Recently VVA chapter 996 President Jake Lopez and his wife, Lisa, were guests on the radio show "Calling All Vets" with Chuck Zobac. They talked about the chapter and the Memorial Wall at Angel Fire project. Here is a link where you can listen!

We received a donation today from the American Legion Post 25 in Clovis. It is a $5,000 donation for the Vietnam Memorial Wall in Angel Fire. Dale Movius presented the check today at the Roundhouse on Military Day at the Legislature. This is a great boost for our fund-raising efforts!
