Christmas and New Year Message From The Commander

Christmas and New Year Message

 

I would like to take a moment to wish everyone of this great and wonderful Post 9127 a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. As you take time with your friends and family enjoying the time with them I would like to remind you of those who cannot be with their friends and families. Take time to say a prayer for a safe return. Also remember those who have gone to a higher place before us and say a prayer for those family members and friends for peace and comfort as they who has gone before us look down upon us.

I sit here just a few days away from Christmas and soon a new year will be upon us. I can’t help but reflect on the year and think of all that has happen in my life and at the post. I have to say that even with a few bumps in the road I am very proud of all that is happing with our great post. I also look forward to the New Year and the chance to continue to serve this great post and all the members of our great post.

Please also take a chance to reflect on your own life and take the time to thank everyone that is a part of it for life is too short to take everything for granted.

I would like to take this chance to challenge everyone with the New Year to make a change or suggestion of something to the post to make it even greater.

I would like to tell everyone thank you for a wonderful year and hope everyone have a blessed and healthy year!

Again I want to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year, God Bless!
