Thank you all for your generosity and support for my candidacy for Judge Advocate of the Department of Massachusetts.
As I have repeatedly said, personalities aside, there is nothing as boring and as meaningless as an unopposed election, and there is nothing as exciting as a real, sweat filled and honest election because that is what magnifies any differences of opinion that may exist. Also, that is what prevents atrophy and decline.
I could not reject an AMVET’s nomination made at the SEC. I felt it my duty to accept rather than to reject the call.
I also feel it my duty to support Don McLean and our Department at the National Convention. I look forward to attending and supporting Don because he is our AMVET and our Department officer whom ALL should support.
I congratulate all the winners; the burden is now on YOUR shoulders to continue our noble traditions without discrimination or rancor.
