VFW Post 4938 jumps into action to create connections by helping others
Members of VFW Post 4938 in Edmond, Oklahoma, are always available to help fellow veterans — and anyone else in need — no matter the task at hand.
“Our dedicated veterans continue to support a variety of VFW programs and their local community,” said Junior Vice Commander Bradly Blume.
For the inaugural VFW National Day of Service, the Post organized a food drive, benefitting the Hope Center of Edmond to help individuals facing hardship.
More recently, after learning about a local Iraq veteran who needed a space for his new service dog, the Post stepped up.
“Members jumped into action and quickly organized volunteers and supplies to make sure the veteran and his canine companion had what they needed,” said Blume. “Our Post believes that opportunities like this one are amazing ways to build, strengthen and preserve comradeship among members, local veterans and the community.”
In addition to these acts of service, VFW Post 4938 stands up for veterans’ rights and American values. For instance, members led a flag retirement ceremony as part of the Fourth of July Liberty Fest. And before the Senate voted on the historic PACT Act, the Post encouraged people to contact local politicians to ensure the bill passed.
Reflecting on recent efforts, Blume said, “this Post truly proves that no one does more for veterans than the VFW!” The VFW is proud to honor Post 4938 and its members who are #StillServing.
If you’re a veteran with a #StillServing story to share, we want to hear from you.
