Veterans of Foreign Wars

​Commander's Corner

Comrades, Auxiliary and Supporters,


We are beginning a new fiscal year in the VFW and with it comes the challenges associated with continuing our pledge to helping Veterans and our Community.  We need your support in our continuing efforts to fulfill this pledge.  We would like to have candidates for the Voice of Democracy and Patriots Pen programs, Teacher of the year, First Responder, and Boy Scouts awards. 

These candidates are all from our Community and you as members know them personally.  You need only to nominate them and we will initiate the necessary steps to recognize them. Many of these programs reward Candidates with Scholarship monies in addition to their standing in the community.

We are continuing our efforts to make repairs to our Post Home despite emergencies that seem to be constantly arising i.e. parking lot flooding, road construction, air conditioning condensation and parking alignment. We have gotten approval for a new Trash pump to relieve our flooding problem and with the completion of the road construction water will be directed to the road.  My company has agreed to design a parking layout which will be offered for your approval. We will then add signage and markings to facilitate parking and traffic flow.

We need YOUR help if we are to accomplish any of these things.

God Bless America and the VFW

Jim
