I was on Honor Flight #16. I want to thank you for hosting our dinner. Had a good time meeting your veteran's. Very nice post. Oorah Semper Fi John
You guys done a excellent job hosting us this weekend Job well done!
One of the most unique American legions I’ve been to, and I have been to quite a few. Great people, great food, great facility, and a truly great experience!🇺🇸
WELCOME TO AMERICA AGAIN
Members voted last night to ban cigar smoking within the Post Home. Discussion precipitated a motion, tabled until May, to ban all smoking! Maybe soulda let sleeping dogs lie. (To leave a situation alone so as to avoid worsening it.)
I can't recommend seeing "They Shall Not Grow Old" enough. It's a documentary using 100 year old World War 1 film and modern techniques to colorize it and give it sound.
Just wanted to take a few seconds and voice my disgust and disappointment in Roger Harris , the Spotsylvania County, Virginia Sheriff. I’ve been a biker for about 15 years now, and I have participated in many types of rides. Many of those were escorted by the county sheriffs departments. Not once has a sheriffs dept ever “charged” for providing escorts. And especially for a memorial ride for a local fallen warrior in which the Gold Star Mother flew in for. They are asking for approx. $1000.00 for providing 6 total escorts during the ride. In my eyes and many others, this was a big kick in the face to the Gold Star family and the rest of us there to support this effort. For anyone in that area that will be voting during the elections, he is up for re-election, you know the deal! I was told by a source close to the sheriffs department that if you post anything against him or the dept on their Facebbok page, they will promptly remove it. So I will not only post it on their page, I will also be posting it on as many veterans sites that I can. Their page link is below https://www.facebook.com/SpotsySO/ Understanding that they just recently implemented this new policy of charging for escorts. This ride was planned about 6 months ago before they implemented the policy. Due to Hurricane Michael, the ride had to be rescheduled. This should have been grandfathered at a minimum. And don’t get this wrong, I nor the people involved were asking for any special consideration or favors…..this is one of those things that should just be done out of respect. I assure you that they will not charge for a fallen LEO ride or any other rides that may be beneficial to political needs. And for the record, I have participated in MANY fallen LEO and LEO Charity rides in support of our Brothers and Sisters in Blue, nothing but respect from myself and many veterans out there. Let’s also realize that the majority of these LEO’s would do this on their off time, and I’ve had quite a few that did. These officers weren’t afforded that choice to make by their highers. So with all that said, the sheriff from the adjacent county said to bring it over there, he would never charge for an escort. So the ride will be conducted in another county next year. Roger Harris is up for election here soon, please visit his page and let him know your opinion on this. And please spread this to as many Vet organizations that we can. Thank you for taking the time to read this. SAPPER 7, OUT!
