Welcome to 2024

Welcome to 2024!

Happy New Year.

Every New Year brings feelings of a fresh start, and potentially some extra motivation to meet a personal goal. I always hope to find more time to spend in the gym. Like everyone else, I’m not getting any younger (or in my case, losing any weight). A healthy diet and regular exercise go a long way to ensuring a long, healthy life and can help with a positive outlook.

Like always, a lot is going on in 2024. I certainly appreciate everything you do to make it possible. I’d like to take this opportunity to thank you for everything you did for us in 2023. We have a couple of videos that ‘tip the hat’ to our Soldiers and Airmen. We don’t exist without you, and I hope I can get more people like you to serve in our ranks for 2024.

Enjoy, and again, Happy New Year!

Maj. General Gregory Knight
