President’s Corner

President’s Corner – 14 June 2024

Dear Industry Partners, Chapter Members, and Friends of Fort Moore –
Thank you for your continued support of the Chattahoochee Valley – Fort Moore (CV-FM) Chapter of AUSA and the Maneuver Center of Excellence.  As our AUSA calendar year comes to a close on 30 June, I want to update you on our just completed GMM and officer election and remind you of several upcoming events in the life of the Chapter.
The Chapter held our third General Membership Meeting on 12 June 2024 at the National Infantry Museum with over 48 people in attendance.  To kick off our GMM we were pleased to have a Korean War Veteran and a platoon of young Soldiers participate in our celebration of the Army’s 249th Birthday with a cake cutting ceremony at the NIM.  Following that we enjoyed a catered BBQ lunch in the Heritage Room, announced the winners of our annual Chapter Scholarships, and recognized the winners of the MCoE Best Squad Competition.  Finally, we voted on our slate of Executive Committee BOD members for the 2024 – 2025 year that begins on 1 July 2024.
The incoming Chapter President, Carlos Pignato, has asked me to lead up our Moore Night Celebration in Room 202 from 6-8 PM on 15 October at the Washington Convention Center.  I look forward to sharing a dram with you as we continue to hold the traditional Warrior Punch Ceremony!  I ask that you continue to provide Carlos with all the same support that has made our Chapter so successful over the past three years.
As we get closer, look for additional information to come out on our annual Industry Day at the Columbus Iron Works Convention Center, set for 9 April 2025.
Thanks again for supporting the Soldiers and families of Fort Moore for the past 27 months!
v/r Steve
