wow such hate. well for putting in my 2cents. for almost a year my spouse and I have been attending the vfw for dinners and social hour. I have seen the meals cooked at the donut station and brought into the vfw to be served, more food than you could possible eat, and once a month they get catered from chicken annies in girard/pitt area, by request of members, these meals only cost $6, you cant even buy a happy meal for that and there is a full meal, dessert. they recently had a hog roast that packed the place. Scott is getting ready to deploy for the 2nd time to kuwait,he has a family,is self employed and volunteers his time to the vfw. he has also done meals on wheels delivering when no one else would. he is trying to help the community not hurt it, as for the kids there, on the night the person is talking about, family and friends were there to say farewell to scott and sing him some songs on karoake, if you paid attention you would have seen tears and cheers when his boys sang for him. yes his wife is the bartender, so what, a family is trying to help the community and serve the country, by the way his wife is also in the national guard, now with him deployed she will be doing all this by herself, so instead of throwing mud in their face for serving their family, serving their community , SERVING THEIR COUNTRY! trying throwing a smile their way and a thanks.
Yes you can too buy a Happy Meal for (LESS THAN)$6. Just wanted to clarify that for you.

I'm sure it's gotta be hard to be a business owner who really wants to make good money in that town to not think that if he were to be able to operate the VFW without some substantial monetary gain. I mean, hey, if you cut the fat, offer lower cost easier to make foods, not be open as much, and really turn it around to make it your way of the VFW, sure. You might see a profit. It's great that the man running the place has been deployed, served his country. I respect that. Truly. But it's a thin veiled shell to hide behind to try to make yourself more money. It does have an effect on the people you desire to serve there. It shows them that they are worth less to the operator. Not worthless, but worth less. There's a difference. I can only hope that there can be some kind of resolve that can be had to where the people will truly enjoy the VFW to be the place it is supposed to be. Not just a place for cheap beers and a marginally decent meal. It is for Veterans. They deserve better. At least I believe this. So count me in as it being my fault that I wont be showing up there anytime soon. As if a decision can really be construed as a fault. But if that's the way you think, then at least we all are able to realize that you only think in black and white. So quick to judge and yell at the people who have concerns.
must have missed the judging and yelling..oh wait i did spot someone using caps...lol...i dont think he is going to kuwait just to hide..really??? hhmmm i cant see much profit with a $6 meal which includes meat, tater, veggie, dessert and drink and seconds if you wish...how much profit do you think he is making..seriously? snd easy to make meals? hhmmm i am no chef but, i have seen hog raost, chicken fried steak, salisubury steak all the fixings, dessert, drinks, set up, clean up, serve...i dont see that as easy..how long does this take you to cook and set up? i was wondering how long it takes you to set up serve in realtion to scott doing it by himself...trying to see the whole movie in color not black n white..thanks for all your help in making this clear. p.s. i dont think scott and sharons issue is anybody but their own.

Ah, well you seem to already have your mind made up, it is a waste to hear a different side of the story, the manager is maligned, and everybody else is wrong. Except you. Probably a thought that runs through your head a lot. You wont see me there, and you wont have the pleasure of hearing my gentle, kind words of encouragement of how the VFW could be better. Seems to be well in hand, oh well. good luck with your exploits.

well hes got the vfw let him and his family have it thats what he wanted anyway he has ran all the good people off its not worth going to now all the hard work these people did has been for nothing and has meant nothing.what has took these people so long to buid up he has just walked in and tore down.That is fine I will support another vfw out of town. I have seen Nevadas and Pittsberg and talked to them very nice people bigger place nicer place a place for a adult to go to and get away from the kids for awhile and not have to deal with kids like fort scotts vfw.

That will be the fault of the pigheaded members who cannot except change not the fault of Scott! He has done nothing but follow orders and hasnt done anything to anyone personally! Get over yourselves. You blame him but the members are the ones in the wrong! You all are so quick to judge him because his last name is Beerbower thats the real issue. Well guess what he aint like the others he wasnt raised here you all go on heresay! Just because a friend of yours said it oh my it must be true!!!! Then I hope when you friend decides to jump off a bridge you do too!

i would like to comment on Mr.Beerbower. He is not a nice guy. Has a huge ego that needs to be fed. Couldn't believe he even has a wife. Wonder how he treats her? He came in and literally got Boone's closed by being a pompous ass and rude to the owners there. That place had been opened in FS for ever and had a great business till he decided to move parking blocks and take "his" 3 feet of space. Guess now he has done the same thing with the VFW. Hope he doesn't try to get the DQ closed like he did Boone's.
His donut business supplies convenience stores but you can see where everyone goes here in town to get their donuts. He really is not a happy person otherwise he wouldn't act the way he does to people. If you want to see what I mean go into the donut place for lunch and just get a coke and watch. It is very interesting.....how he treats customers. It is like they are putting him out! Grab a coke before you go and take it in there. You will see fast how he treats others.
