​Comrades, Auxiliary and Supporters

We recently released an e mail outlining the experiences we have endured because of the Covid virus.  This was in no way an attempt at diagnosing, dictating treatment or suggesting quarantine durations. It was in fact an information bulletin to combat rumors in the social media.
Our Canteen is open and has been open since receiving approval from the Governor’s office and the Department of South Carolina Veterans of Foreign Wars, with the proviso that we follow guidelines set down by the Governor’s Office.  The actions as noted in that E-mail were our response to events that occurred in our Canteen with our Staff and customers.  We have been diligent in complying with their directives as stated in the above communication.
Y’all have heard me thank you many times, verbally and in our Newsletter, for allowing us to assist needy Veterans and our Community both patriotically and financially, over the past several years, using funds generated by our Canteen.  We cannot fulfill our obligations to our Veterans and Community without these funds. We are continuing to operate obeying the latest directives from our Department and the Governor’s Office. Please continue supporting your Canteen.
We will be supporting the interment of a Veteran’s unclaimed remains by “Commanders Honors” led by our Chaplain Chuck Blankin at Mt. Pleasant Memorial Gardens on Saturday September 5, 2020 with full Military Honors. If you plan to attend, please wear your cover.
The winner of our Life/Legacy drawing at our Membership Meeting of August 11 was Mathew McDonad had he been present would have received a life Membership or a Bronze Legacy Membership either of which award monies to the Post annually.

​God Bless America and the Veterans of Foreign Wars
