The Guyana Legion and the XGDF Association are one.

Dear Editor,
At a Special General Members Meeting held at its Guyana Legion Headquarters on Carifesta Avenue on Sunday April 6,
2014, at which attendance was in excess of two hundred members, a resolution to amalgamate the Guyana Legion and
the XGDF Association of Guyana was welcomed with great applause and excitement . The resolution was proposed by
Frank Bishpan (Colonel Retired) and was seconded by a ninety year old World War II Veteran, Gladwyn Nestor and
attracted a one hundred percent vote in favor.  This birthed a new organization for military veterans which will now be
recognized and renamed “Guyana Veterans Legion”.
A new Constitution was presented to the membership by the President George Gomes (Lieutenant- Colonel Retired).  
The new Constitution evoked extensive discussions before being endorsed by all present. Highlighted in the Constitution
were (a) The new name of the organization, (b) The new Motto, (c) Specific and improved benefits for World War
Veterans, among other things.
The meeting was chaired by the President of the organization while greetings were extended by visiting representatives
of the New York and Canada chapters of the ex-GDF associations.
Meetings at the Guyana Veterans Legion Headquarters will be held on the first Sunday of each month at 14:00hrs.     
The new Executive will shortly pay courtesy visits to the Berbice and Linden Branches.
Eon Andrews
Public Relations Officer
