COMMANDER'S COMMENTS

MAY 2021

Comrades, Auxiliary and Supporters


Our "Early Bird" program for continuous Membership will be ending on May 31, 2021 for this 

year.  If your anniversary date is between now and June 30, 2021 you can renew for just $30.00

We need just 10 renewals or new members to reach our goal of 100% for the current fiscal year.

Thank You!!


We have partnered with American Legion Post 147 to raise funds for our Wreaths Across America

​efforts.  We have decided to get an early start this year in an effort to cover as many Veterans

graves as possible.  Tickets are available at both Posts and from VFW Officers.


Memorial Day is rapidly approaching and traditionally we place Flags on Veterans Graves each

​year.  We try to visit all Cemeteries on James Island and there are more than 800 Veterans graves.  I will be asking the local Boy Scouts for their help again this year; however, we still need your

help.  We plan to commence at 9:00 am on Saturday May 29, 2021 until we are finished.  Hot Dogs

and Soft Drinks for all at the post.


We will return this year to the tradition of having a joint installation ceremony here at the Post

in early June  This is a social event to introduce new or returning Officers to the entire Post Family


The Department Convention this year will be held June 4th thur June 6, 2021 Embassy Suites

Hotel, 200 Stonebridge Drive Columbia, SC.  I will be attending.


The winner of our Life/Legacy drawing at our April 13, 2021 Membership drawing was                                  .  Remember you must be present to be eligible for this award


​God Bless America and the Veterans of Foreign Wars.
