Next Post Meeting:

 As most know we lost a Comrade on January 2, 2022.  James Neighbors passed away peacefully after a short terminal illness.  To say he will be missed is an understatement.  Please keep James' family in your thoughts and prayer.

On a much happier note, the Post has achieved 100%+ membership as of December 30, 2022. We are on track to earning All-State and All-American Post this year.  Great work by all Post members to achieve this status.

Hope to see everyone at the Monthly meeting on January 11th at 7:00pm.
