Dear friends of VFW Post 4353 Pine Island

December 7, 2016
Pine Island Eagle

To the editor:

As our year 2016 is coming to a close and the end of our Men's Auxiliary, I want to reflect on our Men's Auxiliary to Post 2353.

For the last 10 years I have been president of our organization. I have worked with several key people in our post and have learned much about our great unit. I am sure Post 4353 is not unique nationwide but it is unique to me. I will dearly miss all the fine people I have had the pleasure of knowing throughout the years. Our Men's Auxiliary created an atmosphere that everyone wanted to be a part of.

The National VFW decided to combine our Ladies Auxiliary and Men's Auxiliary into one auxiliary and call it 'the Auxiliary." There will be no more Men's Auxiliary nationwide as of Dec. 31, 2016.

Heading an organization such as ours was not an easy task. It was the wonderful support from our members that made the job a lot easier. Special thanks to all the past commanders for their guidance and support.

I want to thank each and every person I have been associated with during my years as president. This is not the end of an era but the beginning of a new one. I encourage our members (who qualify) to join the new auxiliary and continue to work for our veterans.

The "V" is like a second home to many. Let's strive to keep this in place.

In closing, remember our veterans and continue to support them and Post 4353.

Ron King

President of VFW
