June Commander’s Call

AMVETS Commander
Bob O’Hare

Now that school is out, be aware of all the kids out enjoying their activities and those traveling on motorcycles.

The AMVETS family lost two members in May- Duane Huisman and Marvin Walston. We send our condolences to the families of these two veterans. We also send condolences to the Ray Mehmen family. Ray was often at the WAVP for meals and socializing.

Wednesday, June 13th we will be voting for officers. Please give serious consideration of putting your name in for one of these positions.

I would like to say Thank You to everybody that volunteered to make Memorial Day a great success. It takes a volunteers to set up Flanders Field, place grave markers and flags, and to set up the Avenue of Flags. The service at Kohlmann Park for the Navy Veterans lost at sea, the parade to Harlington Cemetery, the Speakers, the 21 gun salute, and the playing of Taps is a deserving tribute to those that have paid the ultimate price serving our Country so that we may remain “The Home of the Brave”.

My highest regards goes out to Jim and Valerie Mormann for the time and dedication for the gift of the “Guardian” (stained glass window) that is a welcome addition to the chapel. Also, to John Mohlis for the his time and talents building the stand and frame. This addition to the chapel is a “must see”.

The AMVETS steak fry will be June 23rd. If anyone would like to work a steak fry, give Carl and Wanda Benning (352-3012) or Bob and Sally O’Hare (404-2411) a call and we will work with you to show you how it is done. They are a lot of fun.

I would like to invite everyone to come down to the WAVP for all of the activities and have a good time. Bring your friends. There is something going on for everyone.

Bob O’Hare

Commander Post #79 Waverly, Iowa
