Commander’s Corner (April 2024)

At our post’s “Welcome Home” Vietnam Veterans Recognition Social on March 21, we witnessed an evening of heartfelt connection and healing. We saw firsthand the power of giving our Vietnam veterans the recognition they’ve long deserved. The event was a reminder of their sacrifices and the importance of honoring all who serve, no matter the conflict.

Some shared emotional stories, revealing the deep scars left by their service and the harsh reception they faced upon returning home. These moments underscored our duty to separate the warrior from the war, affirming our commitment to respect and support ALL veterans.

I’m grateful for everyone who contributed to making the evening memorable, especially our Vietnam veterans, and Colt, owner of neighboring Luna’s Landing Dog Care, whose catering added warmth to our gathering.

To all who served: We stand with you, yesterday, today, and always.

In comradeship,
Aly Teeter, Commander
