Sampson Vets - President’s Column

Dick Schweitzer, President

The Museum has been turned over to the Natural Heritage Trust and is now managed by Delores Dilmore, who also manages the Navy portion. It is now referred to as “Sampson Veterans Memorial Museum”, under the direction of the NYS Park and Historical System. We are fortunate to have Tom Kirk working with them on contract to manage the Library portion and offer his expertise to visitors.


The reservations for the upcoming reunion are very slow, with only about 30 registrations, which means about 50 people. Time to get them in, please. It takes a lot of effort to get the information organized.


Please consider entering your name for a Board Member Office. Elections will be at the reunion. The present officers have been in office for many years and age, illness, and burn-out are taking their toil!


In the meantime, have a good summer with safe and healthy travels.


Dick Schweitzer, President SAFBVA
