Commanders Comments Posted November 30, 2016

Comrades and Families,

As we come to close out another year I look back and see all that we have accomplished for our Veterans.  Raising awareness for suicide prevention is probably the one that strikes me as the most important effort that we can say that not enough is being done.  Holidays are usually not good times for those who have some issues, which makes this time of year more troublesome for those who try to help but can't.  We learned at our last meeting on how to spot Veterans in need.  Let's take what we know and reach out to those whose family may be struggling or to those who may need a handshake and a "glad to see ya".  We will probably never know how something so small and insignificant may be the turning point in someone's life.

Joe Wolsey, Commander VFW Post #3838

The Commander and Auxiliary President will be in their respective offices every Monday night.

From Our Auxiliary President 

Dear Auxiliary Member,

That time of year again when the weather is turning and the parties are going.  We all need to take a moment and remember the reason we are in this organization.  Our Veterans need our support and love.  If you have the time, even just an hour, please donate it to the Veterans Home, a nursing home or just make phone calls to say "Hi, how's it going? Do you need anything?"  Time is going so fast and before we know it 2017 is here.

The Auxiliary is extending a warm welcome to the Men's Auxiliary to join us December 12th at the Auxiliary Christmas Event where we eat and exchange gifts.  Also we are inviting the Men's Auxiliary to join the Auxiliary 1/2 price for the months of December and January.  This was passed in our last meeting.  Please fill out an application so that we can vote and except you into this growing Auxiliary, we have the same goals and the various talents to make this Auxiliary the best in Missouri, and the nation.  Have a Merry Christmas, Happy New Year and thank you for a great 2016.

If you need a calendar emailed to you or even in a text, just let me know; sandy.prichard@yahoo.com or 573-576-6317. 

Respectfully Yours,

Sandy Prichard, Auxiliary President
