Post Commander's Message


Greetings Comrades and Sisters,

We have had many good things happening here at the Post. We started the month off with a great meeting with good attendance which included the great recognition of the Post for making All American last year. It was great to add the streamer to the Post flag and challenge ourselves to do it again this year. Later in the month the Jr. Vice had a Buddy Poppy event at the VA in Temple and did an outstanding job.

We have many events coming soon to include VJ Day on the 2nd, Patriots Day the 11th, POW/MIA Recognition Day on the 19th, and the District 14 meeting here at our Post on the 24th, and VFW Birthday on the 29th. We will need everyone’s support to make the District14 meeting another great event. Other events in the near future will be Buddy Walk in October (pending date & time) and Veterans Day Ceremonies on November 11, 2016.

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 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 (Richard Anez, Thomas Stojanowski, Roger Mehle and Andrew Thomas) 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 13th of September 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,

Loy Dean Gardner II

Post Commander
