As of this morning, I have received the following entries for the Department Middle School Essay Contest.

1st District/P56

3rd District/P75

4th District/P146

11th District/P87

13th District/P74

15th District/P199

17th District/P139

Thanks again to all the posts and districts that participated. This is two more than we had last year, however, with 17 Districts,

I think we can all agree that we should have more. I have had several inquiries from the post level that did not know about this

program/contest. All the information needed to put this program together at the post level is on the Department website…

Thanks again,

Bill Feasenmyer
