New guy here, just wanted to introduce myself
« on: March 12, 2014, 11:14:54 am »
Hey everyone!  New guy here.  Just wanted to stop by and introduce myself.  My real name is Steve, and I joined as a member-at-large in Massachusetts about 2 weeks ago.  I'm a Navy vet and served in the Persian Gulf during Operation Desert Shield.  I was a member of the VFW for about a year back in the mid 90's.  I wasn't as active back then and let my membership lapse.  Last night I went to my first post meeting and really enjoyed it.  It's a small post, only 5 active members, but I was impressed with all that they do, so I chose to transfer into the post.  I'm looking forward to getting in there and helping out when I can.  One thing I'd like to do is to help grow the membership of that post, so don't be surprised if I start asking questions about what other posts have done to help bring in new members.  Well, enough about me.

Welcome Steve.  I certainly look forward to your participation in our forums.  There are many threads dealing with a lot of different VFW issues.  Just choose one and begin asking questions.
