Color Guard Recruiting

We need personnel to fill slots with our Post Color Guard unit. Looking for individuals with prior experience with marching in parades, presenting colors, part of rifle detail and folding coffin flag for funerals of veterans.

Must be able to perform weekday and weekend details. Uniforms will be provided, and we will be setting practice times to establish comfort levels and proficiency with providing rifle volleys. We follow US Army dress blue uniform standards and manuals for movement.

Individuals interested, contact Interim Color Guard Captain Thomas Bynum at 804-982-0044 or email pastorthomasbynum@gmail.com.

VFW Post 9808 Riders

The Post 9808 Riders will have fellowship and a meeting on the 4th Thursdays of the month. The fellowship starts at 6:00 pm and the meeting starts at 6:30 pm. This is open to all Rider members and any one that is interested in joining our group. This month, we will be updating the Riders registration and liability forms, planning rides and the way ahead. If you have questions, contact Ron Scoville by email @ ronscov@gmail.com.

If you have a flag that needs to be retired, Post 9808 has a drop box just for that purpose. The drop box is located just to the  left of the front door.
