The mission of the Veterans of Foreign Wars of the United States is to preserve and support the patriotic and historical interests of our country, our communities and our veterans; to strengthen the common bonds of the men and women who have served and who are currently serving in our military; to assist them and their families to enhance their quality of life; to maintain true allegiance to the Constitution and laws of the United States of America and defend her from all enemies, whomsoever.
As your 2022-2023 Commander, first and foremost I am humbled and honored beyond words for my gratitude for this priceless opportunity. I value each of you in our post and your VFW membership. If you’re not a member and are exploring our site I extend a warm welcome and if you’re eligible for membership we would be truly honored to have you as a fellow Comrade in our Post.
A little background about myself is that I served in the Army for 32 years achieving the rank of Sergeant Major. I served as a Senior Network Communications NCO having deployed to Somalia, Kosovo, Bosnia, Iraq, and Afghanistan.
Many of our goals throughout this year will take on a variety of challenges. However, this will not affect our drive to continue to support our veteran population and expand our efforts toward these achievements.
We must stay vigilant to the task and true to our goals of the VFW. For every veteran that comes to our doorstep, a solution must be at hand in all the traditions and valor of the VFW. We are veterans helping veterans and we must be their best source for help, assistance, and leadership.
I now call on all the members of VFW Post 3892 to make this year and all the years to follow the best progressive years of our generation so we can proudly pass the “baton” to our future comrades with pride and exemplary traditions of the VFW. Please take time to consider future Post positions and committee nominations that will become, and are still, available so we can experience the diversity of skills offered by our existing membership.
