WELCOME TO 5TH

NO ONE DOES MORE FOR 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.
 
District 5 is the district home to National Junior Vice Commander Carol Whitmore. She was sworn in at the 124th National Convention in Phoenix, AZ on 7/27/23. She is the first person from Iowa to hold that position. Carol is also a Past All-American State Commander of Iowa for 2018 - 2019. Post 9127 is proud to have Carol as the new National Jr Vice Commander.
 
 
Next district meeting is April 20th at 9:00am. at Post 9668.

A satirical reflection by Author/Artist Phil Fehrenbacher

Phil enlisted in the Army in 1965 where you served for years in Vietnam.  He became a graphic designer and has worked for the state of Oregon for 26 years.  He retired in 2003 and started the Cartoon "In-Country".  The cartoons reflect his experiences during his tour of duty in South Vietnam.


There is a new cartoon everyday.
