As we enter into the 3rd quarter of 2018 and have fully entered into summer in Middle Tennessee, I reflect on my first sixty days in office and the amazing things I witnessed our Chapter accomplish.  Thanks to your support we as a Chapter; Honored our Fallen and their Families during 5th Group’s Gold Star Memorial Week, represented our Chapter in the SF Association’s National Convention, hosted forty-five local business men and women at our Green Beret for a Day activities and celebrated our Nations Independence with our annual Fireworks Display at the Safe House.  To be able to witness firsthand the planning / preparation and flawless execution that went into each event, made me proud of the dedication of the members of our Chapter.  You made it happen and for your efforts I thank you!

We cannot rest on our laurels as we look to the upcoming events and prepare for 5th Special Forces Group’s 57th Reunion week activities.  Our Chapter in conjunction with The Legion will be hosting activities from the 17th through the 22nd of September and we look forward to seeing all of you there!


Coming out of the National Convention the message from SFA Headquarters is “We are growing!”  Currently the Association has just shy of 11,000 members spread across 88 Chapters in both the US and overseas.  This is an amazing time to be part of not only the National Association but more of our local Chapter!  If you haven’t come by in a while I invite you, to come out to one of our monthly meetings or Frank’s Famous Bourbon and Biscuits Breakfast.  This is your Chapter, and I’m grateful for the opportunity to serve you!

Strength and Honor 

Terry H. Pevehouse Jr.
President, Chapter 38
