EANGKS Members asked to help

EANGUS President John Harris urges all EANGKS members to assist the Enlisted Association of Texas members that are victims in the aftermath of hurricane Harvey by donating to EANGUS “We Care for America”.  He asked that all Enlisted Association members to donate to the “We Care for America” foundation and share the link to ask their family and friends to donate also.  President Harris noted that 2000 Enlisted Association members have been called to duty to assist other Texans while their own homes have been damaged and their families are in peril.  This fund is available to assist them in their own recovery.
