|Veterans Day 2015|
Every year, the nation celebrates Veterans Day to honor the men and women in uniform, who have served our country. Recently, I have met and heard from active military members, veterans and families about how Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity, Inc. can better serve our members connected to the Armed Forces. I have heard the call and have taken action by forming our Commission on Military and Veterans Affairs. You will hear more about this Commission and the future it will forge for Kappa in the coming months.
On behalf of the members of the Grand Board, and the Commission on Military and Veterans Affairs, I thank all of you who are veterans of the United States military. Kappa Men that serve in a military capacity exemplify the true essence of achievement, duty, patriotism and honor! These brothers represent some of the most outstanding members on the Scroll of our great and Noble Clan.
I am appealing to all brothers to reach out to all our brothers who have been in the military and thank them for their service. Their contributions and sacrifices enable us to move this nation forward knowing that we are protected by the best military in the world! To that end, I ask that you participate in or attend the myriad of activities in your area that will honor our veterans!
I am urging you to lead your Province in honoring these stalwart protectors of our freedom. God bless you and your families, and thank you for your attention and for your commitment to Kappa Alpha Psi.
Happy Veterans Day to all brothers....and a special "THANK YOU" to all who are serving or have served!!!
Phi Nu Pi is the reason why I remain...Yours in the Bond,
Thomas L. Battles, Jr.
