Post Commander's Message


Greetings Comrades and Sisters,

Fall is upon us and we have a great month ahead of us but first I want to thank everyone for a great October. We started the month off with the Buddy Walk on October 2nd which we have supported for over two decades.   Buddy walk was a great success with so many great moments and a great meal delivered again for our friends, family and community. A big thanks goes out to our cooks especially Larry Youngblood, John Pratt and there helpers Dennis, Loy and Rodney.        

 We also had a great Halloween party which everyone enjoyed and we can’t forget the Chili & Beans Cook Off that was on the 22nd. This month we have a Buddy Poppy event planed on the 6th at Walmart and of course our Veterans Day event scheduled at the Post Home starting 11:00 a.m. Other events include a Breakfast put on by the Boy, Cub and Girl Scouts on the 19th and a Thanksgiving Day Pot Luck, so please come out and support these events.       

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 Ft. Hood supporting Veterans. Being part of the VFW means supporting the community we live 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 8th of November at 19:00hrs. 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

Post Commander
