The Coweta Veterans Club is closed until New Years Eve due to a positive, non-symptomatic COVID case.
Our post has been blessed to be able to partner with our local Homestead Hospice organization. This organization arranges for the Final Salute to our Veterans who are in hospice and we are honored to be able to provide that support. Here are several other programs that are being sponsored by Homestead Hospice.
Prior to our monthly meeting yesterday, the sons of our late comrade Charles Kennedy presented me a message from their dad. His son informed me that the message was written on the inside cover of a notebook that they recently uncovered. The title of the message is "We are the Forgotten," and want to share it with you now.
Twenty-four post members, thirteen auxiliary members and three children of family members staged donated supplies, then packed 1,000 support bags in support of Operation Gratitude, a nationwide organization dedicated to veteran and first responder support. The bags will be delivered to community veterans and first responders later this week as a thank-you for their service. Here are a few of the pictures. More pictures are available on our Facebook page.
