Calling all members, family and community. The Ladies Auxiliary has asked for all of our help to make this journey a success. They have adopted troops on the USS Makin Island whom will be out of country for the next year. The post and LA will be collecting and gathering donations for care packages and phone cards for the troops. Attached is a list of items that the troops are requesting. The LA will have boxes at the post to donate old cell phones and requested items at the post. These phones will be exchanged for phone time for the troops. For further details talk to your LA members and help us make this a success. These young troops are defending our freedom.
May 26th 2014 the Chandler VFW will be holding a flag raising ceremony at 12:00. Come join us in honoring our fallen comrades and bring the family. The post will be serving hot dogs and hamburgers, feel free to bring a dessert or side dish if you would like. Please be sure to check the CALENDAR for upcoming events and dinners.
Sacrifice is meaningless without remembrance. America’s collective consciousness demands that all citizens recall and be aware of the deaths of their fellow countrymen during wartime.
