  1. Our monthly dinner meeting will be on Thursday, March 2, 6 pm, Roy Meeting Room.  Meals are now $5.00.
  1. The Major Scott Hagerty / SPC Derek Holland Memorial Ruck March will be held on Saturday, March 4th.  The ruck march will begin at the Perkins AmPride Travel Station at 9 AM.  The marchers will proceed north on Hwy 177.  The procession will stop at Sunset Cemetery to honor Scott Hagerty (at approximately 10:15 – 10:45 am).  The ruck march will continue north on Hwy 177 to the Scott Hagerty Memorial sign just south of Stillwater.

This event was started a number of years ago by Earl Granville.  Earl wanted to honor Scott because, while in Afghanistan, Scott took Earl’s seat in a vehicle that was hit by an IED.  Earl, in the same vehicle, lost a leg in the explosion.

If you want to show your support, meet me at the Sunset Cemetery at 10 AM.  I will have water for the marchers and anyone else who needs a drink.

  1. For those of you who have paid your dues – Thank You, Thank You, Thank You.

It’s now 2023, if you haven’t paid your dues, do it now!! 

  1. If you have been thinking about running for a Post leadership position, now is time to make your desires known.  See Floyd Branson, Jim Motes or Bob Cox.  If you need any information about any of the positions, I can fill you in on the specific job you may be interested.

That’s it for this month, see you on the 2nd.
