John Beeman


I am a 20 year member of Herbert J. McKune Squadron #31 in Chelsea, Michigan. My eligibility is through my grandfather. I have been married to Patricia since 1974. We have two children, Michelle and John, five grandchildren, and one great-granddaughter. I have been self-employed since 1990 as a licensed builder.

At the squadron level, I have been the commander for the last 15 years for Squadron #31. Other events I have been involved with in Post 31 are The Winter Carnival, 4th of July Chicken BBQ, Hero’s On Water and the Squadron Annual Golf Outing.

At the District level, I have been Jr. Vice, Sr. Vice, and a 5 year Commander. I also am on the 2nd District golf outing committee.

At the State level, I have served as Awards & Trophy chairman and Pin Sales chairman. I have been a board member for Wilwin at Cygnet Cove for the last 4 years.

As the Detachment Commander for 2023-2024, my slogan is (Standing up for Veterans) which we all should be doing! My special project is to raise money to buy golf carts for Wilwin at Cygnet Cove. My goal is to raise enough money to buy a 6-passenger golf cart and some regular golf carts. With any money left over, I would like to have a fund set up to help pay for the maintenance of the golf carts. With your help, we can accomplish this.

I’m looking forward to representing you.

For God and Country
