I want to take this opportunity to welcome you to our WILLIAM E. TATE CHAPTER 1 website. I am Commander Leon Booker; we are dedicated to a single purpose: empowering veterans to lead high-quality lives with respect and dignity. I thank you for having confidence in me, and electing me as Commander for the current year. Together, we can work toward the goal of improving the quality of life for everyone here. Our chapter is filled with dedicated past commanders, officers, and veterans that are committed to forging partnerships with the Veterans Administration and business of this community. A volunteer’s sole reason for doing what they do is to ensure the future sustainability of our Chapter or our volunteer projects; focusing all my efforts on "Volunteering" more and “doing” less for myself. Our Chapter, after a year, is close to a point Where we’ve developed unique results of a certain level of quality that will enable us to penetrate the veteran community in the Atlanta metro area.
Unbeknownst to the group we've been doing public relations and veterans community outreach, development, quality control and committing ourselves to better serve veterans and their families volunteering and supporting the Homeless Veterans project at Ft McPherson. Working, Training and volunteering with the Atlanta VA Hospital to name a few successful projects. Let's give the goals and projects our best efforts that they will continue to be a positive viable contribution to the veterans community here and the Atlanta Metro area. We have lost members during my tenure and it saddens me because we are a family and I love all my comrades. My sympathies go out to the families of our deceased Brothers and Sisters. We’re here for you. We as members will continue to visit, call and communicate with our loved ones. Your words of encouragement never fail to inspire and push me further to continue to build William E. Tate Chapter 1 to be a blessing to more veterans in the Atlanta Metropolitan area. DAV Chapters are service organizations and we strive to provide the best service we can with professionalism and confidence for veterans and their families Warm Regards Leon Booker Commander William E.
