VETERANS Helping veterans
As yesterday's defenders of freedom, we want to welcome today's military service members into our ranks to become part of our elite group.  Our common bond is the battlefield, whether it is service in the Persian Gulf, Korea, Kosovo, the war on terrorism or peace-keeping expeditionary campaigns. Your courage and sacrifice have made a difference in preserving and defending world peace.

Rancho Cordova City Council Meeting

Even if we don't get a chance to speak, a show of numbers, VFW members in their VFW Caps/Shirts, may influence the council about providing space in the planned Community Center for veterans!

Post Membership Meeting

Tuesday July 20th

1900hrs at the Moose Family Lodge

If you haven't heard, VFW Post 10125 was selected as both All-State and All-American VFW Post for 2020-2021

These accolades we can all be proud of - all members of an All-American post can purchase accessory wear from the VFW Shop to display your pride.

Regular post drawing will resume 3 tickets for $5.00, 7 tickets for $10.00, 15 tickets for $20.00

Proceeds divided between winning individuals and the post - and it makes for a fun drawing after the meeting

A total of 40 tickets will be sold to upgrade one life member to 'legacy life' - for information on legacy life membership,  Click Here

The sales of the tickets will continue until 40 are sold, giving the winning member a chance to upgrade to legacy life membership for a mere $10.00 - the post plans on this being a continuous event, so there will be many chances to win (previous winners would upgrade to next level) - becoming a legacy life member supports both the individual and the post

This will be the first in-person meeting of the year - come and support our new commander - Commander Frank Squire

The post has a lot of committee chairs to fill - come in and prepare to volunteer!!

There will be pizza and soda available - hope to see everyone there to start off this new year.

Covid 19 immunizations

All eligible VA members can get set up at the VA for their shots - it is my understanding that even if not over 65 an appointment can be made SO DO IT

Other sites are available for the shots, notably UCD, and at some future date, CVS, Walmart, Walgreens...and others

The important thing is to get the shots, regardless of location
