I’m wearing a mask and rubber gloves while writing this month’s CPN Veterans Report to protect readers from the dreaded COVID-19 virus. But in all seriousness, this is a historical event that will be remembered and told for generations to come. Businesses closed, jobs lost, toilet paper shortages — I don’t really understand that one — and the numerous sick and the too many deaths as a result of this new pandemic virus. Every “expert” has their own prediction of what the future holds for our Tribe, our country and the world. The first responders and medical people have been frontline heroes of this health war. Many of our veterans know the fear of fighting an invisible enemy. We will prevail, but only if we take this pandemic fight as a real threat and follow the advice of the medical teams. Please take care.

CPN Veterans Organization meetings

Following the advice of our state and national leaders, the CPN Veterans Organization is suspending our monthly meetings until further notice as well as our Color Guard and Honor Guard functions. It was not any easy decision, but one we felt was in the best interest of CPN Veterans.

(Thank you),
