I hope all of you Citizen Potawatomi Nation Veterans survived the heat of July. It sure put the steam in our summer activities. Our Citizen Potawatomi Veterans Organization has seen a boost in our active membership. We had several CPN Veterans join our group and commit to joining us in our Color Guard and Honor Guard events. We will now have enough members to carry more of our flags to better represent the Citizen Potawatomi Veterans and the Tribe at school events and other functions. We are getting more schools requesting the demonstration and explanation of the folding of our United States flag. It means a lot to us for the schools and the public to show interest and respect for our Nation’s flag, which represents all people of our United States of America and our Veterans who sacrificed so much for our freedoms.

Remember, our monthly meeting of the Citizen Potawatomi Nation Veterans Organization is the 4th Tuesday of each month (unless otherwise notified due to weather or conflicting events) at 6 p.m. (or as soon as you can get there) in the North Reunion Hall on the CPN Powwow Grounds. All CPN Veterans and their spouses and families are welcome. Membership in the Veterans organization is not required; come and visit us and enjoy our socializing. For more information, you can contact Daryl Talbot.

(Thank you),

Daryl Talbot, Commander
