VFW Says: Boycott Mexican Products Until Tahmooressi Is Released!

“This is about politics, and if my government won’t do anything, then I guess we need to let the power of the purse take over. No products, no travel, a total boycott … then maybe a dialogue will start.” -VFW CIC Bill Thien Continue reading

Newsletter Post 10519 June, 2014

JUNE-2014 NEWSLETTER Greetings Post Members, and Friends of Greendale VFW Post 10519, The June newsletter is a little later in the month than usual. Quartermaster Ken Kieck, Auxiliary President Nancy Ustruck and I attended the State VFW Convention in Eau Claire from June 4th to the 7th. We postponed the newsletter in case there would be any important new information to share. There are no major changes or important news at this time. There was much discussion on the problems with some of the VA Hospitals and many opinions regarding the recent prisoner exchange.

The Post and Auxiliary also received a Certificate of Appreciation for our monthly newsletter in the small post category The drawing for the … Continue reading
