Duties of President: As National President, I am here to serve all of our Gold Star Wives members. I help guide our Region Presidents and Chapter Presidents, conduct our annual Convention, and am involved with many projects to the benefit of our members. I work with many of the committees regarding legislation, increasing membership, and securing funding. We have added Zoom Educational Seminars for all members, a New Member Orientation Seminar, monthly Region President workshop meetings, increased participation on our Friends of Gold Star Wives Facebook page, and are always looking for your input on how we can serve you and all Gold Star Spouses better. UNITED WE STAND.
I have been a member of GSW since 1996 and am so proud of the service of my husband, Captain Philip S. Menagh USMC. Although he served with the USMC for 13 years, including Vietnam, he was shot and killed in a training accident at Fort Bragg while serving in the Virginia National Guard as a SSGT in 1984. Also am very proud of the service of my two youngest children, both of whom served in the USAF, my son as a Captain and my daughter as a Tech SGT. We are indeed families who serve!
