THIS IS OUR POST.

What have you done to help our Post and our Veterans lately?

We always need volunteers to help with events, and members to patronize the Canteen. To those who repeatedly assist with Post functions, we thank you all. For those that seldom visit or assist, we cannot stress enough that we need more members to participate in Post activities and events. Please join us at these wonderful events, including not only the special events each month, but patronizing and supporting your Post Canteen. Whether for Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner, Friday Night Live Entertainment, Picnics, Holidays, weekend  or other sporting events, we're always open for all our members and their families and guests. Don't forget, the large and small meeting rooms are also available to rent for special events! We can only support others if we support ourselves first.

 

Please support your Post through volunteering your time! We can certainly use all the support we can get.  Every hour spent and mile driven benefits our vets and counts towards our annual reporting, so make sure that you're documenting any time spent supporting Post or Veteran activities.

This years stops included VFW Post 392 (Virginia Beach), Monks Place (Pungo), VFW Post 3160 (Norfolk), VFW Post 4809 (Norfolk), and Bucketheads (Virginia Beach). Thank you all that participated, all the volunteers that supported the day's events, and Mission BBQ Virginia Beach for their donation of lunch for us all. It was great!! We hope to see you all again next year!!

 

 

SHOP WITH A VET
December 17th, 2016, 9:00 AM
NAS Oceana Exchange


Post 392 held our 7th annual “Shop with a Veteran” on December 17th. Sometimes our military families fall on hard times. We’ve all been there. And around the holidays, it’s that much more distressing.
This outstanding program offers some holiday assistance by providing selected families in such situations, a chance to still bring a Christmas smile on their children’s faces.

Our Post, in partnership with the Association of Naval Aviation, was able to give seven local Military families an opportunity to meet us at the NAS Oceana’s Navy Exchange and purchase their own Christmas gifts. Each child was allotted a designated amount and the shoppers were accompanied by a Post 392 or ANA member.  As always, we had a great time, and the hugs and thanks were plenty!

Here's a few photos from the event. Click on each to enlarge.

RELAY FOR LIFE

June 4th, 2016

     

    Good afternoon Mike,

                    Saturday June 4, 2016 Salem High School, Virginia Beach, Virginia was the date and site of the Annual Community-Wide American Cancer Society Relay for Life. The attached photo, which appears in the Virginian Pilot Online, only shows a portion of the VFW-392 members who led the first lap, the official opening of this fundraising event. Not photographed were Mark Winn and David Goldstein. The Flag Bearer was Mike “Breeze” Barea, VFW-392 Team Captain and to his left VFW Life Member and Prospective VFW-392 Post Commander Steve Graves. It was estimated that over 3,000 people participated.  160 Teams were registered and to date over $241,000 have been collected.  Our very own “Bad” Steve Graves served as Master of Ceremonies. VFW-392 surpassed its donation goal of $6,000 placing itself in the Top Ten of Teams collection efforts.  To date VFW-392 has raised $6,260 (UPDATE - A FINAL DONATION OF $740.00 was received on 6/7, pushing the total raised to $7000.00!!). Combined with last year’s total of $5,300 VFW-392 has raised over $11,500 in the fight against cancer.  THANK YOU and WELL DONE to all those who contributed. To our small group of participants, who joined us in walking around the track, THANK YOU for your above and beyond efforts, especially Mark Winn who walked nearly 13 miles for the cause!

    Nearly everyone has been touched by cancer, either through their own personal battle or through the battle of someone they know and love, and this disease has taken too much from too many. Our participating in the Relay For Life event is because we know we are making a difference in the fight to end cancer by raising funds and cancer awareness. A Relay For Life event is not only a way to join our community to fight back against cancer, but it is also a way to inspire hope by raising funds and cancer awareness to help those facing a diagnosis.

                   By walking in a Relay For Life event we, VFW-392, joined more than four million global volunteers who are dedicated to finishing the fight against cancer. This was our (VFW 392) opportunity to honor the cancer survivors in our lives, remember friends and family we have lost, and to raise funds to support the American Cancer Society’s lifesaving mission.

                   Please join me and my teammates in thanking those who  made generous donations, some from Norfolk Post #4809, in support of our collective efforts. Please add a special thank you to our Post’s Auxiliary assisting in our campsite set up complete with food and drinks.  Thank you!

    Together, we WILL finish the fight against Cancer! 

