From the Desk of Executive Director Bryon Short - December 9, 2022
With Thanksgiving behind us, we are well into the 2022 Holiday Season. It is my hope that in the coming weeks DCA’s members continue to have the opportunity to celebrate the holiday season with those who are special to them. There are many brave Americans who aren’t in a position to share the holiday season with their loved ones because they have placed service to our country ahead of their own comfort. They are abroad in our armed forces protecting all of us.
It is DCA’s recognition of their sacrifice that inspires our members to continue to contribute to the Stockings for Soldiers program again this year. The generosity of DCA’s members in making donations to send to our service members across the globe is overwhelming but certainly not surprising. Members of the Young Executives Committee deserve a special thank you for organizing the contributions and delivering them to the Stockings for Soldiers “assembly site”. As well as, for the first time this year, volunteering to stuff stockings.
Taking time to be grateful for our own blessings and sharing with others is what makes this such a special time of year. Thank you to all our members who contributed. Please know this holiday season that your generosity will brighten a service member’s life.
