Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 445


​Comrades, Auxiliary and Supporters

Recently Ms. Dana Holtvoight of Agape Hospice visited our Post to talk about “The Veterans History Project at the Library of Congress” their mission is collect and preserve personal  accounts of American war veterans for future generations enabling them to hear directly from veterans and better understand the realities of war. This is an audio interview in the Veteran’s own words and is preserved by the American Folklife Center in the Library of Congress. We have fact sheets available at the Post which better outlines the intent and procedure.  You can also visit www.loc.gov/vets and watch the 15-minute Field Kit Companion Video.

I often refer to our ‘Pledge”, to aid our Veterans their Families and our Community as members of the Veterans of Foreign Wars, verbally to you and in correspondence to others both in the Post and outside. This months VFW Magazine on page 46 highlights that challenge vividly. It is through your membership, contributions and support that our Post Family is a part of those statistics. 

The winner of this moths Legacy/Life Membership was Cia Cianci #049  unfortunately he was not present at the July 9th Membership Meeting remember you must be in attendance to win.

God Bless America and the Veterans of Foreign Wars
