A Moment With The Commander
Commander Larry Taylor
  Hope everyone is enjoying our fall weather with all of the beautiful leaf changing and hope, too, that you have a great Thanksgiving.
   Think about winter safety for yourself and your family. Please be alert and aware when walking or driving on snow and ice. Slow down and allow more time in your travels. You may also want to consider slowing down when shoveling snow – none of us are as young as we used to be.
   Welcome to all of our new members in our Post Family. I hope to see all of you at the Post and enjoying the company of so many great people.
   Let us always keep our men and women in harm’s way in our thoughts and prayers for their safe return home.
   Thanks to all of our volunteers for keeping the Post in great condition; helping at our steak fry dinners; and in all of the many ways that we may never hear about.
   Don’t forget Christmas with the (Big Guy) coming up. I understand he plans to visit us soon.
   Hope to see all of you soon!

Tickets will be on sale until the drawing during the OSU/Michigan game Saturday, November 25. All pictures are framed and matted. First prize is a picture of Woody Hayes wearing a short sleeve shirt on the side lines in a snow storm; second is a picture of David Boston (still holds the all-time reception record for Ohio State with 191 catches) and this is paired with a picture of the OSU/Arizona St score board (20 to 17) David Boston caught the game winning touchdown with 19 seconds left. Third place is a hand written copy of Carmen Ohio signed by the composer, Fred Cornell. According to local legend, he composed it on the train ride home from Ann Arbor after Ohio State suffered on 86-0 loss to the Michigan Wolverines in 1902.
   We will pull the winners at the Michigan vs OSU game.

   I have had some great visits with veterans in retirement and care facilities. Mike and Pat Poole say “Hi” to everyone. I have also visited with a veteran named Wayne Wenzinger who has moved here from Missouri.
  I would encourage you to stop at one of these facilities and visit with these veterans and their families. They really appreciate seeing us whether we are old friends, or – perhaps a new friend.
   We would also like to have a few more members of our Honor Guard. Male or female – it is not a full time job just participate when you can. Talk to Jim Thorpe he will provide the details.

I need your help to gather information for our activities report. Many of you take part in important activities we should include in our reports: Youth activities; POW/MIA awareness; Hospital activities; Americanism; Community activities and involvement; Safety activities, etc. The list is too long to fully describe here. Volunteer activities, giving blood, are examples. Contact me with questions, or for clarification. Thanks in advance. Raytom48@att.net or service officer@4931.org

                                    We have our local students to thank for all of the fantastic cards and letters delivered to our post showing their appreciation of our veterans and active military. The above is an example we thought says it all.
