Due to the pandemic, we were unable to hand out poppies, for a donation, at store fronts. Instead, we have given some to the Post Color Guard, to hand out, when providing military honors at funerals. We also included them with June newsletter mailout. We will continue to accept donations so that we can support the needs and celebration of veterans.
“The red poppy is a sacred symbol to remind us, as we head into Memorial Day, of those who gave their lives for our freedoms,” the commander and president added. “Their sacrifices cannot be forgotten this year, so it’s going to take some creativity and innovation to conduct local National Poppy Day® events May 22 and distributions over Memorial Day weekend.”
Auxiliary members need to supply a copy of DD-214 discharge papers for the relative through whom their eligibility is established. The DD-214, officially "Certificate of Release or Discharge from Active-Duty," but generally referred to as a DD-214, is a document of the United States Department of Defense, issued upon a military service member's retirement, separation or discharge from active-duty military.
