181 BSB Change of Command

Post presents adoption certificate

Quartermaster Harold Hamilton (second from left) and Post 3063 Adopt-A-Unit Coordinator, Alexander Salazar (second from right), presented the Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW)’s official Adopt-A-Unit certificate to the Washington National Guard’s 181st Brigade Support Battalion Command Sergeant Major, Troy Martin (left), and Battalion Executive Officer, Maj. Chaz Bantle (right) on April 13, 2024.

Previously we adopted two 181 companies but felt compelled to adopt the entire unit since there was interest from both the Guard and VFW leadership for providing more support. Over the course of the previous year, we participated in a variety of events with the 181, including a static display at our post at our Armed Forces Day social and Veterans Day Open House. In addition, their leadership attended our fundraiser and the Post 3063 commander attended their Trunk or Treat event at the Interbay installation. We also hosted a holiday party and donated relief fund money to another party.

Post 3063 is offering a scholarship to deserving soldiers as part of our effort to strengthen ties with the unit. We look forward to offering continued support to the unit’s soldiers and families as we head into the next VFW year!
