Commander Bill Walden
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.


Commander‘s Message Commander William Walden 631-667-4721: Hope everyone is enjoying their summer.  On Monday, July 8 we held our 2019 – 2020 Installation of Officers.  Installing Officer Past Sr. Post Commander Robert Obermeyer (1959 – 1960), with assistance from members Joe Ingino and Frank Rybak, did a great job.  Congratulations to all our elected and appointed Officers.  I would especially like to thank all the members who stepped up and took committee positions.  For the last three years we have been designated as an All State Post because of YOU ALL, the members of Post 3211. We, once again, will be hosting the VFW District 1 OTI classes this year on Saturday, September 28.  As Dean of the District OTI I will be asking our members for some help again this year.  I’ll have more details at the September meetings.  It is the way we get things done.  Reminder:  On Monday, September 2, Labor Day, we are responsible for placing and retrieving the American Flags on Broadway.  We meet at the Hicksville Fire House on East Marie Street at 7:00am to place them and then again at 5:00pm to take them down.  It only takes about ½ hour to place them and retrieve them.  Enjoy the rest of the summer.  We have a light schedule until things pick up in September again. Please keep our servicemen and servicewomen in your prayers.  Semper Fi.
