VFW- POST 7394 - Blairsville, Georgia
On Friday, September 18th, from 4-7 pm, the local Unit 121 of the American Legion Auxiliary will hold an open house at the Leon Davenport Veterans Center on 78 Old blue Ridge Highway (the gray building that used to be the Blairsville Chamber of Commerce, adjacent to the park and ride). Those who have experienced the grief of having or being a POW or MIA are welcome to come and join in fellowship for a time of reflection. During the open house, POW MIA individuals will be honored with a candle lighting, and recitations of the Missing Man will be given at 4:30, 5:30, and 6:30. Attendees are encouraged to bring a photo of the POW/MIA to be placed on the table of honor, and attendees will be given a few moments to speak, if they desire, about their loved one. COVID precautions will be taken; social distancing will be observed and masks will be required to be worn inside the building. Light refreshments will be served. For more information on the program, please contact Unit President/Chaplain Janice Walters-Taylor at 706.745.1854.
“Best of Nam I have seen. You have honored all Nam Vets in such a way that many will be talking of this for years to come and I believe it will help America understand us and help in the healing of our wounds” – Ralph Christopher
Established in 1967, the HA(L)-3 Navy Seawolves were the US Navy’s first attack helicopter gunship squadron, established inside the Republic of Vietnam to provide close air support to the River Patrol Boats, Swift Boats, Navy SEALs, Brown Water Navy Vessels and friendly forces in the Mekong Delta. Using war-torn hand-me-down huey's from the Army, the Seawolves would go on to become the most decorated Squadron in the Vietnam War. Fifty years later, their story is finally being told.

At VFW’s 1922 national convention in Seattle, Washington, the organization officially adopted the blood-red flower.
In February 1924, VFW registered the name “Buddy Poppy” with the U.S. Patent Office. The term “Buddy”® was coined by the poppy makers, who, at the time, were disabled veterans. It was a tribute to the veterans who did not come home and those disabled or scarred for life.🌺

Wearing RED this (and National POW/MIA Recognition Day). - always in our thoughts and prayers! Be safe!
Join us each Friday for coffee and donuts.
POW/MIA Recognition Day is held annually on the third Friday of September in the United States. Every day, and especially today, we remember the sacrifices made by prisoners of war and those who remain missing in action while defending our nation.
POW/MIA Recognition Day extends beyond the Vietnam War and encompasses all conflicts where American service members have been held captive or are still unaccounted for. The black and white POW/MIA flag, symbolizing the nation's commitment to never forget these individuals, has been raised across the country on this day every year since its establishment in 1979.
We express our deepest gratitude to those who have endured the hardships of captivity and honor the memory of those whose fate remains unknown. Let us join together in reflection, hope, and solidarity, pledging to remember and support our POWs and MIAs until they all come home.

“Making poppies take care of income needs while I’m looking for part-time work. It has a pretty big meaning and it’s really good therapy time. It’s something I can do with my hands and take a sense of pride and accomplishment in.” – Matt Armistead, U.S. Army, 1981-1990

Today is recognized as National Law Enforcement Appreciation Day. We want to take the opportunity to say thank you to every law enforcement officer across the nation for getting up and putting on the uniform day in and day out. Each day you report for duty there is no guarantee you will make it home but you go anyways. You see the very worst of humanity but on the flip side, you get to be a part of some extremely amazing things also. If you see an officer today tell them thank you because they don't hear it nearly often enough.
From everyone at VFW District 2 to all Law Enforcement Personnel…THANK YOU!💙
