4th of July Members Picnic

Our first 4th of July Members Picnic was a huge success thanks to the numerous volunteers who helped put it all together. Mother Nature helped as well because it was a stunningly beautiful day to have a picnic along the James River.

One hundred and twenty five people RSVP'd and judging by the crowd everyone of them attended, plus some.

There were hamburgers and hot dogs on the grills and all the dressings to go with them, as well as coleslaw, potato salad, baked beans, plenty of beer and soft drinks and ice cream.

There was also live music by the Old Money band and games to play.

Post Everlasting Memorial Service

Commander Arnold and Chaplain Jarreau conduct Post Everlasting for departed Veteran Members of Post 354. We honor our deceased Veterans for their Patriotism, love of their country, and willingness to serve and sacrifice for the common good.

Supporting Homeless Veterans

Liberation Veteran Services (LVS) offers homeless veterans the care, resources and stability needed to rebuild their lives. LVS believes two words that should never go together are "homeless" and "veteran." LVS is dedicated to providing a safe haven exclusively for veterans in crisis. Beyond offering transitional and rapid rehousing, LVS takes time to counsel each and every vet they serve, treating them with the dignity and respect they deserve. LVS believes this personalized approach to rehabilitation is the reason why the veterans LVS serves are able to successfully go on to lead productive, fulfilling lives in the community.

Post 354 is pleased to contribute toward helping other veterans.
