Starting a new chapter--literally.

Currently, I'm trying to start a new chapter of the Women Marines Association in my area. Sadly, there's not one here. The closest one to me is either an hour east or west of me. That doesn't seem to bad, right? Well, with gas prices, five minutes in either direction is far these days. Okay, so that's not really my motivating factor.

Since I live in an area where there are a lot of veteran organizations, I figured it would be a nice addition to have a WMA chapter close by. The WMA is a great organization. I love being a part of it and truly think that every former Marine should join. Yes, men can join too as can family members. The Loyal Escorts of the Green Garter is the official auxiliary of the WMA. The Loyal Escorts are members sponsored by WMA members in good standing.

My biggest challenging right now is finding at least five potential active members to petition for this chapter. Wish me luck!
