FROM THE COMMANDER
My thanks to everyone who took part in any of the Veterans Day programs. It seemed to me that no matter where I looked, there was an AMVET. That says a lot for our members. Maintaining the utmost support of not only veterans of the past, but just as importantly those serving in the armed forces today.
Our AMVET family Thanksgiving Dinner was great, breaking bread with one another is just one way we strengthen the bonds between us as members. Our Winter State Conference was for me a proud time. Post #33 members excelled in assisting where ever needed. The Special Olympics, well, those eyes that shine like stars were more than enough to break any heart, even an old grouch like me.
Lots of activities coming up this month, I hope you will join us on Christmas Day for dinner around 1pm, of course the bar will be closed. Christmas Eve, 5-6pm the bar will host a members holiday party, a toast on Post #33.
Hey, on New Years Eve, it's a BLAST FROM THE PAST with Linda and other pluses. Flyers with more info will be up soon and the tickets are going to be reasonable, lets take the trip into 2002 with an attitude!!
Commander, Shorty Geiger

Christmas is here again. This year we have troops at war and scattered around the world, young men and women doing their best to safeguard this wonderful country. Pray for all of them. Helen and I would like to wish all of you a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. Remember all Veterans and POW/MIAs every day.
Peace be with you,
Lawrence (Larry) Thiele, Commander
