Detachment Commander Tom Wallsmith

 

 dc25.jpg Greetings Team Kansas,

It was an Honor to be elected your Detachment Commander for 2016-2017.  I would like to congratulate Past Commander Strothman and His officer's for having a great year. Also Thank You to all of the Detachment for supporting me in the past and the future. We still have some work to do on our membership, team Kansas still needs 162 members to make our goal of 100% . During the upcoming membership year  I hope to see and visit with many of my old friends from across the State. I Also hope to meet many new people. 

Until next month,

Tom Wallsmith

Commander, Detachment of Kansas
