Sunday June 20 from 10-12 Cars & Coffee at VFW Post 4353
FROM OUR COMMANDER'S DESK TOM FERGUSON
What does it mean? Those who are Marines know the meaning, Semper Fidelis, Always Faithful. Always faithful to what you ask. The VFW is made up of many different diverse personalities and attitudes, but the focus should never waver from God, Country, and Honor. Being faithful to the mission of the VFW is our paramount goal. The cooperation between the Auxiliary and the VFW is what makes the Post successful and contributes to the motto "No One Does More for Veterans". The recent election of new leadership has allowed the Post to focus more on this mission and I would like to introduce the new officers of the VFW Post 4353.
Post Commander: Tom Ferguson, Senior Vice: Joe Bell, Jr. Vice: Casey Vandenberg, Quartermaster: Vicki Duflo, Chaplin: Richard DiBuono, Trustees: Gary Lufriu, George Bailey and Cliff Bruner, Service Officer: Rebeca Brown, Surgeon:Ashley Carr.
Post 4353 will continue to remain faithful to the VFW and what it represents and together with the Auxiliary we will accomplish this.
Our Post is celebrating our 50th year of existence and we have come a long way with many more good years yet to come.
This year we once again became a Florida ALL-State Post which makes us one of the elites in the VFW nationwide! It has been over 15 years since this was last achieved by our Post. I am incredibly grateful for all the volunteers that have continue to make good things happen at the Post. They have remained faithful and I believe they always will be.
Memorial Day will be a chance to Remember and Honor those who have fallen in defense of our great country as well as ALL that come before us and are serving today. Together we will make this a great event.
June 14 the American Legion Post 136 will hold a dignified flag retirement event.
