Greetings Rocket Post,

     14 June 1777 commemorates the adoption of the Official American Flag by resolution of the Second Continental Congress. On 30 May 1916 President Wilson established a national Flag Day on 14 June and in 1949 President Truman signed legislation proclaiming Flag Day as a National holiday although it was never considered a federal holiday.

     Monday 14 June 2021 is Flag Day and the US Army birthday. Come celebrate 246 years of the Army serving and defending our country this evening at 6:00 PM (1800Hrs.) at the Rocket Post. We will hear a short speech form our Commander Mark Kelley and we will cut the Army Birthday Cake.

     General Membership keep in mind we have our monthly meeting this Wednesday at 7:00 PM so if you want your voice to be heard this is the time to do it.

     On Monday 28 June we will be celebrating Bill Fanning’s Life. I know you all remember Bill; he was an awesome kitchen manager as well as one heck of a cook. On top of all that he was a Marine, a husband, brother, father and he was an all-around great person. Please mark your calendar and come celebrate with Bills Widow, Ro, and their family. Let’s have a fantastic celebration for a great man and a big part of the VFW Rocket Post. More details to come.

     Quick side note; If you have items you would like to donate please take them to Down the Road Thrift store in Cocoa by the water tower. Jerry Vaughn will take care of your donations and ensure they get to a new home. Please do not drop off your donations at the Rocket Post.  


                                                            Have a wonderful week.
