Commanders Comments Posted October 3, 2016
Comrades and Families,
I recently got the opportunity to meet a Veteran with a service dog. He was very open to discuss the opportunities available to our Veterans when it comes to qualifying for that type of assistance. His wait was about 16 months including the 3 weeks of training he had to take to be able to use a service dog. He also told me that there are some organizations out there who are not certified to train animals for service and to be diligent in doing research for properly trained and certified animals. These service animals are not pets, they are working and sometimes have specific uses and reasons for being there. Seeing this Veteran and his service dog together gives me confidence that our Vets are getting the help they need.

The Commander and Auxiliary President will be in their respective offices every Monday night.
From Our Auxiliary President
Dear Auxiliary Member,
It's time again to remind all continuous (annual) members to please pay your $25.00 dues as soon as possible for the year 2017. Also want to let everyone know who was not in the meeting September 12th that Chicken and Dumpling tickets are on sale; we are wanting to sell tickets in advance so that we do not run out of Dumplings. The tickets are $8.00 for one trip through the line, $10.00 for trip through plus extra bowl of Dumplings and $12.00 for ALL YOU CAN EAT. Last year we had several people wanting more than two bowls of dumplings so please purchase a $12.00 ticket. This event is November 6th from 12PM to 4PM. Next meeting will be October 10th, we will be discussing the Trunk or Treat scheduled for October 31st, Halloween. Several Auxiliary members will have their vehicles parked on the parking lot at the Post and have children trick or treat from car to car. This will be from 6 pm to 8pm, the lot is well lit and we will have adults available to make sure all are safe. If many of you follow Facebook you can find our page and see events that are coming up. I post regularly on the Auxiliary page as well as the Post page, just type in the search field VFW Post 3838 and VFW Post 3838 Auxiliary. Holidays will be upon us and we hope to see more and more members at the Post. If you need a calendar emailed to you or even in a text, just let me know; firstname.lastname@example.org or 573-576-6317.
Bless you all,
Sandy Prichard, Auxiliary President
