COMMANDER’S CORNER:  Bob Smith, Commander

VFW 3383 is our Post, earned by the sweat of our “tour of duty.” Mike Bilich (a great friend of the Post) has repeatedly advised me “For the good of the Post.” If we can overcome personalities, quirks and habits of each other, the Post will thrive. We need to keep our VFW Programs, and Post, alive and well. Come on down to support the Canteen, functions and programs. We have too much competition outside of the Post and really need to think of the Post as a fraternal group, our extended family  -- a place to come for citizenship, good will, friendship and fun. Let’s visit each other at the Post.
