Thanks to all who participated in our Veterans Day weekend programs. We attended Loris Elementary's salute to veterans at their 8 a.m. assembly on Friday the 10th and then were honored by the children of Daisy Elementary at their 9 a.m. assembly. Post Commander Nick Camera addressed the assembly of 3rd, 4th, and 5th graders to remind them of the history and the importance of Veterans Day and all of our local veterans were honored.
Our VFW Post stands behind our flag and will insure that the United States flag is retired properly on Flag Day.
Our buddy poppy campaign supports our relief fund which is the SOLE source of our donations and support to our fellow veterans and worthy community organizations which support our veteran community.
Please call or email our Chaplain Bob Wasden at 843-249-5196 or firstname.lastname@example.org
We are gathering for a Membership Summit and will go Door to Door to reach our expired members. Ready to join our team? Be there at 3 pm on the 6th for Membership Summit.
We need volunteers to distribute Poppies. We have reserved Nov 17 & 18 and the following weekend (24 & 25) Nov), at Dino's, Golden Griddle, and Boulineau's in Cherry Grove. PLEASE CALL JR. VICE COMMANDER DON COLLINS at the Post or come in and sign up on the board in the canteen to volunteer for this important fundraiser for our relief fund to help our local veterans.
Coming home doesn't mean the battle is over. With over 10 times the amount of veterans lost to suicide than to combat operations in the same time period, there has never been a more important time to TAKE A STAND and DO something to support our veterans!! If you or someone you know is suffering from PTSD, we have people that have shared a similar experience and are ready to help. Call the Post. Our Chaplain Bob Wasden and our entire team is here to help you! We participate in and fully support the Campaign to Change Direction. We are here for you!
