Almost two years ago a high school junior name Riley visited Post 209 to apply for BOYS STATE. We sponsored him. He returned after attending to tell us about the experience and then we become busy with other projects and pretty much forgot about Riley. But he did not forget about us. A few Sundays ago he dropped by our post to thank use for sponsoring him to BOYS STATE and to tell us he had joined the armed forces. The following morning, like so many of us he was leaving on a jet plant not knowing when he would be back again. He was going to an unfamiliar place where he would meet strangers who would become brothers and sisters at arms. Be proud of yourselves and of Riley, he stepped out of the crowd, stepped up, raided his right hand before God and country and took the oath. He became one of us. Remember Riley in your prayers. I believe he is one of our best. Rex Rogers.

sgtmount: I fought side by side with Joe Hooper, I'm dismayed that so few members of Post 209 are on this forum, many other good men that fought side by side with Joe & I are on the Web. I'll see if can get a few more of them to join this forum. Over and Out

Admin: I finally got the Board interested in this forum. We will probably see some members signing up pretty soon. I've been promised that the newsletter will be sent email so I can post it here without having to retype it. Then we can advertise it to members.
