Larry Phillips - 12/2/2023


The Holidays are fast approaching.  2023 has been another stellar year for our post. I take pride in our many accomplishments again this year.

Once again we are on track to being an All-State Post.  And hopefully, we will be able to obtain All-American Post again for the fourth year in a row.

This is a great feat for a post our size.  I urge all members to recruit just one new member.

I'm looking forward to more great times in the coming year.  Thanks to all who make my job as Post Commander and enjoyable one.


Have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.


Commander Larry
