President’s Message June 2021
 
 harrison In honor of Flag Day last month, we had a picnic at the VFW Post 423 grounds on Sunday, June 13th. While we did not attract younger Veterans in numbers we had hoped, we did have participants from Team Red, White, and Blue and friends from Warriors and Caregivers United. They pitched in to make the event happen. Representative Debbie Dingle was unable to attend due to health reasons, but she sent over a copy of the bill, signed by then President Donald Trump, that re-named the Ann Arbor VA hospital. A guest from Fisher House attended and expressed thanks for the strong support from the Veteran community.
 
On June 18th, many of our members were on hand at the re-naming ceremony for the LTC Charles S. Kettles VA Medical Center. Remember, our Rev. Bob Bull promoted the name change; our own John Kinzinger was one of the speakers. Other speakers were U.S. Senator Debbie Stabenow, U.S. Representative Debbie Dingle, Mayor Christopher Taylor, VA dignitaries, and Kettles family members. We felt that LTC Kettles had been suitably honored.
 
We still cannot get into the VA hospital to make our merchandise sales, but we are hopeful. In the meantime, planning continues for our biggest fundraiser of the year, the Pig Roast. This year, it will be on August 29th at the Saline American Legion. Then, in October, we will resume tradition with a Recognition Dinner at the UAW Hall in Ypsilanti Township.
 
On July 24th, from 10 am until 5 pm, the VFW Post 423 will be hosting an open house. We will be there, along with several other organizations. It will be an excellent opportunity to get questions answered (VSOs, lawyers, and others on-site) or chat and get free stuff. You may even buy a new pin for your cap.
 
Until then, stay safe. Stay proud.

 
Stan Harrison
