Commander's Message

"We had a great picnic this past Saturday! Our Picnic committee- Sr.Vice John Chrxanowski and Junior Vice Ray Hefferman and District Adjutant Tom Marshall (who over saw the tickets distribution and sales) did a fantastic job running the picnic for our District.
We appreciate American Legion Post #170 for both letting us rent their picnic area and all the extra help they provided.

There were  also some volunteers that also helped our picnic such as Past State Commander Bill Thompson and his wife Lauren,Doris Chrxanowski, Jan West and members of her Auxiliary;
plus there were several  others, that while I don't have all their names(John will mention more in his report), all help was appreciated!
It's also worth mentioning that the majority of our Posts supported us by buying tickets!
We're starting the new year with the Post inspections, and our committees are going forward with their responsibilities.
Dates to remember are our District #2 meeting-Oct.25th at Bergenfield Post #6467; Oct.31rst Patriot's Pen student entry deadline; Oct.31 VOD student entry deadline; and Oct 31rst Teacher Award nominations to Post deadline.
Last but not least-when you see a "Vet" ask them if they're a member of a VFW! Membership is going to be our number one job for quite awhile!
Paul Thompson
District #2 Commander

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Blue Star Mothers Chapter 3 of North Jersey and our Washington Elm VFW Post 192 (Ridgewood--Ho-Ho-Kus)have taken the lead and we as a District passed a District Resolution supporting them in working hard for the passage of the Honor and Remember Flag as an official NJ Flag.  On November 19, 2012 Governor Christie signed the A-2029 bill into law, so NJ is the 14th State in the Union to have the Honor and Remember Flag as an official State Flag (http://www.honorandremember.org/).  Thank you to all of you who contacted our representatives when we asked.  
 "'We can never give enough thanks to those who place their lives on the line, making the ultimate sacrifice, nor to the families they leave behind forever grieving', says BeBe Winans.  'The meaning and purpose of Honor and Remember, fits perfectly into this tribute which directly affects every American. '"

"BeBe has written a tremendous song that speaks directly to our mission of public appreciation of sacrifice. It is our hope that millions of Americans will be touched by this inspirational message and find their own ways of being thankful for the sacrifice that has preserved our freedom." George Lutz, Honor and Remember, Inc. www.HonorandRemember.org
