News- no longer a BBQ but still great music and food. Good news- there's no charge to attend the Hope for the Hurting event at VFW Post 9274 this Saturday, 12pm to 3pm. BETTER NEWS- door prizes include a gift from Sisler Stones, free one-month gym membership, massages, and restaurant gift certificates.

Dear Post Commander,

With the support of Chris Mulholland (Post 2894) and many others, I completed a book entitled *The Long Journey home: The Untold Story of Forgotten Soldiers. *The* *book, which took me 6.5 years to write, was based on a 2014 AP class project that changed the lives of my students. It is the story of how a diverse group of post-millenials rediscovered their local history and had a better understanding of the cost of war. They went beyond the learning objectives and developed relationships with Gold Star families that changed their lives. Reading these student tributes will bless your members. Here is the link:

“When the peace treaty is signed, the war isn't over for the veterans, or the family. It's just starting.”. — Karl Marlantes

The VFW was established to assist veterans. Our mission is to foster camaraderie among United States veterans of overseas conflicts and to serve our veterans, the military and our communities and advocate on behalf of all veterans. The purposes of the Veterans of Foreign Wars of the United States are fraternal, patriotic, historical, charitable, and educational; to preserve and strengthen comradeship among its members; to assist worthy comrades; to perpetuate the memory and history of our dead, and to assist their surviving spouses and orphans; to maintain true allegiance to the Government of the United States of America, and fidelity to its institutions of American freedom, and to preserve and defend the United States from all her enemies.
