Bradley Chapter

   Letter from the President  Richard E. Dayoub



We are in a period of great change for our Army. As we continue to face the uncertainties of
budget constraints and the realities of growing numbers of
conflict zones across the globe, we continue to be the voice for the Army. Now more than
ever, your continued support of the General of the Army Omar Bradley Chapter strengthens
our voice and commitment to protect the promises made to those men and women who
freely stand in harms’ way to protect our freedom. As the Chapter President, I am committed to continue the great
work of our Past Presidents and to making a difference in our Soldiers’ lives.

The Association of the United States Army exists to speak for the US Army. This includes
Active Duty, Reserve, National Guard, Officer, NCO, Enlisted and Retired Soldiers. We also
have the responsibility to speak for Soldier's families, Department of the Army civilian
employees, and yes, the El Paso community that supports Fort Bliss. This can only be
accomplished through support from our current membership (Community Partners) and by
increasing the number of members in our Chapter.

I am amazed at the dedication and sacrifices that our Soldiers make every day. They inspire
me to provide them and their families the best support possible. There are many challenges
ahead and AUSA Omar Bradley Chapter stands ready to face these challenges and advocate
for the promises made to our Soldiers and their families.

As General of the Army Omar Bradley Chapter members, I would also ask for your help by
continuing to increase our membership and strengthen our voice. The Omar Bradley Chapter
is entirely “volunteer driven” so 100% of contributions are directed to our support programs.
Your modest membership investment enables the Bradley Chapter volunteers to continue
assisting these brave men and women and their family members during long periods of

We must to continue to let Congress and other elected officials know that we speak with one
voice on behalf of our Army.
