Post Commander's Message


Greetings Comrades,

What a great month we had. It’s always a great October with our “Downs But Not Out Buddy Walk” to kick the month off on the 7th. I want to start off by thanking everyone for pitching in and particularly the cooks who work so hard every year to make this such a success. Also, I want to thank the decorating committee for getting us ready for the Halloween Party we had on the 27th.  There are great things going on and again I want to thank everyone for all the hard work and participation at this last month’s activities.             

That being said we have many events this month starting with the Chili and Bean Cookoff on the 3rd followed by a relaxing Veterans Day grill out at the Post on Sunday the 11th.  We will finish off the month with a Thanks Giving Day Pot Luck on the 22nd so everyone come out and eat, eat, eat!!!         

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, the USO on Fort. Hood and supporting our Adopt-A-Unit 4/3 Calvary who has been a great partner. 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. Please get out there and recruit new members to help veterans all over.  

 Hope to see everyone at our next meeting on the 13th of November at 19:00 hrs. Thank you all again for your hard work and assistance in all we do here at VFW Post 4008.

Yours in Comradeship,

Post Commander
