentations and dancing.
Commander Santos gave a great keynote
address speaking on the importance of the changing veteran and our need
to address those changes in our recruiting efforts. It was a very
entertaining evening for all of use who attended. Take a look at our
pictures and maybe you will want to join us next year.
