Shaping a positive future for our veterans, our military and their families.

Notes from the Department Secretary

From the Secretary's Desk
By Barb Nath, Department Secretary

As we begin the new year, we hope that it will be a much better year than 2020. We have had a lot to deal with this past year, but we are resilient, we are strong. We are family!

Whether we are blood related, or related by our commitment to each other, we are definitely family. Family cares for each other, stands by each other and never gives up.

To start our year, let’s spend some time thinking of these quote about family:

“Family is not an important thing. It’s everything” –Michael J. Fox

“Being a family means you are part of something very wonderful. It means you will love and be loved for the rest of your life.” –Lisa Weed

“In family life, love is the oil that eases friction, the cement that binds closer together, and the music that brings harmony.” –Friedrich Nietzsche “Family is not defined by our genes, it is built and maintained through love” – Anonymous

“The bond that links your true family is not one of blood, but of respect and joy in each other’s life.” –Richard Bach

“Call it a clan, call it a network, call it a tribe, call it a family: Whatever you call it, whoever you are, you need one.” –Jane Howard

Going forward into 2021, may you all experience things from which you can find cheer and gratefulness. God bless all of you.
