GER McPherson Encourages All Elks to
Embrace Charity and Compassion
GER Malcolm J. McPherson is encouraging all Elks to embrace charity and compassion this holiday season. You can check out his full message in the latest issue of the Grand Lodge Newsletter:
November 10th marks 242 years of war fighting excellence. At places like Trenton, Tripoli, Chapultepec, Belleau Wood, Guadalcanal, Chosin, Khe Sanh, Fallujah, Sangin, and so many others, Marines have fought with an inner spirit – a spirit that bonds us, binds us together as a cohesive team. It’s that intangible spirit that has formed the foundation of our war fighting reputation for the past 242 years.
Now it’s our responsibility to ensure we honor and carry on that legacy. The American people expect a Corps of men and women who are committed, selfless, willing to sacrifice, who epitomize honor, courage, commitment, virtue, and character. We owe our Nation and our predecessors no less.
