Post Commander's Message


Greetings Comrades and Sisters,

We had a great 2016 and 2017 has started with warm weather and a full calendar of events. First, I would like to thank everyone for all the hard work they have put in for all the events in 2016. This includes our most recent Holiday activities of the Post-Christmas Parties, New Year’s activities, Visit by the VFW Elves to the Temple VA and the Expo Chamber of Commerce event.          

We have a full calendar of Birthdays, Meetings, Holidays and Fun. We start with our Post Meeting on the 10th, MLK Holiday on the 16th, Inauguration on the 20th, District Meeting on the 21st at Post 1820 (Temple), and Mid-Winter from the 26th thru the 29th. Bingo on Wednesday, Friday, and Sunday with Karaoke on Friday and Saturday.          

We continue to be a great part of this community and in supporting of others to include the many volunteer hours that some of you put in at the VA in Temple and at Fort Hood supporting our Veterans. Being part of the VFW means supporting the community we live in so that others will see by our example and someday serve in the military as we have.  

We want to welcome our new members to the Post please introduce yourself to them and welcome them. I encourage our new members to come and participate in the many activities at the Post this month, there is something for everyone.   

Hope to see everyone at our next meeting on the 10th of January at 19:00 hrs. or earlier for the VPR at 18:50 hrs. Thank you all again for your hard work and assistance in all we do here at VFW Post 4008.

Yours in Comradeship,

Loy Dean Gardner II
