Commander’s Corner – Summer 2013

As the outgoing Post 9400 Commander, I would first like to congratulate our newly elected 2013-2014 officers and commemorate our 65th Anniversary! I’m looking forward to transitioning my duties in June, and I remain committed to working with everyone in the Post to have another successful year.

I would like to thank the officers and post members that supported my efforts as Commander.  Together, we were able to accomplish many of our 2012-2013 goals: another year of 100% membership; the countless hours donated to our veteran community; the overwhelming success of our Poppy campaigns; the efforts we have shown as leaders in our District; the money we raised to support veterans and the fight against cancer; the memories we shared with the exclusive showing of Honor Flight; and so much more.

I am also proud to announce that the majority of our newsletter has moved online at  This has been part of our ongoing effort to keep our members aware of up-to-date information, to recruit new members, and reach younger veterans that are seeking information online.

Remember that it is on all of us to recruit fellow veterans and their families to the post, and get our new members involved in post activities. I encourage all existing members to introduce themselves to any new members. Show them that while activities may vary from post to post, at Post 9400 we strive to be exceptional representatives in the VFW community.

Yours in Comradeship

Chuck Bong
Post Commander
2012 – 2013
