March

Post 13, Post 30, and Post 1212

Members/riders supported the March 7th  Fight Like a Soldier event for Alyssa Gruender who is literally fighting through seizures each day and for her life as she deals with Rasmussen’s Encephalitis.  AMVETS teamed up to work for VFW 2778 and ran four 50/50 raffles raising approximately $1000.00 for Alyssa’s medical and transportation support.  A special presentation by Outagamie Administrator Tom Nelson proclaiming March 7th as Alyssa Gruender day.  Desert Veterans also made a $1000.00 presentation to Alyssa.

CVSO David Holst was with us and many other veterans attended! We hope that this event, silent auction, basket raffles, and food sales, helps this courageous family who has given so much in the past to helping children with cancer through their co-founding of Snowdrop Foundation and who now finds themselves seeking help.  Alyssa continues to fight through each day and with all our prayers we hope they find a cure soon. Special thanks to  VFW 2778- Jon Pylypiv who rallied for the cause, doing a lot of labor for this event (Yes I will work on getting him in AMVETS Post 30!) Thank you to all who attended and gave support to this event!  Please continue to  keep Alyssa in your prayers!

Post 30

Greenville AMVETS Post 30 supporting the proposal of Veterans Day for the HMONG Military who helped save many Americans during the Vietnam War. Many of HMONG People had to flee their country from persecution of those efforts.  Rick Vesperman, Kim Craddock, Jim Strong, and Jack Voight came to hear post member Sen Roger Roth  speak on this  new bill being proposed to recognize  May 14th as the official day in Wisconsin to recognize HMONG-Lao Veterans Day. Thanking the brave soldiers and their families as well as sharing stories and sacrifices was humbling opportunity and one we were honored to be apart of.  Please support the new Bill to recognize May 14th as HMONG Veterans day.  Please consider attending the event on Capital steps on that day.
