I attended last weekend's Quilts of Valor presentation and it was a great experience as always. I met Jacob Watkins, the founder of Operation Tackle Box, a family owned and operated team that focuses on planning out Fishing Expeditions for our veterans. They have full plans for helping Veterans get what they need: G.I bill, VA claims, absolutely anything and everything they can do, they will do. I'm attaching the link to their website as well as pictures of the front and back of Jacob's business card. I have invited Jacob to speak at our next Post/Joint meeting about his organization. Thanks for everything that you do. Operation Tackle Box
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Past All-State Post Commander and dear comrade Willis Byrd last weekend. Godspeed, comrade. Godspeed.
Busy week with two District Teacher of the Year, Patriot' Pen, Law Enforcement Officer and Quilts of Valor presentations as well as a VA Clinic Vaccination Support event. Once again, well done. Our next Post meeting will be on March 13th, both face-to-face and virtual. Meeting starts at 0930 hours with a joint meeting. Hope you can attend.
I continue to be amazed at the level of volunteerism that our post demonstrates in the community. This week, we distributed water and snacks to the staff and patients at the Newnan VA Clinic during their weekly COVID Vaccination drive-thru, presented one of our local Law Enforcement Officers their VFW Public Safety Award and collected and delivered 98 jars of peanut butter and 13 jars of jelly to Bridging the Gap.
The Coweta Veterans Club is closed until New Years Eve due to a positive, non-symptomatic COVID case.
