Commander's Message


     Hello spring and good bye winter, right?  Even though we have had a very unseasonable spring, summer really is just around the corner.  We are already starting to see the blossoms of nature and warm breezes but we also know anything is possible with our North Country weather.  Hopefully all of our Snowbirds have made it back safe and sound and we are very happy to have you back.

     May and June are very busy with plenty of activities to take part in. May 9th is the Rider’s dinner that promises to be nothing less than spectacular.  May 21st is the Armed Forces Day Parade and we are always looking for those who would like to participate.  We are looking for folks that would like to march in the parade and we do have rides for those who can’t walk the entire way.  We would love to have you sign up at the club and we will get you a spot reserved. 

     Monday, May 30th we will be celebrating Memorial Day with a short service here at the VFW at 9:00 am. We will then join the American Legion Post 61 for another service followed by lunch at Post 61.

     Make sure to mark your calendar for Saturday, June 4th. That will be our Chicken BBQ with two varieties of chicken to choose from.  Sunday, June 12th is when we will celebrate Flag Day and will be properly disposing of US American Flags that are no longer fit for display. Flags may be dropped off at Post 1400 prior to that date for disposal.

     Congratulations to our newly elected officers for the 2022-2023 year.  I am sure that you will be successful as Post 1400 has a very supportive and active membership, Auxiliary and Rider Group.

     Please keep our troops and their families in your prayers.


“When you ask a Veteran when they were last ‘over there’, know that in many cases, the real answer is ‘Every Night’.”
