The U.S. Army is made up of the most dedicated, most respected soldiers in the world. These soldiers protect America's Freedoms while serving at home and abroad, and they are always prepared to defend the nation in times of need.
We are soldiers of the sea, providing forces and detachments to naval ships and shore operations. We are global leaders, developing expeditionary doctrine and innovations that set the example, and leading other countries' forces and agencies in the multinational military operations. These unique capabilities make us "First to Fight", and our nations first line of defense.
America's Navy is a force as relevant today as it's been historically significan for the last 238 years. The times may change, the threats may become more obscure, the complex nature of 21st century life may make the demand for such presence less obvious. However, now more than ever, the Navy is something to be aware of Something to be thankful for. Something to be proud of.
Air Force has a vision of Global Vigilance, Reach and Power. That vision orbits around three core competencies: developing airmen, technology to war fighting and integrating operations. These core competencies make our six distinctive capabilities possible.
We protect the personal safety and security of our people; the marine transportation system and infrastructure; our natural and economic resources; and the territorial integrity of our nation-from both internal and external threats, natural and man-made.

Thanks to all who helped make the 123rd Annual VFW National Convention a great success. Eric Sullivan and his crew did a fantastic job with Registration.
Jerry Youngblood got to be Senior Vice Commander Duane Sarmiento’s driver for the Convention.
I had the pleasure of working with a hardworking crew of Comrades and Auxiliary members as VIP drivers. They made runs to the airport and made sure they were delivered to the hall on time for the appearances on stage. Post 5789 members included James Neighbors, Kris Haddock, and Chuck Stephenson. A hearty Thank You goes out to them and all the other volunteers from the 5th District, The 3rdDistrict and across the State. A special thank you to the Auxiliary members who volunteered. Your presence made a difference and was positively commented on.
I hope to have a discussion about the Convention and what changes are coming. The August meeting will be August 10, 2022 at 7:00pm. Hope to see you there.
Don’t forget we host Karaoke on Friday nights with Lisa and Saturday nights with Gary. We also host a Corn Hole tournament on Monday nights. Join us for the fun.
