Department of Georgia Members,

As most of you know my project for this year is to support the Military Kids.
I have received information from the Georgia OMK Representative that
the D.O.D. has withdrawn their funding for the Operation Military Kids
Summer camps due to budget cuts. We need to work hard on finding
enough money to help keep these camps for the kids. They have
such a hard time with their parents being moved around or deployed
and we need to help give them something to enjoy. These camps
allow the kids to get away and do some fun things together. Please
do what your Unit and Post can to help with this important project.
One camp for 55 kids cost $17,500. Thanks for your help with this.

Betty Grist, President
Department of Georgia Auxiliary
