Call to Action
On December 15th (Tomorrow) at 1 pm, we will be holding our first Membership Calling Drive. Members are encouraged to attend to help the post connect with inactive and out of state members. Approximately 40% of our membership lives outside of the Frederick area. Our post does an excellent job of connecting with active duty members of Ft. Detrick but over the years those members have moved to other parts of the country.  We will be contacting those members and attempt to connect them with their local posts and update their records with the VFW. Be sure to stop by and help us call folks.
