At-Large Director

Gumersindo Gomez

At-Large Director

I would like to extend my appreciation to the membership that came together at the last Convention in the state of Washington two years ago. It was at that Convention that you, the membership, put your trust in me and elected me to a second term as an at-large member of the VVA Board of Directors.

 

In the trust that you placed in me I have tried to do the best with the mandate that you gave us Board members to represent you on the Board of Directors; that is, watching over the organization and ensuring what is best for the membership in VVA.

 

I remember clearly at the last Convention that the membership was very concerned about what is to happen to VVA at the end of the road. I have advocated on the Board to ensure that this business is clear and concise and reflects the members’ wishes. I will continue in that path until we, the membership. achieve our wishes with the organization.

 

As you must be aware, I am the appointed Chair for the Minority Affairs Committee, a job that is very close to my heart, as a minority veteran myself. In these two past years we have been able to help our Vietnam Korean In-Country veterans with the proclamation that you passed at the Convention in their favor so they can get medical services through the VA for PTSD and Agent Orange contamination. With the territory of Puerto Rico and the resolution that you also passed at the Convention, we are moving in a very favorable manner so that the citizens of Puerto Rico can achieve equal treatment as citizens of the United States of America in comparison to the rest of the citizens in the country.

 

I will stand steady in continuing to do your mandate to the Board and continue to help those that can’t help themselves.
