Commander’s Call

Our commander, Ron, lost his wife earlier in November. Please keep him and the rest of the family in your prayers as they work through this difficult time. His message of last month still holds true: Recruit!!!

Recruiting, I hope you all know what that is and are doing some. For those needing to renew for 2020, please send dues to AMVETS Box 93 Waverly, Iowa 50677 by December 31th.

We need members in all the units we are eligible to join. As veterans we must work together and help get the job done.

RECRUIT! RECRUIT! RECRUIT!

Thank you. Ron Home # 319 276 4662 Cell # 319 290 6762.

AMVETS Ladies Auxiliary #79

The AMVETS ladies Auxiliary would like to invite you to their annual Holiday Hors D Oeuvres Party, December 19th starting at 5:30. This is open to all members, VFW American Legion, and Marine Corps. Bring a dish to share and join us in a night of fun and fellowship. Maybe Santa will show up early! So be good.

Christmas, the season of giving and rejoicing, make time for yourself and consider taking a few hours to spend time with someone in a care facility or one that lives alone. Your gift of time will bring joy and happiness and doesn’t cost a thing. Here’s wishing you all a wonder Christmas and a Blessed NEW YEAR. Cheers.

God, our Creator, we offer this humble prayer on Christmas Day. We come to worship with a song of thanks in our hearts—a song of redemption, a song of hope and renewal. We pray for joy in our hearts, hope in our God, love to forgive, and peace upon the earth. We ask for the salvation of all our family members and friends, and we pray your blessings on all people. May there be bread for the hungry, love for the unlovable, healing for the sick, protection for our children, and wisdom for our youth. We pray for the forgiveness of sinners and abundant life in Christ. Holy Spirit, fill our hearts with your love and power. In the name of Jesus Christ we pray. Amen.

–Rev. Lia Icaza Willetts

Commander’s Call

Well here we go again. Since I’ve been elected your commander I couldn’t figure out what this Commanders call is. It finally came to me. It seems that every time I need to write one of these I get a call from Mary J Steinbach thus the Commanders call.

I want to thank everyone who came to the membership meal. It was a great time and so was the food. I was able to meet a lot of you that I didn’t know before. I’m sure the ones that weren’t there were out recruiting. Yes, recruiting. I hope you all know what that is and are doing some. For those needing to renew for 2020, please send dues to AMVETS Box 93 Waverly, Iowa 50677 by December 31th.

I’m going to engage in a little trivia. Does anyone know anything about the name Alfred Bernhard? I’m not going to wait for your answer. Those of you that were at the meeting on the 9th remember about my old granny and the big impression she made at her passing. Well it seems Alfred Bernhard left this earth in a bigger way. Parts of him are buried in 5 different states. He was the inventor EXPLOSIVES.

Besides recruiting new members for the AMVETS I want all of you to consider a membership to the AMERICAN LEGION, MCL, or the VFW if you are eligible. Those of you that weren’t eligible before please check out current eligibility and don’t hold a grudge. Life is too short for that. Eligibilities have changed for many organizations so please find out if you qualify. The yearly membership dues are minimal and won’t break anyone. We need members in all the units we are eligible to join. As veterans we must work together and help get the job done.

RECRUIT! RECRUIT! RECRUIT!

Thank you. Ron Home # 319 276 4662 Cell # 319 290 6762.

To Feel Honored
“God, please let every veteran of our nation’s armed forces feel truly and appropriately honored by the attention and appreciation of their fellow citizens. Let no one feel forgotten or neglected. Let every man and woman, young or old, feel the deep and enduring gratitude of our nation and its inhabitants.”

 To Be Understood
“You know that it can be difficult for a person who has returned from battle or stressful military service to reintegrate into ‘normal’ everyday life. You know that veterans can feel isolated and alone even in the midst of their  friends and  families because there are few around who understand their experience. So I ask You to place in the path of our veterans those who do understand (or strive to), that they may feel less alone. Remind them often that while their fellow human beings may never fully comprehend, You see, You know and You identify with them in everything.”

To Be Healed
“Lord, You know how deep a warrior’s wounds go. You know the loss that many of our veterans in body and soul. You know the memories that haunt them and the scars that many of them continue to carry.  Please bring healing to those veterans who still hurt. Please grant patience and wisdom to those around them who cannot understand but can sometimes help the healing process. Please apply both natural and supernatural medicine to their wounds.”

4) To Be Rewarded
“Father, please turn your gaze to those men and women who in their military service have sacrificed time, comfort, strength, ambition, health and prosperity for the peace and safety of family and friends and others they’ve never even known. Please reward them a hundredfold for all their sacrifice and service. Bless them far beyond all their expectations. Reward them richly for all they have given.”

 To Know You
“Almighty God, You know every veteran by name. You know their deeds, their hard work, and their perseverance. You know their needs, both material and spiritual. Please draw each one closer to you and grant them all the peace that passes understanding (Philippians 4:7), the peace of Christ to rule in their hearts (Colossians 3:15), and ‘joy in your presence, with eternal pleasures at your right hand’ forevermore (Psalm 16:11).”
