MGYSGT WILLIAM S. BECKER JR., USMC(RET.) delivered the original charter of the Melbourne Chapter to me yesterday and announced with regret that they have closed the chapter.
Close examination of the above charter reflects that the Melbourne Chapter received its charter on 15 August 1973 and the charter is signed by the Association President, Lieutenant General H.W. Buse. I will have this charter framed and placed in a place of honor here in the Association Headquarters.
The funds remaining in the chapter account will be forwarded to the Association Headquarters for deposit in the General Fund.
