Comrades, Auxiliary and Supporters

Congressional Elections are approaching and many of you may have already cast your votes but for those who haven’t I urge you to do so.  There are several Veterans issues that affect all of us and recent disclosures in the VA Healthcare system demand our participation. Vote!! It is a privilege you certainly earned!
We will be presenting Awards to Scouts of Troop 44 at St James Church on Camp Road on November 5th.  We are recognizing their efforts in placing flags on Veterans Graves for Memorial Day.  We will also present Certificates to our entries in the VFW Scout of the Year Program.
We will conduct Veterans Day Services here at the Post on November 11 at 11am.  This joint ceremony is held annually partnering with American Legion Post 147. While this is dedicated to members of both organizations we also invite the Public to participate.
We will be attending District 1 meeting on November 17th at Post 8760 in Beaufort; SC members and Officers are invited.Our initial drawing for a Life or Legacy Membership was held at the closing of our October 9th Membership Meeting.  The unlucky Member was Number 170 Thomas McCarter who was not present.  To recap if you are present at General Membership Meetings and your number is drawn the Post will present you with a Life Membership if you are already a Life Member we will present you with a Bronze Legacy Membership.  Both memberships result in annual stipends to the post from National.

God Bless America and the VFW
