Commander's Article

I would like to thank a few people. First off I would like to thank Cowboy Bill and Toby for doing the Fish Fry on 02/02/2018. I got a report that they did 30 meals and could have done at least 3 more but did not have the stock to do it, because the freezer has not been stocked yet. They also made the beer batter to cook the fish. I wanted to try some but I had to cut dinner short with my son and his family and go home to bed. I hope I'm not coming down with what has been going around.

Secondly I would like to thank Artie for helping out Cowboy Bill on Thursday nights. We also had 3 members from the NAVY and MARINE ROTC helping out in the kitchen, I understand they will be helping out the Post for awhile to fulfill a commitment that they must perform. Thanks ROTC.

Lastly I would like to give someone a very big Thanks! When we started out we were comrades and now I would like to think that we are comrades and friends. We have had several discussions, some heated ones, but we got them worked out. He also has had a very difficult job trying to keep me straight. He also has a very thankless job of Quartermaster. When you see him, go up to him and give a big thanks for his service and not that he should have done this or that. Mr. Bill Spencer THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!!!
