The main job of the Gold Star Wives Inc National Vice President is to step in for the National President if that officer is unable to fulfill the duties. The Vice President additional duties are to serve on the National Special Recognition Committee, represent GSW at the Veteran’s Day Program in Birmingham, Alabama, ensure that there is a GSW member to present the wreath at the Pearl Harbor Commemoration on December 7th in Hawaii. The Vice President helps to raise awareness for the organization and represents GSW in as many community events wherever possible. In addition can participate in the monthly Board, Region, and Member at Large meetings.

I am honored to serve as the 2022-23 National Vice President. I am proud to be a member of one of the most important organizations in this great nation. I think about all the phenomenal GSW leaders before us, who helped build the strong foundation.

This challenging year has been interesting for all in every aspect of our lives. “United We Stand To Win, Divided We Fall - And Are Forgotten."  Let’s all step up and give our best to support one another. Each and everyone of you Matter and can have a positive impact. As members we can carry on the principles, values, and courage to continue building our Gold Star Wives Organization.

I can hardly wait to start having fun in 2023 with you and hopefully I’ll get to see you in person.  Stay Well and Spread Sunshine!
