Mission Statement & Policies
The Board emphasized our decision to remain within our mission statement objectives when it came to sickness and death of Charlie Company members. We will do all we can to make these events known to our organization but responses will be voluntary from members. No Charlie Company funds will be used for flowers, etc. but, if time allows, we will let you know what has happened and what you can do if you wish.
