An excellent School of Instruction was held for District 18 on June 29, 2013 at Cabool VFW Post 473. District Commander Ed Hawley and Dept of Mo Surgeon Chris Johnston assisted by District Quartermaster Ruth Vaughn conducted a very informative School of Instruction outlining all the requirements and expectations of the Dept of Mo for all posts in the state. Questions were offered and answered in kind. Team spirit prevailed and District 18 expects a banner year in all programs.
Early birds waiting to begin and enjoying the opportunity to visit.
