The Veterans Against Drugs Committee is very excited to move from a VVA task force to a committee. The committee is planning some updated and improved lesson plans for the Patriotism Program.
Many members have seen the DVD produced by Veterans Against Drugs. It’s a very useful tool. The committee thanks the members of VVA Incarcerated Chapter 689 for their candid remarks and stories about the effects of drugs and violence in their lives.
In January Veterans Against Drugs again sponsored the Drug-Free Ice Skating Event at the Silver Spring, Md., Ice Rink. This was the committee’s forth year providing a no-cost event for the young people in the community where the national VVA headquarters is located. Because the committee selected a date during the January BOD meeting, it was able to invite the National Officers and Board of Directors to see what a successful event this has become. Special thanks to the office staff members who helped with this event.
