Hi everyone. I have been working on an 85 year old Korean war Veterans home. After he had a stroke 5 years ago, his home fell into disrepair. This was an extreme hoarder home. So far, most everything has been covered by donations and volunteers. I'm going into week 3 & the volunteers have dwindled to a small handful. There is so much work still to be done. The home is located in Springtown. The immediate needs are someone to do the sheetrock work & painting, master bathroom & renovation. If you are able to volunteer your services, please pm me. If not, please consider any size monetary donation, so that I can get the materials and pay someone to help get this man's home completed! Please check out the event page to follow the progress. https://facebook.com/events/s/make-his-house-a-safe-home-aga/552376095624921/?ti=as If you would like to donate for this cause, I have a gofundme setup at gf.me/u/xmkwd4 Or there are other ways to monetarily donate listed on the event wall, that fees would not be taken from. Nbc5 covered the story last week, if you'd like to know more...... https://www.nbcdfw.com/news/local/parker-county-community-bands-together-to-help-85-year-old-army-veteran/2320771/ Thank you so much for taking the time to read all of this.

On Sept 19th, Senior Vice Commander Randall F. High had to pleasure to sit down with the Young Marines Youth Organization for POW/MIA Day ❤️❤️

In every conflict in which our Nation has been involved, selfless American service members have sacrificed their lives for the sake of our country and its principles. Too many have never come home, or they have had to endure unthinkable hardships as a prisoner of war. We at VFW Post 8235 echo the creed inscribed on the black and white banners that fly in honor of America's Prisoners of War and Missing in Action, and we renew our promise to our heroes, that "You Are Not Forgotten."

Looking good,almost done it looks like

[09/07/20]   To understand a Military Veteran you must know:
We left home as teenagers or in our early twenties for an unknown adventure.
We loved our country enough to defend it and protect it with our own lives.
We said goodbye to friends and family and everything we knew.
We learned the basics and then we scattered in the wind to the far corners of the Earth.
We found new friends and new family.
We became brothers and sisters regardless of color, race or creed.
We had plenty of good times, and plenty of bad times.
We didn’t get enough sleep.
We smoked and drank too much.
We picked up both good and bad habits.
We worked hard and played harder.
We didn’t earn a great wage.
We experienced the happiness of mail call and the sadness of missing important events.
We didn’t know when, or even if, we were ever going to see home again.
We grew up fast, and yet somehow, we never grew up at all.
We fought for our freedom, as well as the freedom of others.
Some of us saw actual combat, and some of us didn’t.
Some of us saw the world, and some of us didn’t.
Some of us dealt with physical warfare, most of us dealt with psychological warfare.
We have seen and experienced and dealt with things that we can’t fully describe or explain, as not all of our sacrifices were physical.
We participated in time honored ceremonies and rituals with each other, strengthening our bonds and camaraderie.
We counted on each other to get our job done and sometimes to survive it at all.
We have dealt with victory and tragedy.
We have celebrated and mourned.
We lost a few along the way.
When our adventure was over, some of us went back home, some of us started somewhere new and some of us never came home at all.
We have told amazing and hilarious stories of our exploits and adventures.
We share an unspoken bond with each other, that most people don’t experience, and few will understand.
We speak highly of our own branch of service, and poke fun at the other branches.
We know however, that, if needed, we will be there for our brothers and sisters and stand together as one, in a heartbeat.
Being a Veteran is something that had to be earned, and it can never be taken away.
It has no monetary value, but at the same time it is a priceless gift.
People see a Veteran and they thank them for their service.
When we see each other, we give that little upwards head nod, or a slight smile, knowing that we have shared and experienced things that most people have not.
So, from myself to the rest of the veterans out there, I commend and thank you for all that you have done and sacrificed for your country.
Try to remember the good times and make peace with the bad times.
Share your stories.
But most importantly, stand tall and proud, for you have earned the right to be called a Veteran.
I’m a VETERAN!
If you are a Veteran, please copy, paste and share.

Buddy Watch Walk

In 2010, Senator Conrad fought to get official recognition of PTSD via a “day of awareness” in tribute to a North Dakota National Guardsman who took his life following two tours in Iraq.

SSG. Joe Biel died in 2007 after suffering from PTSD; Biel committed suicide after his return from duty. SSG. Biel’s birthday, June 27, was chosen as the official PTSD Awareness Day, which is now observed every year.

June is also PTSD Awareness Month.

Today, the VFW pauses to remember and commemorate the 76th anniversary of D-Day. More than 156,000 brave Allied troops landed along the 50-mile stretch of Normandy’s beaches in an effort to liberate German-occupied France and bring an end to the Nazi regime. May we never forget the bravery and heroism displayed that day.

Military/Veteran Support

Post 8235 received a message from our comrades at Post 8911 that 400 troops from the Texas National Guard were deployed to in Grand Prairie for Covid-19 support and riot control and were in need of bottled water and snacks. Both Post rallied to help meet the need and delivered two truckloads of water and snack items on 3 June.

This should go viral...shame on AZ.

We have walked on #I20 and #I10 for over 1,000 miles. We haven't had any issues until #Arizona. In #Texas, #DPS walked with us and gave us 100% of their support. It was said we needed a permit by the Arizona State Highway Patrol to walk on the #interstate. We reached out to Governor Doug Ducey many weeks ago with no response. Our mission will continue on the interstate. #BuddyWatchWalk

[05/23/20]   Post Members and Patriots,
“Our flag does not fly because the wind moves
it. It flies with the last breath of each soldier
who died protecting it.”
— unknown
I wish everyone a safe Memorial Day weekend. As is our tradition, a group of us from the Post will go to Greenwood Cemetery and place a small United States flag with a buddy poppy attached on the graves of the departed members of our Post. This year we will also place flags on the graves of other veterans too, so they will be remembered on this Memorial Day weekend.

I will have an up-date for you on the Post facility coming soon, but today is a day to remember the sacrifices of the ones who gave their all.

Our Story

Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 8235 is an All-State Post! The All-State designation is reserved only for those VFW Posts who have completed a multitude of VFW mission projects, such as community service activities, Veterans service, youth programs, support of military personnel/ families, support of homeless Veterans and honoring the past sacrifices of our country's Veterans in time of war.

Our Post participates in the Veterans in the Classroom Program and provides direct support to Veterans through the Military Assistance Program, the Homeless Veterans Program, and by participating in the Meals on Wheels Program weekly. The Post assists Veterans in need by providing food, Veterans Administration assistance, financial counseling, and benefits coordination. Post 8235 also assists disabled Veterans and surviving spouses by providing transportation to hospital appointments, grocery stores, and assistance to obtain home improvements. Additionally, Post members visit Veterans in hospice and remind them they are not forgotten.

VFW Post 8235 is the first Veterans organization in the world to become a Blue Zone Participant. Taking the lead from Mayor Betsy Price, our Post joined the movement to change Fort Worth. Blue Zones are rare longevity hots-pots around the world where people are thriving into their 100's. Our Post helped to introduce, locally, ways that people can live longer, better® through community transformation programs that lower healthcare costs, improve productivity, and boost national recognition as great places to live, work, and play. We are happy to have been part of a program that brought Fort Worth's Nationwide Well-Being Rating from 185th to 58th!

Our VFW Post is active in the community and currently provides services in the following areas:
