Harrison VFW Newsletter June 2017
I would like to thank everyone for the opportunity to serve as Commander of Post 7570. Due to my work commitments, I was not able to participate in as many activities as I had hoped to. I travel around 27 states and VFW Duwel Post 7570 is the BEST that I have ever seen. Everyone does such a great job here volunteering to make this Post the Post that it is. We need younger VFW members to step up and take positions on the Board and learn how to run this place. You can make this Post better and help more Veterans and our local community. I feel confident when leaving knowing your new commander is John Neal. He is a past All American Post Commander of this Post. Welcome Aboard John.
Michael W. Jones, Commander

NEW COMMANDER’S MESSAGE
Effective June 10, 2017, I will become your new Commander. I look forward to being a part of this wonderful Post. I was Commander in 2009-11, this Post has made so many improvements since that time. PLEASE come to me if you have suggestions for improvements. If you just want to complain, bring a solution to the problem, we will discuss it and a decision will be made. Don’t forget the BIG gun raffle. This is a great fundraiser for the Post and we need your help.
