Where did you serve and what did you do?
Post and auxiliary members gathered together on May 7, 2022. We decided that the highway that our post is located on was in bad shape due to the amount of trash on the sides of the highway. Therefore, we walked a mile from the post and collected all the litter. In just that 1 mile, we collected 300 pounds of trash.
In April, we bought and collected $250 in new toys, blankets, and games to donate to the Child Advocacy Center for abused children.
On Mar 30th VFW Post and Auxiliary hosted a Vietnam Veterans’ Appreciation Lunch. About 50 VVs attended along with other veterans and family for a total of 100 people. Rolling Thunder NC-1, also members of the post, conducted the POW/MIA table program.
How are you #StillServing?
Members of post 670, serve on many of the local civic boards, volunteer at the Airborne Museum, with the Cumberland County Guardian ad Litem program, feed the homeless, Wreaths Across America, other local nonprofit organizations, and visit with veterans in the hospital.
Why do you do it?
We do it because it helps our community, as well as the Veterans. When veterans gather together to help someone else, we don’t focus on what’s wrong with us, or how aggravated we are that something has went wrong, and we don’t feel alone. Regardless of the amount of people who show up, we come together and work as a team, focusing on how to get the job done to the best of our ability. Along the way we meet people, make connections, share ideas, and just try to relax and enjoy the camaraderie.
