I would just like to take this opportunity before most people head off for the holiday season to thank you all for your support and contributions over the past year. It has been a privilege to be part of such a fantastic organisation and a blessing to have met so many great people throughout the year. I truly cherish the friendships I have made through the associaiton.
In particular I would like to thank the outgoing EXCOM for their efforts over the year, without you we would not have been able to overcome the challenges we have confronted and achieved such a successful year. For the incoming EXCOM, welcome, I look forward to assisting you during the short period of time I have remaining to continue the success of the associaiton in 2017.
Please pass onto our members and their families my sincerest thanks for their support over the past year and I hope you all have a Merry Christmas and best wishes for an enjoyable and prosperous 2017.
- A Word From Our Honarary Director
Greetings and Salutations,
By way of introduction my name is Alex Haro, and I’m a retired Master Sergeant with the United States Marine Corps. I am very proud to have been elected Honorary Director of the Foreign Joint Services NCO’s Association (FJSNA).
I retired from the Marines after 23 years of service in 2008, and currently serve as a military veterans’ advisor in Fredericksburg, VA, where I have lived for the past 12 years. I have also been a member of FJSNA since 2004, most recently serving as the Marine Corps service representative.
My vow to you is to work diligently and to the best of my abilities, to uphold the high standards of the billet of Honorary Director, and to ensure that we maintain the ties heretofore established throughout the Association’s 40-year history.
With the support of every FJSNA member, I look forward to invigorating those bonds and solidifying a path towards the next 40 years!
I wish you and your families a truly blessed Holiday Season and a happy and healthy New Year in 2017.
Alex E. Haro
MSgt, USMC (Ret)
