Commander’s Column

 

August 2016

Hello Comrades,

Things at the Post seem to be going well. We had a nice visit from Senator McCain this month. It was truly an honor for me!

Our Sr. Vice Commander Harry Oberg Prescott City Mayor) is proposing a proclamation to declare Aug. 6 as Vietnam Veterans Day in Prescott. That’s pretty cool. I sure hope that passes!

Please check out our calendar of events. We have been having dinners every Wednesday but participation seems to be dropping off a bit.  So let’s all get down there and support OUR POST!!
