Contact Congress to help our troops - Ongoing
In 2011, Congress passed the Budget Control Act which mandated cuts across the board. This cut has impacted our military training and put our troops at an increased risk of injury or death. Flight training has been reduced and maintenance on aircraft, ships and armored vehicles has been delayed. As you can see, this reduction of funds has hurt our military in being prepared. Contact our legislatures and tell them to end sequestration and remove the budget caps that Congress set back in 2011. North Carolina Senator Thom Tillis serves on the Armed Services and Veteran Affairs committee. He can be reached at 202-224-6342 or by letter at The Honorable Thom Tillis, United States Senate, Washington, DC 20510.

Thanks to our many volunteers - Ongoing
Each month, many of our members work at the Post and in the community to support our veterans. To thank them all in each edition of the Post Newsletter, takes a lot of room - due to the number of people to thank. So we are now listing them here, with a big Thank You, so we don't miss anyone. Check out who we thanked this month.
