Post 1990 was awarded the VFW  Bayonet award for having a 100% Membership drive for Fiscal Year 2021.

What is the significance of the White Hat? The answer is that every year Department selects Commanders and Quartermasters that have met certain criteria and gives them a White Hat as an award.

Only a handful are given each year, so it is a significant achievement. For the Commander, it is a Post award as much as an individual award. Without a lot of people doing their jobs correctly, it would be difficult for  the Commander  to earn his White Hat.

The Quartermaster earns their hat based on their individual performance. The Quartermaster is the bookkeeper of the Post and is audited by the Post Trustees. 

 

In addition, there are a variety of reports that the Commander and Quartermaster have to   submit throughout the year,

 This is the first time since 2011 that Post 1990's Commander and Quartermaster has earned  their white hats.  Congratulations.

A disabled  veteran called Post 1990  for help in obtaining info on how he could get a ramp built for better access to his home with his wheel chair.

After verifying the veterans service connected disability, Post 1990 supplied the materials and local volunteers built the veteran a ramp, a 10x10 foot deck and a small door ramp to access his home safely.

The veteran was very thankful for his new ramp and deck and wants to thank Post 1990 and the volunteers for the added safety in accessing his home and the enjoyment he feels sitting on his new deck.

Post 1990 wants to thank all who participated and donated their  time  to  this project.

USS Greeneville is a Los Angeles-class fast attack submarine,  built at the  Newport News Shipbuilding and Dry Dock Company in Newport News, Virginia, on 14 December 1988,  her keel was laid down on 28 February 1992. She was launched on 17 September 1994.

The USS Greeneville was named after Greeneville TN , the home of 17th United States President Andrew Johnson, after local residents, businesses  and government officials began a campaign for a submarine to be named after their town, rather than a large metropolitan area.
