Vfw Post 334 Celebrates 75th Anniversary

Floor Speech

Date: Dec. 3, 2020
Location: Washington, DC


Ms. SLOTKIN. Mr. Speaker, today, I rise to celebrate the 75th anniversary of VFW Post 334 in Oxford, Michigan.

Since its founding, VFW Post 334 has served the local community in Oxford. Whether it is their shelf at the Oxford/Orion food pantry, a float in the annual Christmas parade, a regular fish fry, or maintaining the Orion Veterans Memorial, residents can count on the post to show up and support the community.

Post 334 is committed to making a difference in the lives of veterans. By praying for those deployed, supporting their families at home, providing a form to gather and share experiences of service, and honoring those who are no longer with us, the VFW preserves the bonds that are forged through military service.

For its work, Post 334 was recognized in 2019 as a Michigan All-State Post for the third year in a row. Most recently, it was awarded the Diamond Jubilee Award, given to VFW charters that have demonstrated exceptional service for three-quarters of a century.

Mr. Speaker, in closing, I thank Quartermaster Chuck Haskin, Senior Advisor Commander Randy Stetson, and Post Commander Jim Hubbard for their leadership and their service to the North Oakland community.

The spirit of Post 334 is perhaps best said by Commander Hubbard: ``We honor the dead by helping the living.''

Mr. Speaker, in addition to these remarks which will live on in the Record of the people's House, it is my privilege to recognize their service by arranging for a flag to be flown over the Capitol in their honor. This flag will be presented in Oxford to recognize their continued service to community and to country.

Mr. Speaker, I congratulate Post 334 on a successful 75 years and wish them the best in the 75 years to come.
