"We here in Alaska are staying till the end. Many have said they will not join the Aux. Main reason to me is we lose our longevity and start over like the previous 12 years didn't count."

Comander in Chief resolutioon 302 for this 2014 Convention

It passed the Post and was to be taken to DEPT. Asked other MAs to push for it and some submitted thier own resolutiion.…See More
