Commanders Comments Posted January 4, 2017

Comrades and Families,

A new year to start over again.  With new and interesting opportunities to challenge us as we move into 2017.  With the new changes for the Post Men's Auxiliary, it's sad to see this organization disbanded.  What a positive influence they have had in this organization.  Hopefully the crossover into one auxiliary will be one without too much stress.  I do know that some have already crossed over with more yet to take the opportunity.  I can see this auxiliary being the leader in the state and possibly setting the example for all Posts in the Department of Missouri.

Yours in Service,

Joe Wolsey, Commander VFW Post #3838

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