No One Does More For Veterans

Commander's Update

HAPPY SPRING, everyone!! I, for one, am ready for some sunshine (as sporadic as it can be at this time) and longer days!! With the whole state going into the Governor's "Phase III,” I hope Posts are taking advantage of it and getting members to show for meetings! If you were unable to navigate Zoom, being able to hold an "in-person” meeting is that much more important for your membership. Please, reach out to them and let them know that you’re "back in business,” so to speak. It’ll be great to see what all the Posts have coming up in the near future!!

Speaking of "future,” our 100 Year Anniversary "Roaring 20’s” Gala is a GO!!!! Invitations will be going out soon, as we are limited, still, with the number of people, we can have at the venue. It will be held at McChord AFB at the McChord Club on May 8th at 1700hrs. More details to follow.

If you haven’t taken a look at the March VFW Magazine, you need to at least take a look at the story on page 23!!! It is a FANTASTIC article about one of our own members; Kerri Jeter from Tenino Post 5878 and what she has been doing with her podcast "Freedom Sisters Media.” Not so little-known fact (after you read the article:) Comrade Kerri was crowned Ms. Veteran America in 2015!!! It is so inspiring to read about one of our own accomplishing a mission so near and dear to them. Way to represent not only we female Veterans but ALL Veterans and the VFW, Kerri!!!

Another female Veteran that has seen a vision and responded to it is one of my Post members, Monique Brown. Monique saw a need for homeless Veterans and started FOB Hope. It is remarkable what she has done with this vision!!! These are just two examples of what we as Veterans can accomplish, and be that impact needed in the Veteran community.

I end this update with a huge thank you to those Posts that have already hit 100%!! COVID may have hit us hard, but it didn’t knock us out. We are still as strong and viable of an organization as ever, and we will maintain this strength with members like you, the ones in the trenches, doing the great works of the VFW.
