COMMANDERS CORNER

Commander Youngblood here:

 

Well, summer is here in full force.  As we have seen during the last month, hot weather and heavy rains have already caused problems for our families, friends and neighbors.  Let’s keep watch on each other for problems arising from these conditions and be ready to lend a helping hand.

The 122nd VFW National Convention is scheduled for 31 July-3 August 2021 right here in Kansas City.  If you have never been to a VFW Convention, now is the time to plan.  This year and next year, the Convention will be here in Kansas City.  It is an exciting time to see what the new leadership will unveil as their programs for the upcoming year.  Various vendors that support Veterans and Veterans Groups will be set up to allow you to see what they are doing to help Veterans.

We lost one of our "Rocks” this last month. Comrade Sammie Rhoades passed, and was buried on the 29th of June.  He followed Comrades Jerry McGill and Mike Wyatt who passed earlier this year. Til’ Vallhala, Comrades.

Comrade Larry Phillips (Quartermaster, Post 5789, and Department Judge Advocate) has announced he will be running for the position of Department Surgeon next year (2022-2023 fiscal year).  Let’s show him our support.  With multiple past Department Commanders, and the current Department Commander, Post 5789 continues to be an advocate for our Veterans.

The following is the information for Zoom for our next meeting (14 July):
