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

Did we ever envision that at this time in our lives we would be in the midst of a pandemic? So many people have contracted Covid-19 with so many passing away as a result. Our Department Convention has been cancelled as well as many, many other opportunities for us to gather together. Many businesses are closed down and those that are open have many employees who are working from home. With no idea when we will see this peak in Alaska and things get back to normal, we must find ways to stay safe and healthy as well as positive.

Take some time each day to find something good in your life. It doesn’t have to be something big, but something important to you. Something that will help you face your day and overcome whatever happens that day.

Recognize when God blesses you. It could be something as simple as being with your love ones. Or finding a way to connect with someone. My family did a family reunion via zoom. We had about 30 people on line. It was a bit chaotic, but the best part was getting to see each other and know that we were okay. You could do a conference call or face time each other. Stay connected!

Remember that this will pass. Hang in there and don’t give up. Let us know if there is anything we can do for you.

Thank you for all that you do each and every day. Know that you are truly appreciated. Without each and every one of you our Department would not be what it is today.
