May, marked officially as Military Appreciation Month, is a special month for both those in and out of the military. Not only do we pause on Memorial Day to remember the sacrifice and service of those who gave all, but the month also holds several other military anniversaries and events, including Military Spouse Appreciation Day and Armed Forces day. Help Post 1291 Honor our Men and Women who have and still serve to protect our FREEDOMS!
Tuesday Night Pool Tournament. Double elimination! Drink Specials! Starts at 7 pm. Come out and mingle with our Vets and show us what you got on the table for some friendly competition and fellowship!
Coming home doesn't mean the battle is over. With over 10 times the amount of veterans lost to suicide than to combat operations in the same time period, there has never been a more important time to TAKE A STAND and DO something to support our veterans!! If you or someone you know is suffering from PTSD, we have people that have shared a similar experience and are ready to help.
Ask not what your country can do for you, ask you can do for your country.
That from these honored dead we take increased devotion to that cause for which they gave the last full measure of devotion—that we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain—that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom—and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth. - President Abraham Lincoln
Patriotism consists not in waving the flag, but in striving that our country shall be righteous as well as strong.
May is Military Appreciation Month!"No duty is more urgent than that of returning thanks." -- James Allen
