VFW Post 3404 in the Community

VFW Post 3404 is very involved in our community. From scholarship programs like Patriots Pen, Voice of Democracy, Scout of the year, and Teacher of the year, to Flag Education and our Buddy Poppy program, inspired by the poem "In Flander's Field," the VFW continues its members' desires to serve America. For more information, visit the VFW Community site.

The public is invited to a special patriotic service on Veterans Day, Tuesday, November 11, 2014 at 6:30pm- 7:45pm. The program is being put on by Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 3404 of Springfield at the Ridgecrest Baptist Church in Springfield, located at 2210 W Republic Rd, Springfield, MO, 65807. The Republic High School JROTC (Junior Reserve Officer Training Corp), and Republic artist Dave Garner. There will be a posting of the colors, the performing of the Battlefield Cross, music, videos, patriotic comments and presentations. All veterans will be recognized and honored, and we’ll specifically remember Sgt. Joseph Peters of Springfield who was killed in 2013 while serving his country in Afghanistan. A special presentation will be made to Sgt. Peter’s Gold Star family at this service. Wars are horrific, but brave men and women volunteer to serve their country knowing they may pay the ultimate sacrifice. We feel we owe respect and honor to all those who serve their country and to the families of the fallen soldiers. Whether or not you are a veteran, or active-duty military personnel, or have veterans or active duty personnel in your family, please join us.

 

Ridgecrest not only furnished the location but also provided all the printing of posters and handouts, items to cover all the portraits of those we've honored in the past that will be displayed, and the A/V expertise.  The Republic JROTC will be presenting the colors and performing the battlefield cross,  IN fact the fallen soldier attended Republic HS and was a cadet in the JRTOC there--so it is special to them. Of course the artist has done the portrait and gives a little talk about what his painting ministry has meant to him.
