WELCOME TO 1LT SHARON A LANE MEMORIAL POST

Whatever It Takes
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.

GA War Veterans Nursing Home needs supplies- keep it coming
  • Last year Post 29717 supported the GA War Veterans Nursing Home (aka The Blue Goose) with 3 large donation deliveries
  • Their need never ends, I hope your generosity will not either. We will continue to support our Brothers and Sisters at the Blue Goose for the years to come.
  • They are specifically asking for the following items:
    1. Denture Cream
    2. Skid Resistant Socks- Need to have a rubber bottom, regular socks are not allowed.
    3. Deodorant
    4. Shampoo and Conditioners
    5. Bodywash
    6. Razors- these get discarded after 2 uses, so inexpensive razors are fine.
    7. Shaving Cream
    Brand names do not matter, if it helps your dollar go farther, buy the less expensive brand.
