Governors Order EF: Governor of Ohio Order to close Bars and Restaurants TO: All VFW Posts and Districts From: State Commander, Dept of Ohio Comrades, In light of the Governor of Ohio’s declaration to close all Restaurants and Bars at 9PM tonight, which includes Posts and Lodges, I’m issuing the following Emergency General Order: - VFW Posts will close their Canteens at 9PM tonight. While Canteens are closed recommend you use existing employees to clean and sanitize the Post, in this way they are still employed. - The “Post” itself may remain open for the conduct of critical Post business only, all other activities (dinners, bingo, etc.) are to be cancelled. March Post meetings are suspended for March. Recommend you utilize Line Officers and/or Executive Committees to conduct business if you have a critical issue to address, preferably by Phone, E-mail etc. The goal is to limit person-to-person contact, i.e., Social Distancing!! - The Department will monitor the situation and provide additional guidance as it develops!! Use the chain-of-command for questions/inputs/concerns. I do not take this action lightly. Per our National HQ, “The VFW takes the health and safety of our staff and members very seriously; it is our first priority.” Dan Faulkner State Commander Dept. of Ohio
Due to the closing of the VFW Post 6710 ALL meetings and functions are now Cancelled.
Election Day is March 17th. Please get out and voice your opinion.

Coming home doesn't mean the battle is over. With over 10 times the amount of veterans lost to suicide than to combat operations in the same time period, there has never been a more important time to TAKE A STAND and DO something to support our veterans!! If you or someone you know is suffering from PTSD, we have people that have shared a similar experience and are ready to help.
