Post Commander's Message


Post Commander’s Message

Greetings Comrades and Sisters

My year as Commander has passed so fast. It seems as just yesterday I took up the gavel of the Post.  As with our time spent in uniform this to must end. I want to thank everyone for their support and encouragement throughout this past year. My Officers, Trustees and Auxiliary did a top notch job and I credit our continued success to them. We have accomplished much this year and as I hand off the gavel to a most capable new commander I would ask that you provide him the type of support that you have provided me throughout this past year. 

We had many events this past month to include our Belton Education Enrichment Foundation Scholarship being awarded and then culminating the month with our Memorial Day Ceremony and Luncheon on the 30th of May.  Great turnout for the Memorial Day Ceremony with the Waskow family in attendance always makes it a special occasion.

Remember to come out and support our Bingo.  Karaoke is still the hot thing on Friday nights and every other Saturday night is live entertainment in the canteen. This month is State Convention in Dallas starting on the 15th, the day after our post meeting. 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. 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 many new members to the post. Please welcome our new members and introduce yourself to them. I encourage you to come and participate in the many activities at the post there is something for everyone.   

Hope to see everyone at our next meeting on the 14th of June at 19:00 hrs. Thank you all again for your hard work and assistance in all we do here at VFW Post 4008.

I would also like to “THANK” our non-members for all their support. People like Jamie Elkins, Daryl Mooney and many others help us in so many ways. 

Yours in Comradeship
