The U.S. Army is made up of the most dedicated, most respected soldiers in the world. These soldiers protect America's Freedoms while serving at home and abroad, and they are always prepared to defend the nation in times of need.
We are soldiers of the sea, providing forces and detachments to naval ships and shore operations. We are global leaders, developing expeditionary doctrine and innovations that set the example, and leading other countries' forces and agencies in the multinational military operations. These unique capabilities make us "First to Fight", and our nations first line of defense.
America's Navy is a force as relevant today as it's been historically significan for the last 238 years. The times may change, the threats may become more obscure, the complex nature of 21st century life may make the demand for such presence less obvious. However, now more than ever, the Navy is something to be aware of Something to be thankful for. Something to be proud of.
Air Force has a vision of Global Vigilance, Reach and Power. That vision orbits around three core competencies: developing airmen, technology to war fighting and integrating operations. These core competencies make our six distinctive capabilities possible.
We protect the personal safety and security of our people; the marine transportation system and infrastructure; our natural and economic resources; and the territorial integrity of our nation-from both internal and external threats, natural and man-made.

The Post Officers should carefully study and fully understand the principles of the organization since it is their duty to enforce its laws, rules, and rituals.There should be 100% attendance for all posts in the state which means there should be at least one person attending from each post in the state. If the Post Commander cannot attend, the Sr. Vice Commander should attend, if the Sr. Vice Commander cannot attend, the Jr. Vice Commander should attend. If you are unable to attend the School in your area, maybe you can attend the School in another area. This is a must training and I am requesting you make every effort to attend.
The importance of everyone attending is immediately apparent by being present your questions can be answered at once. It is also a chance for you to meet the State Officers that have been elected or appointed for the term of 2021-2022. Your presence will help show me that the State of Pennsylvania wants to continue its leadership role in the Veterans of Foreign Wars.
This training is necessary for all Post Officers by attending you will obtain valuable data that will help the Veterans of Foreign Wars to become a much-improved organization. After this meeting you will be able to function with confidence in your ability to perform your required duties.
You are aware that the leaders get the credit for whatever is right and the blame for whatever is wrong. Please attend this School of Instruction so you will always get the credit. When the School is completed, you will have a framework for a successful year and awareness that you are a key member of Commander Smith's
"Honor- Courage -Commitment" Team.
