The U.S. Army is made up of the most dedicated, most respected soldiers in the world. These soldiers protect America's Freedoms while serving at home and abroad, and they are always prepared to defend the nation in times of need.
We are soldiers of the sea, providing forces and detachments to naval ships and shore operations. We are global leaders, developing expeditionary doctrine and innovations that set the example, and leading other countries' forces and agencies in the multinational military operations. These unique capabilities make us "First to Fight", and our nations first line of defense.
America's Navy is a force as relevant today as it's been historically significan for the last 238 years. The times may change, the threats may become more obscure, the complex nature of 21st century life may make the demand for such presence less obvious. However, now more than ever, the Navy is something to be aware of Something to be thankful for. Something to be proud of.
Air Force has a vision of Global Vigilance, Reach and Power. That vision orbits around three core competencies: developing airmen, technology to war fighting and integrating operations. These core competencies make our six distinctive capabilities possible.
We protect the personal safety and security of our people; the marine transportation system and infrastructure; our natural and economic resources; and the territorial integrity of our nation-from both internal and external threats, natural and man-made.
As yesterday's defenders of freedom, we want to welcome today's military service members into our ranks to become part of our elite group. Our common bond is the battlefield, whether it is service in the Persian Gulf, Korea, Kosovo, the war on terrorism or peace-keeping expeditionary campaigns. Your courage and sacrifice have made a difference in preserving and defending world peace.
At Lake Washington Post 2995, YOU decided on the level of your involvement. Whether you wish to support from afar and never attend a meeting or a Post function…that is okay; or if it is to fully immerse yourself into the programs and be active within the VFW…that is your choice. Meeting agendas and minutes will always be emailed to you regardless if you attend or not, so you’ll always know of the Post activities. A monthly calendar and newsletter is also sent out. If this sounds agreeable to you, why not come down and let us show you around the Post.
Our Post meetings are scheduled for the third Tuesday of each month and we begin at 1830 (6:30p). Meetings last about 45 minutes and you have the option to teleconference if you cannot physically make the meeting. Our next meeting is Tuesday, September 15th.
