Meetings are now on the first and third Wednesdays each month and start promptly at 7 p.m. The Post is usually open by about 6 p.m. Please attend a meeting soon. Food is usually served after each meeting.
Our annual Armed Forces cookout at the Post Home is scheduled for Sunday, May 16, 2021 from 4 to 6 p.m. Hamburgers, brats, potato salad, chips and other fixings are available. This is a family event and only a free will offering is suggested. We've always broke even at these events so it cost the Post nothing.
Post 1038's annual Buddy Poppy Campaign was May 27-29, 2021 at the Lake Hallie Walmart and both Chippewa area Family Fare grocery stores. It was a cold and rainy start, but the results were the best ever! Area residents were all very generous this year. All proceeds are placed in our Veterans Relief Fund.
You were not alone over there. You are not alone now. There are 20 million veterans who would give their lives for you. Please don't take yours.
Ask not what your country can do for you, ask you can do for your country.
That from these honored dead we take increased devotion to that cause for which they gave the last full measure of devotion—that we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain—that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom—and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth. - President Abraham Lincoln
Don't forget to bring a dish to pass!
