We also visit those confined to their beds. We have five Post Comrades who are residents of the hospital and we sponsor their VFW membership each year. Each Thanksgiving and Christmas we adopt military families in need though the USO and provide them meal baskets for each holiday, Christmas gifts for all the children, commissary cards for the parents, and a Christmas party where the children can meet Santa and receive a gift filled stocking.

We stay connected to 600 members through the website, newsletter, Facebook and Twitter. The post has been very successful in all endeavors.
