On Sunday, 19 March, WCMOA held its Spring Luncheon at Redding Country Club. After the Pledge followed by LTCOL John Simonetti giving the invocation, 1LT Matt Hicks had some announcements. In addition to our normal chapter admin, Matt put forward CW3 Will Seeley as the president-elect for WCMOA.  Congrats Will and thank you for taking the helm of leadership.
