Comrades & Sisters:

I want to thank everyone for allowing me to be your Commander the last two years. We have all seen this Post grow leaps and bounds, because of good officers and members who really care about this Post. Our Post just made All State and All American again this year and I know Commander Coleman will get us to that point again next year.

May God Bless you all ,

Jim McClure
Past Commander

———————————————————

Well, the time is finally here for me to write my first article as Commander. I want to thank the officers going out for all that they have done.

I thought, as I wrote this, that I would reflect on the past few years. I truly believe that the last two years have been the best that this Post has ever had. We raised more money, did more projects, helped more people and did more for our community than anytime that I can think of. The reason that we were able to accomplish most of this is due to our outgoing Commander, Jim McClure. I congratulate Jim for doing an outstanding job and I encourage all of you to do the same.

Jim and I recently attended the State VFW Convention in Indianapolis. Our Post won several awards that should be displayed around the Post.

I look forward to serving you over the next year and hope to leave my successor in as good of shape as Past Commander McClure has left us. Thank you for your confidence in me and let’s all work together for another great year.

Red Coleman
Commander VFW 2749
