How are you #StillServing?
As the Lounge Manager of our Alpena VFW Post #2496, I joined hands with a group of our members lead by our Post Commander Louis Dudus in making phone calls to our members who are likely to be affected by COVID-19, to see if they needed any assistance in shopping, pharmacy pickups, or errands like taking them to an appointment.
It was also nice just to hear their voices on the other end of the phone, and brighten each others’ day! We received thank you notes via social media, and also received more phone numbers of our members who are willing to help out in a time of need.
Why do you do it?
Our mission remains the same throughout the years and any pandemic that comes our way. No one does more for Veterans, their widows, and orphans. We are a strong family, and these tragic events and hard times won’t break us!
