IN-COUNTRY

A satirical reflection by Author/Artist Phil Fehrenbacher

Phil enlisted in the Army in 1965 where you served for years in Vietnam.  He became a graphic designer and has worked for the state of Oregon for 26 years.  He retired in 2003 and started the Cartoon "In-Country".  The cartoons reflect his experiences during his tour of duty in South Vietnam.


There is a new cartoon everyday.

Commander's Corner

Commander Harley Boyles

FROM THE COMMANDER’S DESK: 03/28/2024


Next month we will again select leaders for our post for the 2024-2025 year. I have been considering the type of leaders that would be awesome for us.  And so I came up with a list of characteristics that might help us select candidates. Candidates should be applauded for even thinking about holding a position of responsibility. 

  1. Commitment- If you take a position, do it!  Show up to every meeting and event. If you can’t, let someone know why you can’t make it. See things through to completion. It is only for a year. You can do that on your head!
  2. Don’t come up with problems that need to be solved unless you have a plan to fix it. "They” is "You” so deal with it.  Leaders should lead by example. 
  3. Make a difference!  Come up with ideas and plans that are going to make our lives, Post and community better. 
  4. Have fun!  Being a sour puss is so unhealthy. We have stuff going on that is fun to do!  Enjoy the activities and each other. I really don’t think someone’s life is on the line for much of what we do. So lighten up!

I have been honored to be your commander. If I start whining about stuff, I am not serious!  I just like to whine. Ask Dorothy!
