For more than 90 years, the VFW's Buddy Poppy program as raised millions of dollars in support or veterans' welfare and the well-being of their dependents.

With over 10 times the amount of veterans lost to suicide than to combat operations in the same time period, there has never been a more important time to TAKE A STAND and DO something to support our veterans!!

Our Commander is pleased to announce that our post is once again an All American Post! We appreciate everyone that assisted with our various requirements, expecially for the major push by Brian Frank and Heather Bennington on membership.

Patriotism consists not in waving the flag, but in striving that our country shall be righteous as well as strong.
That from these honored dead we take increased devotion to that cause for which they gave the last full measure of devotion—that we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain—that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom—and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth. - President Abraham Lincoln
