Female Veterans New American Legion Post Forming
Just For You
If you are a female veteran (no longer serving on
Active duty, Reserves, or National Guard) living in commuting distance
of Fort Leonard Wood and have been looking for a group who shares
your values and sense of patriotism then this new American Legion
Post is for you. You will belong to the largest veterans service
organization in the world but more importantly you will share in
the benefits of forming an American Legion Post dedicated to the
welfare and support of all female veterans in the Fort Leonard Wood
area. Within the State of Missouri there are thousands of female
veterans in addition to those still serving-we need to stand side
by side to help one another.
All women American Legion posts already exist in St. Louis, Kansas
City, and Columbia. These female Legionnaires come together each
month to further the principles of the American Legion-Americanism,
Veterans, Children & Youth, and National Security. They are
women veterans helping women veterans.

Curves Hosts National Open House Week in Honor of "Me Time"
Recent Survey Finds Nearly Seven in Ten Women Don't Feel They Have
Enough "Me Time." Curves of Waynesville Offering Free
Workout and Tour of the "All New" Curves September 15th-20th
Curves International, Inc., http://www.curves.com
the largest chain of fitness centers for women in the world, announced
that participating Curves are hosting an Open House the week of
September 15-20, 2014 and new members can receive 30 days free,*
in addition to a free workout. The Open House week provides women
with the opportunity to check out their local "all-new"
Curves and take some important "me time" for themselves.
According to a new survey conducted online by Harris Poll on behalf
of Curves, nearly seven in ten (67%) women responded they do not
feel they have enough "me time" in a given week for their
personal interests and hobbies. Fitness and wellness activities
such as going to the gym or exercising rank among the top four ways
to spend "me time," but six in ten (57%) women feel that
typical gym workouts are too time-consuming. Fortunately, Curves
offers an efficient, effective 30-minute option that allows women
to work out - with friends- and still have extra "me time"
for other hobbies and interests.
During the Open House week, new members will have the opportunity
to work out for free on the Curves circuit, including experiencing
Curves Workouts with Jillian Michaels, which are full body workouts
that change each month. Those who join that day will receive 30
days free on their membership. In addition, participating Curves
locations will offer free health assessments, healthy snacks and
other raffles and giveaways in celebration of the Open House.
"As women look for efficiencies amidst busy fall schedules
and aim to maximize their 'me time,' a 30 minute Curves workout
is the perfect option," said Mike Raymond, chief marketing
officer at Curves International, Inc. "The circuit affords
women a great full-body workout while still leaving time for other
personal interests. We encourage prospective members to come and
check us out this month, to see what's new and different at Curves."
Curves is "all new" with many new offerings including,
the addition of Curves Workouts with Jillian Michaels, new lifestyle
apparel, protein bars and dessert bars as well as new state-of-the-art

Local attorney graduates from U.S. Army War College;
Rep. Lynch attends Commandant's National Security Program
Local attorney and Colonel in the U.S. Army Reserves Judge Advocate
General's (JAG) Corps, Matt Dreesen recently graduated from the
prestigious U.S. Army War College in Carlisle Barracks, Penn., joining
the ranks of Army War College graduates Eisenhower, Bradley and
"It is an honor to share this association with these great
American heroes," Dreesen says. "It is also an honor to
have had my nominee, State Rep. Steve Lynch, be selected to attend
the Commandant's National Security Program."
It's also a first for Pulaski County.
Dreesen, working in the law office of David M. Lowe Attorney at
Law Firm in Waynesville, is believed to be the first local businessman
from Pulaski County selected for the two-year distance program and
the first non-active duty soldier in Pulaski County to have his
nominee -- a state representative -- be selected from hundreds to
attend the annual Commandant's National Security Program.
Dreesen graduated from the U.S. Army War College's Distance Education
Class of 2014. He is one of just 368 military officers who completed
two years of demanding distance instruction and four weeks of resident
instruction at Carlisle -- all on his own time.
"I am grateful for the opportunity and for the support of
my wife and sons for these past two years," Dreesen says. "Valerie
juggled a lot of extra duties, allowing me to achieve this long-term
Dreesen is a member of the Rotary Club of Pulaski County, where
he met State Rep. Steve Lynch. Knowing Lynch's tireless, long-term
dedication to Fort Leonard Wood, Dreesen nominated Lynch for the
annual Commandant's National Security Program, which is held annually
at the Army War College.
"I was one of just 66 civilians and the only state representative
selected to attend the CNSP," Lynch says. "It was incredible
to be beside members of the CIA, Homeland Security, the IRS Criminal
Division, CEOs, heads of major international security companies
and federal prosecutors. I feel so blessed to have been chosen to
participate in this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity and for Col.
Dreesen for nominating me."
Three days of lectures, small group studies and working beside
Dreesen and the other war college's graduates deepened Lynch's understanding
and appreciation of the challenges the Army is facing, especially
the budget cuts. "The world is more dangerous than it ever
has been -- with more 'hot spots' than ever," Lynch says. "We
have the best Army in the world and people respect it, but it scares
me to think of our military doing less with less. That's why I am
grateful for leaders like Col. Dreesen, especially in these times."
While maintaining his private law practice, Dreesen continues to
serve his country as a Colonel in the U.S. Army Reserves JAG Corps
and has served in senior Judge Advocate positions as a Legal Operations
Detachment Commander and as a Staff Judge Advocate for multi-state
military units. Dreesen has also served on the Board of Governors
of the Bar Association of Metropolitan St. Louis and Chairman of
the Federal Practice committee.
Only those with a high degree of dedication and perseverance are
selected for the Army War College. The course expands and broadens
an officer's strategic thinking skills, encourages them to question
assumptions, develops their strategic leadership abilities, deepens
their tactical and operational focus, expands their open mindedness,
explores multiple options and builds their leadership capacities.
"I am so proud of Matt's sacrifice and dedication to our country
in graduating from the U.S. Army War College while serving as a
Legal Operations Detachment Commander and maintaining a private
law practice. This speaks well not only of Matt, but also of our
entire community," says David M. Lowe, who is also a Colonel
in the U.S. Army JAG Corps and is currently serving as the State
Judge Advocate of the Missouri National Guard.
An attorney since 1993, Dreesen's practice includes Family Law,
Injury Law, Medical Malpractice, Nursing Home Abuse, Social Security/Disability,
Worker's Compensation, Wrongful Death and Whistleblower Act Cases.
In addition to Lynch, Dreesen was joined with his wife, two sons
and Lowe during the graduation ceremony held at Carlisle Barracks,
Penn., in late July.
