A Sad Day for Us All

Compatriots and Friends,
It is with great sorrow that I must inform you of the passing of our Compatriot Jeff Gammon.  Jeff passed away yesterday morning while on vacation in Vail. Jeff’s wife Joyce informed me they will do an autopsy tomorrow and he will be cremated. Jeff wanted his ashes taken to Lake Tahoe which Joyce will do next spring.
Jeff’s passing leaves a big void in our Chapter, Jeff was a Warrior for God and he gave his full devotion to serving our active duty military and our veterans through his Operation Ancestor Search “OAS” service.  Jeff will be missed by all.  Our prayers and condolences go out to Joyce Gammon.
