Where did you serve and what did you do?
HAWKINS-REEVE ALL-AMERICAN POST 7916 OCCOQUAN VIRGINIA MEMBERS ARE REAL “WARRIORS STILL SERVING”
Post members have been fully engaged in advancing our mission of “Honoring the Dead by Helping the Living”. We have provided and delivered food to the needy, are making health and welfare checks for Post members, Post members on the Occoquan PD are making health & welfare checks for all Occoquan residents, provided protective masks to local medical facilities, provided scuba diving masks from a member’s dive shop for conversion to COVID-19 ventilator masks, one of our members is part of the Veterans Administration leader team to protect veterans from COVID-19, another member is on the Department of Homeland Security leader team fighting COVID-19, as well as one of our members is running the Occoquan “Good News Community Kitchen”. Today, a Navy Nurse Post member is onboard the USNS Comfort. This 1,000-bed floating hospital arrived on station at New York City in response to the COVID-19 pandemic currently attacking our nation. We are fortunate to have these Post Members and VFW members all over the world defending us and our families today. Bravo Zulu. Jeff Lett, Commanding
