What a week this have been!!  The view out my window is that of the Washington Monument in Washington, DC!!  I still cannot believe that I am in Washington DC – a place that I have always wanted to see but never thought I would.  And I am here with the most amazing groups of ladies in the American Legion Auxiliary.

 This week at the Washington DC Conference  we have heard about Fiduciary Stewardship, Civic Health, Family Readiness, Leadership and Caring for Caregivers – and that is just to name a few of the topics covered.  On Tuesday we head to Capitol Hill to meet with Senators Thune and Rounds and Congresswoman Noem. 

 This has been a week of new experiences for me.  I was able to visit Arlington, Jefferson Memorial, Lincoln Memorial and the Vietnam Memorial on Saturday before it started to snow.  We then made a trip to the World War II Memorial with National President Janet Jefford where she laid a wreath in memory of our World War II Veterans and we sung “God Bless America” as a group!!!  The most moving part for me was being able to take a picture of my Dad, Edward Moeller, and place it on the South Dakota pillar at the World War II Memorial – he never got to see it, but his spirit is there.

 I ask that you keep the entire South Dakota delegation in your prayers as we start our journey home – and I look forward to seeing many of you very soon.

In the Spirit of Good Will!!
