From the Honor Guard – Terry Troesch

Best regards from the Honor Guard

In the month of June the Honor Guard has no scheduled ceremonies. This month however the post will be hosting a shindig for the incoming officers and members of the post on June 25th. It will be a great time. Come on out and sit a spell.

This past month we observed Memorial Day and paid tribute to our fallen brothers and sisters. Their sacrifice must never be forgotten. If it is (their sacrifices forgotten or diminished) we’ve lost more than can be stated here. It requires us to make the commitment, sometimes at the expense of personal time. We must make this as a priority and remember the sacrifice of those who have given all.

Our Honor Guard is always looking for new members and desperately needs some new members. As it stands now, we’re short and very limited in our ability to perform some functions. If you know someone who could be or shows a desire to give their time and efforts for a very worthy cause, help make it happen. The rewards are immense.

Our next scheduled meeting will be June 9th @ 18:30 and the next Honor Guard Bingo on June 24th. As is the case most of the time, our Bingo can be very entertaining. Come on out and take the chance to holler “BINGO” and win some fabulous prizes.

Most respectfully,
Terry Troesch

Hi everyone, an update on VA Hospital Chillicothe- alll visits as of May 12, 2022 are cancelled due to an uptick in COVID. Our monthly donation will continue. Also, we plan a June delivery of personal items- towels, shampoo, mouthwash, toothpaste, etc.

I am looking forward to working with you in the upcoming year we have many new projects with a lot to be done.

Thanks to Kathy Strotton and H & D Supply for their weekly donation that aids our homeless veterans and provides for our outreach services. The need is great, our post volunteers have changed more lives than you can imagine.
