O C T O B E R VFW N e w s l e t t e r
Dear Comrades Now that the summer is over, its time to dedicate our efforts and work at recruiting new members to the Post. The survival of military organizations depends upon attracting new membership and “we” are just not looking for members, but we would also like to include their families as well. Our veterans have made and kept this nation the greatest nation in the world, so lets not forget those who supported them in times of crises, but in the good times as well. Part of this recruiting effort should also include increasing our Booster membership; again, the veterans can’t do it alone, the community has to be involved. Remember that our comrade, Bill Meisel is very ill with congestive heart failure, so lets keep him in our prayers. Please ask one of the officers for a visiting schedule. Not to much to report but in closing, keep our troops in your prayers till they are all home with their loved ones. GOD BLESS AMERICA UNITED WE STAND Artie Vecchio. Commander