     

    Very Respectfully,

    Mike Barea (breeze)

One of our annual traditions is that Post 392 Marches in the Ocean View Saint Patrick's Day Parade. We Marched approximately 1.5 miles to the reviewing stand on First View at Government Avenue.  It was a bit cold and rained a little but as always, we have a blast during the parade.  A huge shout out to the members of the VFW Auxiliary, who support us in all we do and had a really fun day! Here's a few photos from the parade.

 

 

US Patriot Sailing "Meet and Greet" on 23 February at 1830

 

In preparation for the 2016 sailing season, US Patriot Sailing held a “Meet and Greet” for potential Patriot Sailors in Hampton Roads

 

Agenda:

Attendees were provided with an overview of US Patriot Sailing organization, mission and review the known schedule for 2016.

Anyone desiring to race regularly starting April at Little Creek or Willoughby can sign up; those wishing to only race off-shore can also sign up; as those that wish to race less frequently.

 

Who is eligible to participate:

Combat Veterans, Wounded Veterans, and Gold Star Family members interested in competitive Sailing. No sailing experience necessary.

Non-combat Veterans and Active Duty Personnel interested in participating in US Patriot Sailing (Note: Combat Veterans and Gold Star Family members are our Priority)

Other personnel interested in supporting or racing, as available.

US Patriot Sponsors are welcome.

Note: There is no cost to Veterans  or Gold Star Families to participate in US Patriot Sailing Events

 

Please forward this information to anyone you think might be interested in participating in Patriot Sailing.

 

Background:

US Patriot Sailing, is a 501(C)(3) non-profit

http://www.uspatriotsailing.org/home.html

 

US Patriot Sailing Mission: 

Harness our nation’s Heroes' endless drive and determination.  U.S. Patriot Sailing competes at the highest level of amateur sport, and helps our Heroes navigate a healthful journey by:

•             Reuniting Heroes to train and accomplish team missions.

•             Re-inspiring Veterans to see beyond their injuries and perform to their full potential.

•             Reintegrating Warriors to the home front through teamwork, camaraderie and accomplishment.

 

Programs: 

For the 2016 racing season in Hampton Roads, our crews have the opportunity to train and compete together on a weekly basis over the course of a six month long sailing season.  During the off-season our community remains connected through training seminars and various group events.

We are recruiting Combat Veterans from every generation and service for our 2016 sailing season.  Non-combat Veterans and Active Duty are welcome to augment crews, but Wounded Warriors and Combat Veterans are our priority.

No sailing experience is required and there is no cost to Veterans to participate in our sailing events.  Our crews include a mix of experienced sailors, as safety is our first priority.

2015 was our first year of racing.  We trained 27 Patriot Sailors for over 30 races, including a crew that competed in an offshore race from Charleston, SC to Annapolis, MD. 

The 2016 season has already kicked off with two Patriot Sailors competing in the FT Lauderdale to Key West Race, and a crew first place in the New Year’s Day Race out of Norfolk, VA.

Our goal for the 2016 season is to increase Veteran involvement to 40-60 Patriot Sailors and compete in 75 race starts between Hampton Roads, Annapolis and various offshore races.

Thank you to all that participated and brought cheer to these military and veteran families.

RELAY FOR LIFE

Words cannot express the gratitude and appreciation I have for all of the VFW-392 volunteers who assisted and participated over this past weekend's Relay for Life Event held at Salem High School, Virginia Beach 6-7 June 2015. VFW-392 raised over $5300 ($2500-Goal), that's double what our goal was set out to be.  I’m hopeful to add to our donation totals by selling the remainder of 2015 JEEP WRANGLER 4 Door SUV Raffle Tickets.  Raffle Tickets are $10 apiece. Overall, we had 29 volunteers come out and brought food and drinks, assisted in camp site set-up, breakdown and walk the many laps, over an 18 hour period, needed to raise funds and cancer awareness.  The overall event raised over $272,000.  It appears many who stopped by and visited our campsite, viewed our participation favorably and are looking forward to next year's 2016 Relay for Life, Virginia Beach. It was a great VFW recruiting opportunity. Once again, thanks to ALL!

 

Sincerely,

Mike Barea (Breeze / GIB)

We asked for a few sailors to help out - Neil brought 12! These returning heroes, fresh off of a 9 month deployment, made quick work of setting up our VFW 392 games booth (and running it too!) then disbursed throughout the Carnival grounds offering assistance to more than 50 other Veterans Groups there and the over 800 disabled Vet's in attendance - as well as helping Hospital staff with patient care. The Black Lions went above & beyond - while also showcasing our Post's continuous Volunteer Spirit and devotion to ALL Veterans!
